I'm thinking of making some for my penpal. It's so hard to find cool pictures that are small enough, though!

I made a bunch of these as Christmas presents and I just printed small clip art pictures of christmassy items out from my computer. It works better if you use thicker paper (24lb instead of 20lb-which is what most multi-purpose printer paper is) I had problems with the magnet showing through on lighter images. You could also glue a second piece of paper to the back too.

I second the woot for Righteous Babe- I am going to have to make my self some Ani magnets now!!!!

This is a very entertaining tutorial. I read it about three times just for fun.

I think I will make some thumbtacks in this manner.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Wow, thanks. I think all those ones are out of a Dr.'s Foster and Smith Aquarium catalogue, the flower ones are silk aquarium plants. Smiley  I made a bunch of chicken ones too from a Murray McMurray (chicken supplier) catalogue.   I have a request for Biance tacks, but finding tiny Biance's is a little more difficult. I don't think they make catalogues for her.  (Catalogues I think are easier, cuz they have small pictures off all the things they are selling, versus whole-page pictures in magazines)

Catalogue sounds funny in my head now.
