Eyelets, Ribbon, Paper - Oh My!

I am one of fifteen members of a blog group called “Eyelets, Ribbon, Paper – Oh My”. When the group was formed, we decided to take turns issuing challenges. Our first challenge was to recycle something you normally throw away. I used the bottom of a juice can to make a refrigerator magnet. I hot glued magnets to the lid to keep them in place and then sandwiched the foam, lid, and designer paper together with hot glue. To make use of the can, I cut the top off and placed the cylinder over a newly planted lily bulb to protect it from hungry bunnies.
I am pleased with my results but my entry pales compared to those submitted by my fellow bloggers. I encourage you to visit Jax Bean Stalks listed on the right of my blog and see the other entries.


  1. I love this wonderful project!! Such a pretty way to keep this awesome prayer close at hand!! Beautiful work, Tammy!!

    Great use of the rest of that can, too!! Fabulous job of recycling!!

  2. What a lovely fridge magnet...a very creative use of a can!

  3. I think this is just great! I'm always in need of another magnet and this would just be perfect.

  4. Tammy - this magenet idea is great! Did you do anything to make the edges not sharp? I LOVE IT! Do you care if I steal this idea for family?? Love it!
