Need something to hold up your schedule, important papers, or just pictures of friends in your locker? Here's a quick, inexpensive idea for making your own decorative locker magnets using fabric scraps.

materials needed:
1. button magnets with adhesive backs  - I found mine at WalMart for less than $2 for 18
2. fabric scraps - I had these on hand, leftovers from sewing projects. If you don't have any, ask a friend that sews or check freecycle!
3. scissors

Step 1: Placement test

Take your magnet (DO NOT remove the backing quite yet!) and test it behind the fabric to see what placement would look best.

Cute! You could use fray check or even glue around the edges to keep them from fraying.
