i too, was inspired to create my own set after i gave one to a friend. who can resist magnetic potery that says:


(the one that is 'flashed' out says "drama queen")

heh heh, i also made a box for him to use them in... i painted a box and put a piece of metal sheet in the top and then covered it with black paper.

this is the bottom of the box


and this is the top (i lettered his name in silver where the black boxes are)

i got mine at both joann fabrics and michael's craft store. it was cheaper at joann's... i think 5.99 for 25 meters, which is plenty for a bucnh of magnets :-D (my problem was finding magazines! we never have any at my house!)

JoJo, thank you so much for the link.  I love the Johnny Depp paper doll.  I'm printing it out as we speak. Cheesy

If you wanted these to be really sturdy, couldn't you get a sheet of words laminated (the flexible kind) and then glue it to magnet backing?

Hey! I think its HP that makes "magnetic paper..." Im not really sure what it is called...but its a thin sheet of magnet that you can run right through your printer so you can make your own personalized poetry. I also use it to make pic frames for my fridge, etc.

Avery makes the best ones (Magnet paper).. Cheapest i've found was at buy.com

Correction 25/10: Magnetvalley is absolutely the alltime cheapest (and it is 25 sheets !!!)

I've made magnetic poetry as presents a couple times.  I did the print out method.  one comment about it...  magnetic printer paper is thin, so it doesn't stick quite as well/strongly as magnet strips, so just keep that in mind.  other than that, it's very cool, especially if you print them out in different, fun colors for different words!

 Hello Everybody!

Just wondering if anyone here on the forum is still using RQ Words as a creative tool for making your own magnets?
