Refrigerator Magnets

The Frugal Finds challenge on SCS was to find some old somethings you have around the house to recycle. Have I got some junk here, I can't seem to part with anything. I found these casters that were from some older furniture we no longer even have and some flat magnets I got in the mail with advertising on it.















I used some double sided adhesive sheets, cut to fit caster frame and lightly sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. (These sheets are from Close To My Heart). The swirly image was stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink on retired Cool Caribbean. Stick sheet to it, and then to caster.














This is what some of the finished magnets look like. I used Ocean Commotion for the fish and Just Buzzin' By with Chocolate Chip and Summer Sun. I'll be back later with some more pictures, I'm getting evicted from my craft room for a while due to some construction we have going on.
