I made these for the recent "inchie my theme" swap.  My partner's theme was the 1950s and I chose to focus on 50s diners.  I used retro scrapbooking paper for the background and graphics of retro food.  I researched diner lingo- the language waitstaff use to communicate orders to the cook.  Each phrase correlates with the food pic.  I found a fun "diner" font to type the phrases in.  I had so much fun with these, especially with the research of the lingo.  Apparently this type of lingo is unheard of outside of the United States and varies by region.  

Thanks for looking!

These are awesome! I love the lingo you used with them. (And I agree, they would make great magnets.)

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
