    I am torn between useful sized magnets and larger artsy magnets but I think a big artsy magnet would cover up what it was supposed to be holding..I guess it would be magnetic eyecandy!

    Ok so I liked the idea so much I broke into my old earring stash and made magnets – burned my finger good on the hot glue… I had some awful looking earrings – way too big for my ears – nice magnets ‘oD I also have a stash of old game parts – I’m thinking those might make nice magnets too. I found some old wooden monopoly houses at GW the other day – not sure what to do with them. The Campbell soup tray is in too good shape to scratch up with a bunch of old magnets- gotta go check out GW… LOL

    got old typewriter keys to add magnets? would be cute individual or formed into a word like memo or ?

    Oh, I like the glue on earring idea!!!! Maybe a gaudy or antique button glued on a magnet. I like advertising type metal so I stuffed some magnets into old metal bottle caps & glued. I have a Cambell’s Soup tray would work up nice as a magnet board.

    I say with the lovely pink magnet board you need to use old jeweled earrings for a little “bling”. Remove the back of clip earrings and glue on magnets. Good luck and let’s see what you come up with.

    Love it!!!

    So cute! I like to paint embellishments, so I would paint a small swag of rosebuds across the top, but that’s just because I automatically look for opportunities to paint. Looks nice just the way it is.

    I made it from vintage crystals from my stash. It is 2 long prisms and one tear drop prism and 2 8 bead sections of garland..I just hooked together what I thought would be pretty for this.

    WHERE did you find the crystal embellishment?
