My boyfriend loves meat.  It doesn't matter what kind.  If it comes from an animal, it is fair game (except organs, which he objects to).  I think he'd be the healthiest person alive if sausage was a food group.  He won't even try all of the turkey based products I am fond of or <gasp> a veggie burger.  So...I made some magnets for him...with his favorite thing on them...meat!  I apologize for the glare in the pics.  I was closeted in the dining room so my boyfriend couldn't see what I was taking pictures of.  The dining room doesn't have the best lighting options and my flash washed everything out too much.  Sad

Here's all of them together:

A closeup of the bacon (I love turkey bacon):

A closeup of a few different ones:

The USDA label:

And here they are all wrapped up in butcher's paper and twine:


I love them.  You can see an up close of a sausage link in one of the pics.  I think that'll be his favorite.

What do you think?

I love these stickers!  Did you know they make sausage tape?  I love that you wrapped them in butcher paper!

LMAO - It would be a hilarious present for a vegan (a tolerant vegan with a slightly warped sense of humor).  It was easy - just stickers and some magnet.  You stick them on and cut them all out.  It was easy except for the sausage.  You can do it with pictures and clippings too...all you need is glue.  Smiley 

Sausage tape?  Is it like stickers?

At a local music store...It's called Bull Moose if your are near Maine.  I already threw out the original packaging so I have no idea on the brand or anything.  I did a google search for meat stickers and I found them on the first hit (although the link I included was cheaper)... http://www.merch-bot.com/i-heart-meat-stickers.html

Hope that helps.  They also have bacon scent air freshener.  I don't think I could take the taunting aroma without the actual bacon there.   Cheesy
