Here is another very quick and crafty idea....
Buttons are not JUST for sewing ya know!
BUTTON FRIDGE MAGNETs
The non-quick bit of this idea is the actual 'searching for' magnets.
Do not be tempted to use any ole magnet that you come across... there is nothing as frustrating as making your own fridge magnet - then discovering the magnet has no strength and everything falls off your fridge. I hate that.
I *think* i got mine from Staples - and maybe even from Habitat some years ago... a few are quite deep but some are flat - it doesn't matter really. But they were really strong so i was happy to use them.
Searching for buttons... well that is the easy bit!
you either have some in a pot somewhere (the bigger the better! the more dramatic effect)
or you can buy some from me: http://bigfish.etsy.com/
or you can rummage ebay / carboot / thrift for some unusual oldies.
All i did was to GLUE mine with a super strong glue.
I never recommend Super-Glue as it has volatile properties and you are never sure when the stickiness will give.
You can use an Araldite i think, or a glue gun.
I used Gold Hi-Tack, my most favourite glue of all time.
leave them to dry for 24 - 48hrs. Don't be impatient...
