When I saw the Fridge Magnet Contest, I thought to myself, "There's something I can do!" Sweet and simple. I immediately thought of Tetranitrate's awesome Tetris Ice Cubes. Tetris would make some great fridge magnets!

Step 1: Find some stuff!

So you are probably thinking to yourself about now, "Hey, didn't distortedlabs just do this???"
That is absolutely right. I had a hard time finding magnets, so give me a break. For the record, I found them in Ace Hardware, near the hammers (???).

Here's what you'll need:
Some posterboard (or some other kind of stiff backing)
A roll of gasket cork (or something similar)
Hot glue gun
Scissors
A ruler
Some markers or paint
Magnets!

As you may have noticed, I'm pretty ambiguous here in the materials. This stuff works, but you might find something better. As for the magnets, I found a roll of adhesive magnet, which works nicely.
or make them one block and play a game of fridge tetris with your friends and every line cleared you just take them off :) im a geunus
WOW, ok, Please, give me an idea where I can find the magnets! are stickers? stripes? Thank you erik
I got all the materials at the hardware store. You might want to ask an employee, as most of this stuff is kind of obscure in a hardware store. The magnet comes in a roll, one side is sticky. My other option, which I didn't wind up using as I found the magnet tape was to go to the dollar store, buy a bunch of crappy magnets, and rip the fronts off of them to get at the plain magnet.
lmao if tetris becomes the ew k'nex of instructables!
Next up -- my totally rad tetris gun! you'll need two L shapes, a Z shape, and it fires rectangles heh
;D
Glad to be help out with the inspiration.
Me fail English? Thats unpossible.
I'm expecting some of these for Christmas -- but I want the right colors and shapes - don't skimp on the posterboard!
Wow, people are totally taking off on the Tetris Theme :) I'm not complaining -- I think it's cool )
Great idea with the cork board on top of the magnets. I guess if they were thick enough you could use a couple push pins and double up on the holding factor of the magnet.
Oooo, I like that. I was thinking about doing multiple layers, but I was concerned it wouldn't come out looking as nice. Really ideally it would be done with wood blocks like Tetranitrate's mold positive.
