So I am absolutely baffled as to why we still get sent multiple yellow pages every year. It seems like such a waste of paper and a really outdated way to look up a dentist. The only redeeming quality is the couple of advertisement magnets that come with them. I found an idea on a wonderfully creative friends blog about how to give this magnets a new look. For great DIY ideas check out her blog at www.akateday.blogspot.com
This is really so very easy! Gather all those magnets and apply a thin layer of magical Mod Podge using a paint brush. Apply your favourite paper (cut a little large that the magnet)....you can get as creative here as your little heart desires! I just used some regular scrap booking paper and paper from a pretty envelope, but you could use tissue paper, ribbon or post cards (just make sure its not heavier than your magnet will support)!
Once the paper is applied to all the magnets, trim away the extra paper from around the magnets. Apply a layer of mod podge to the top of your paper and allow to dry. Once they are just about dry, take the a fore mentioned phone book and set them on the magnets for about 1/2 hour. This is just to make SURE that paper is firmly in place and the edges won't start to roll up.
Now my fav. part....time to put them on your fridge and admire your work.....
This is a fun and easy craft that does not take very long and is really practical! Great one for kids to do too!
