Magnatized to Personalized!!! DYI

Ever thrown away a few of these? This is one of those magnetic calenders businesses use to advertise on phone books, pamphlets, etc. This one came on my phone book at work. I think they are neat...but I really don't want to use them to advertise on my refrigerator!

***LIGHT BULB!****
  • I used a regular 4x6 photo of my husband and I.
  • Double Stick Tape
  • Trimmed up the sides to fit
AND......Voila! Here it is on my refrigerator! (yes, I realize my picture taking is horrible....the lighting was just bad in my kitchen!)

Try it for yourself, it is SUPER easy and I think it's cute!


What do YOU think?
