Get-It-Straight School Magnets
School Magnets by Ann Butler
I have collected a lot of magnets over the years; the kind of magnets that calendars, events and other things are printed on. They are to good to throw away but are out of date so they are perfect to re-purpose. With back to school here already I thought this would be a great time to make some school magnets...the kind that can be used to show off those great school projects, spelling test, drawings and other things that parents so proudly place on the fridge from their kids. I grabbed some white card stock and printed off some sayings like: "Awesome", "Good Job" and "Way to Go" using the Floot font from the Duetica Lettering System. I cut them out and layered them on top of some print card stock in school colors using the "Get-It-Straight" Laser Square and glued them onto the magnets, then I trimmed the magnet down to size. Oh so quick and easy, but the kids are going to love them.
