Introduction: DESK TOP MAGNET/ MESSAGE / MEMO/ BOARD

About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

I finally came up with a cool idea for the office contest.  A lot of people like to use small magnets and sometimes we don't have a place to stick them,  so here is a good way to use magnets away from home.  You also re-use stuff like an old sock, Cd case, buttons, cloth, cards, calendar pages, and an old Cd's. This is a creative way to store Sugru,  which is practical.  It is a great emergency product to have on hand,  especially at the office! 

Step 1: WHAT YOU WILL NEED.

  • Empty Cd case. ( You need a good one. ) One with a clear plastic cover.
  • Cd.
  • Dry erase marker.
  • Magnets, maybe a couple of ones with a sticky back.  
  • Sock or part of a sock, fabric.
  • 3 5X8 tin shingles (roof flashing.)
  • Buttons (optional.  )
  • Scissors.
  • Glue( optional. ) Sugru
  • Family photo, calendar page or cards.  
  • Small magnetic frame. ( optional.) 

Step 2: INSERT FLASHING.

Insert the flashing by opening the Cd case with the back toward you.  
Then insert the flashing on the inside ( right side ) where the tabs are or glue it in there.


Step 3: ADD CLEANING CLOTH.

Decorate the inside by using a calendar page all the way across the case and cut a hole so the Cd will slip over the knob.  

Step 4: INSERT Cd

Insert the Cd.
Cut the fabric or sock and slip under the tab.  

Step 5: Front

Add a ( magnet with a sticky back.  ) to the pen and stick it to the front cover.
Add additional magnets.
Add Sugru.
Family pics?
Anything to personalize it.  

Step 6: CLOSING

You can leave it open on your desk or lay it flat on your desk.
This would make a nice gift for someone at the office.
Thanks for viewing my instructable and have a nice day at the office.
