Fridge poetry set with a ransom note vibe.

The idea came from Modio's comment on this Instructable.

Step 1: Getting Started

You will need:

Sheet magnets - I only used less than one sheet for all these words

Magazines and catalogues (that you're willing to cut up) - Sure, I could have printed the words, but I wanted the various fonts, colors, sizes, backgrounds, etc.

Scissors - Don't cut yourself.

Glue stick - Don't glue yourself.

A fridge - Don't chill yourself.

Step 2: Cut, Glue, Repeat...

Not much to it, though I did make one discovery. It's much easier to put the glue on the magnet and glue down a whole line of text, then cut them into individual words. I started out gluing individual words, but that way lies madness.

Step 3: Slap Em on a Fridge!

I decided to magnetize a couple of the Instructables stickers I got for having my Flash Drive Mini featured.

The only problem with this way of doing a set of words is that it's hard to find any dirty words (at least with the magazines I have).
well that's awesome .. just awesome .. you made my day

I used one of those free magnetic promotional calendars from my car insurance company. They're literally just a magnetic sheet with a sticker of a calendar on top.
I got them at Staples for something like $7 for five sheets... only used less than one sheet, though.
