It was my friend's birthday the other week, and even though she told everyone not to get her something, I knew I had to make her something to show her how much I love having her as my Bio-Buddy... so (inspired by the cell pillow posted here of Craftster quite a while ago) I made these "Create-a-Cell" magnets:

Here are all the magnets (minus a lysosome that went walk-a-bouts and a vacuole that I hadn't made yet):


This is what they look like assembled into a cell (with viruses around the outside):


This is the outside of the card which I put all the magnets in:


And the magnets inside of the card, with info on each organelle:


She absolutely loved it, and we ended up getting weird looks and comments about having to be biologists to appreciate things like this from our non-Biology friends, which made it even more great. Hooray for Bio-Geeks!!  Grin

Great idea!  I'd love to have a creative buddy like you, come my next birthday.  Perhaps with a subject matter more suited to myself, but heck, even the cell gave me warm flashbacks of the days when I got straight A's in biology.

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone!

I found the image on google and then copied the cell outline and some other bits and peices, so it's probably very likely that you have the same picture!
