Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. You know I love sharing thoughts, ideas and great finds on Sew Many Ways. Sharing is pretty much the reason why I blog.
Well, today I want to share something with you that someone shared with me!
At the end of March, I received an email from Dinah...a teacher in Indiana. She found a fabulous product in the hardware store that she uses in her classroom and wanted to share it with me. Dinah doesn't have a blog and has given me permission to share her tip with you!!
You know I love magnets and here is the best deal out there...
Vent Covers. Magnetic Vent Covers that is.
Magnetic vent covers are used to close off heating or a/c vents when you don't want the flow of air through that vent any more.
Vents are usually made of metal, so the magnetic sheets work great to seal it off.
What works great for me is that the magnetic sheets are BIG...8 inches x 15 inches and there are 3 of them in a package.
The BEST part is the package is about $4.50!!! You can find it in the heating section where they sell the air filters and vents.
See...3 big sheets just waiting for you to craft away.
The possibilities are endless with these sheets...sewing to hold you pins and needles, magnets for the refrigerator (Dinah used puzzles pieces glued to the magnetic sheets) and these would also work great to make magnetic games for kids in the car. They'll never lose the game pieces. Car bingo, matching games, checkers, tic tac toe etc. The best part is you can design and create the games yourself with your children.
Maybe you can add some of your ideas in the comments section too!!
Thank you so much, Dinah, for taking the time to email me with this wonderful idea...very much appreciated. Something from the hardware store turned crafty...Tool Time at it's best!!
Have a great Tuesday,
