DIY CHIPBOARD BUTTON MAGNETS.in craft, diy
Here's a super quick way to dress up your fridge or noticeboard. These diy chipboard button magnets can be made in next to no time plus they're as pretty as they are practical.
These chipboard buttons are another of my crafting supplies I've been holding onto instead of using. So in an effort not to let my supplies go to waste I decided to turn them into these cute magnets instead. After all, it's much more fun to be able to look at these buttons on the noticeboard above my desk rather than let them sit in a drawer unused.

1. Cut the edges off your magnetic frames and remove the clear plastic front.
2. Pop out your chosen chipboard shapes (I used these) and peel the backing off.
3. Stick them down onto the front of your magnetic strip.
4. Use a craft knife to cut out your chipboard shapes. I found it easier to cut out the buttons by making lots of smaller cuts rather than trying to cut them out all at once.
The magnets are strong enough to hold a photo or postcard but if want to hold anything more I'd suggest using some extra strong magnets like these instead. Stick the chipboard down onto some paper, cut out and then glue a couple of the super strong mini magnets to the back.
And there you are, adorable diy button magnets to add a little fun to your fridge or noticeboard.
P.S. If you fancy having a go at making your own origami bows like in the photo above you can find that tutorial here.
