Bird Magnets! Fun and Easy!

 Memory Making Day!

I found this at Gordostyle !Take a trip over to her blog, you’ll love it! I think this may be fun for kids to do but just to be honest…I had fun making these Little Birds!

(She had them standing which is adorable, but I’m always looking for new and amazing ways to pimp out my fridge so I made them magnets!)

Find some fun paper. You can simply buy a piece or two!little-paper-bird-you-need-this

You’ll need some colorful paperclips, tape, glue (I used good old Elmers white glue, but you could use a glue stick), scissors, and a matching colored pencil or watercolored pencil to outline Little Bird!

 

I enlarged the picture of the bird and traced it right on my laptop screen!

 

I used pretty paper for the front of Little Bird and heavier cardstock color coordinating paper on Little Bird’s back!

 

Make Little Bird’s little feet from paperclips and tape them to the inside back before you glue the two pieces together!

 

Outline Little Bird lightly in a coordinating color! If you have watercolored pencils you can use a Q-tip and kinda soften the lines.

Put on a fun sticker and put the magnet on the back and let Little Bird start cheering up your fridge!birds-on-fridge2

 You know I think these would make adorable party favors! ~TTFN Peeps~
