Fridge Notepads

My first project
in my new studio
came from this inspiration
from Kristy at
Next to Heaven

I took these coasters
from the $1 bin
at Michael's

I lightly scuffed
them up
with a sanding sponge

Using my cricut 
I cut a 4in
circle using the 
craft room
 and George cartridge

I modpodged
them together
and put a layer
on top to seal 
the paper

I then took the sanding sponge
and sand with a downward motion

sanded I removes the excess
paper and seals the papers

match up the notepads

Also with cricut
I cut a rectangle
1.25 w x 1.986 h
out of scrap
paper to cover the binder clip
I also scuffed it up 
with a fine sanding sponge

glued them in place

then added
this one is a flower button

that I cut the
 shank off of it
and glued it to
he binder clip

and added a magnet
on the back

I also cut a 6 in 
piece of ribbon
and tied it on
 to the back clip

This project will use 
a lot of your scraps
 up not to mention
those leftover 

I will be selling these
and my next
 major decision
is whether or not
I should wrap
them in cellophane or not

the pro is it keeps them protected
The con is they are slightly obstructed

What are your thoughts
cellophane or not?


  1. What a fun and creative idea! I love the $1 section at Michael's. I like them in the cellophane with a ribbon tie but I either way they are adorable!!
