Step 1: Materials

To make one brick, you will need one 2x2 or other 2x4 brick, 2 to 4 small magnets, and (optional of your magnets fit in snugly in step 2) a hot glue gun.

Step 2: Putting in the Magnets

Take your "empty" brick and stick 2 to 4 of your magnets in each corner, if you decide to put in 2  I have, make sure to put them across from them so the brick will hold more paperclips.

Step 3: Securing the Magnets (optional)

If your magnets fall out when you turn the brick upside down, simply add a little hot glue in each corner where there is a magnet.

Step 4: Add Paperclips!

If you add bricks onto a plate, you can make a nice decorative paperclip holder!  Thank you for viewing this instructable!  If you enjoyed it, please vote for it in the "Toy Building Block" contest!!
