I admit, I can be a total hack sometimes... but Phizzychick made these incredibly awesome silly word magnets   And I was bored (the husband was practicing guitar). And had some glue (more than some... while organizing my craft room, I found 4 huge bottles of Aleene's Tacky Glue, and three were UNOPENED! Score!). And a stack of magazines a mile high...

There are a couple of differences... I had small wooden discs, about an inch in diameter, so I painted the edges of the discs, and adhered the finished paper collages to the discs. The words are from magazines, ransom note style. And I did Mod Podge and Diamond Glaze the surfaces. Also... they are now necklaces, due to the husband's urging. If I want new fridge magnets, I'm going to have to get back to work....

Thank you, Phizzychick, for the inspiration!


I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

Thank you both! I have this huge bag of wood squares I've had on hand and no clue what to use them for. I also just bought a multipack of Aileens glue, and mod podge. I think I will make them into tiny magnets using your technique, and Phyzzie's quirky words idea. Coolness!
