30 minute craft

Do you have these items available?  Wooden clothes pegs, scrapbook paper, magnets, ModPodge, strong glue.

If you do, and also have 30 minutes of free time, you can make some Magnetic Pegs for your refrigerator.

Just cut your scrapbook paper to fit the top of the pegs (mine were 3/8" wide x 3" long)

Glue to top of peg.  I used ModPodge however you could use PVA glue. When dry, trim to size. I then applied another coat of ModPodge to the top of the paper.

Using a strong glue, glue the magnet to the back of the peg.  Use a strong magnet as you want to be able to clip paper, notes, photos etc into the peg.

For gift giving, and presentation, I glued a piece of the same scrapbook paper I used on the pegs to the bottom of a piece of card stock and then clipped the pegs on the top.

Four new gifts, all packed up in cellophane in under 30 minutes.  You have to love that!
