This is project #8 from 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer.

    I really like the computer key magnets! That would be fun on a refrigerator, to leave a note!

    Make your own! You can learn how in 62 Projects to Make with A Dead Computer.

    But it wouldn't be as much fun as receiving a neatly little wrapped box containing letters in it, such as Happy Mother's Day or Hello! ;-)
