Magnetic Fridge Faces

Your friends and family will feel mysteriously attracted to the magnetic fridge faces that you make for them.

What You'll Need:

  • Pictures of your family and friends
  • Glue
  • Empty cereal box
  • Scissors
  • Clear adhesive vinyl
  • Small magnet strips

Step 1: Glue photos to the backside of an unfolded, empty cereal box. Let dry.

Step 2: Cut photos or tightly trimmed images of people out of the cardboard. Cover the fronts and backs of the photos with clear adhesive vinyl.

Step 3: Glue magnet strips to the backs of the photos.

Use these steps to make a whole set of your friends or family members, and arrange them in wacky ways. You could make separate, goofy speech balloons for everyone, too. This could make a nice gift for your grandparents.
