Magnet Trio & mini Chalkboard Eraser

This trio of magnets and mini chalkboard eraser came with the Message Center I mentioned that I got from Savers. The bottom portion of it is a magnetic chalkboard that needed some touching up. The magnets were plain white wooden circles. As you can see I “cute”d them up with doodlebug stuff!

Using brads, paper, stickers, buttons, twine,and etc I was successful at “Cute”ing up these essential items for my Message Center.  I found the circles easy to decorate as they were 1 1/4″ circles.  I was able to use a circle punch to add details to them.  I decided the eraser needed to be cute on the front and not the top because the front is what is seen more.  So I used a fun fancy frill and a icon in yellow and green  in keeping with my color scheme.  After punching a 1/8” inch hole on either side of the oval icon I threaded some thin ribbon through the holes and then knotted the ribbon on top of the sticker.  See photo to get this. 🙂  I love daisies as my blog says so when I “cute” things up they usually factor in somewhere along with my favorite color yellow!  I sure hope when you make cute, beautiful things to add to your life that you include your favorite colors and things!!  I will be posting soon a picture of the completed message center – mini bunting and all!!
