Using scraps, adding products and making a display.

I made a pile of fabric scrap magnets. Some of the fun ones are gone already, but I thought I’d share the fun little display ideas we came up with. At the craft show on Friday all my little magnets were in a dish together and sticking to each other whenever anyone took a look at them. Luckily I was with a creative friend and she came up with a great idea. Then we both went home and made one! Hers is way better though . . . her kid is quietly contained in her belly so she has more time than I do.

Joanna’s idea was to take a cookie tin lid and Modge Podge some fabric on the inside for a nice backing. I’ll probably add some piping or something around the inside.

I whipped mine up really quickly and wasn’t sure how permanent it was, or if she got to making one, so it’s really easy to take this one apart. Which is good if you need something like this but only have 1 cookie tin and need it later . . . or something.

Using a smaller cookie tin lid I cut a circle of fabric and wrapped it around it and secured it in place with a circle of cardboard and an elastic for good measure.

It would stand up nicely on a little plate stand or one of those book display easels. They were a great addition to my cup cozies and bags and totes. Small, cute and inexpensive a lot of people picked one up as they paid and added it to their purchase.

  1. I came across your blog from a link on the Follow Me I’m Canadian site. I love to discover Canadian sites and I promote them here at my Canada Blog Hop I’ve added you if that is okay, let me know if you don’t want it added. Love the idea of the magnets which I’m going to use for my grandkids when they are travelling in the van with me.

  2. Very cute idea. Way to use your resources!

  3. I love the cookie tin magnet-board idea,and I like the idea of securing it with the cardboard. So simple! I found you through wild olive, and I just love the little fabric scrap magnets. Do you make those with your button maker?

  4. I like both the lids ! Great idea for displaying small magnets ! :)
