Make your refrigerator personalized with your own crappy magnets.

Here's the deal- after seeing the all the magnet Instructibles,
and having magnets
and a refrigerator
and crap to go on it,
I figured why not make and add my own magnets.
I had leftover business card magnet blanks.
These are the type with a removable paper back with a sticky side for attaching a business card.
As I am working on ways to become more organized, I was throwing things away .
Some of these items were perfect for being re purposed for refer magnets.
I choose some goof-ball things that mean something to me.
So it makes sense to use things that means something to you as well.

Your Materials:
1. Crap- to serve as Magnets. If your stuff is more interesting, your magnets will be more interesting.
2. Magnets different types and / or sizes.
3. Refrigerator
4. Glue- hot glue or some other suitable sticky stuff.

Step 2: CheapGeek- Make Magnet Refrigerator Art.

Take your items and make art.

The item weight should not exceed the stickiness of the sticky stuff -or- the strength of the magnet
used to attach it to the refrigerator.

After you've stuck the magnets to the crap you've selected as refrigerator art,
stick them to the refrigerator.
Good way to reset your memory stick on your digital cameras and casette tape.

Yeah- I know- I like to do the name thing. It originally started as a way to get extra credit in a college class I was taking. If you were on the Internet and could be found by search engines, you would receive "X" amount of points. You're right a lot of people do this. It's not original by any means..Plus it gives me an excuse to put my Rebel XT DSLR to use.

There is no real reason for you to put your name in the front of the Instructable, but anyways, aside from that, most people do this anyways, if they have something they want to put on the fridge. Even so, you did actually document it,... not bad...
