I've gone Modge Podge crazy! You should see all the fun stuff I'm crafting around this place!! You will, eventually, but I thought I should post this, because it goes along with Halloween, being that it's Pirates. And Andie, if you see it before Brenden's Party, sorry! I couldn't wait to share it.
My cute little buddy is having a pirate birthday party today. So I wanted to follow the pirate theme. I love giving homemade presents. It's just what I do. So the other day Brenden was at my house and saw some of the holiday tins that I was making and he said he thought they were cool. So I made him a cool one with skull and crossbones on it. Of course I filled it with some fun little pirate treasures. Then I decided to make him this fun little magnet set. I made about a million of these magnet sets two years ago for just about every kid I knew. I did them in nativities and pirates and oh, so many other things. I can't even tell you where I got the tins because I ordered a ton of them for a super Saturday project 3 years ago and ended up with dozens of them left,
The magnet's are sooo EASY! You buy a roll of magnet at Robert's. Make sure you use your 40% off coupon, it helps a lot. I paid about $6.00 a sheet for magnet and you can do oodles of magnets off a sheet. Peel the stickers off and stick on the magnet and cut out. The stickers work better if they are clear on the edges. I have done jungle sets, farms animals, Cars, Kung-Foo Panda, bugs and just about anything popular that kids like. These are the BEST Sunday toys. Stick them in the diaper bag and they keep kids busy forever.
