DIY: Thrifty Paper Carnation Fridge Magnets

Tired of boring old fridge magnets? These carnation magnets are just the pop of spring color your kitchen or message board needs to ring in the season right. Grab any color tissue paper leftover from the holidays, the brighter the better, and start scrunching. In no time you’ll have a garden of thrifty-chic magnets at your fingertips!

Carnation Magnets

You Will Need

  • tissue paper

  • large flower or medallion paper punch
  • stapler

  • magnets

  • hot glue gun

Method

  • Fold tissue paper 4-5 times to create multiple layers, then punch out your shape with the paper punch.
  • Stack 12 pieces of tissue paper and staple them in the middle. Starting from the top, gently pull apart each layer and scrunch it toward the middle. Continue scrunching each layer until you get a fluffy flower (the bottom layer will be mostly flat).
  • Hot-glue the magnet to the underside of the flower.
