Now my hubby is a little picky about what goes on our fridge. He doesn't want it to get too cluttered and neither do I (but I do love magnets and I have a lot of them...). I decided to make a cute folder to keep my grocery list in that would look pretty. This is what I did:
- Pretty paper of your choice
- Cheap paper folder
- Stick on alphabet letters
- Sewing machine (optional)
|I forgot to take pictures as I went along...oops|
Step Two: Cut out the correct size of pretty paper you want. I put some in the back of the folder and on the front flap. (I want my kitchen colors to be blue and yellow someday so I choose yellow paper and a blue folder)
Step Three: Place the paper on the folder the way you want it. There are several ways you can attach the paper to the folder: tape, glue, or even a sewing machine. I decided to go this route because I thought a zig-zag pattern would look really nice and a bit more professional than glue or tape. If you prefer not to use a sewing machine there are plenty of other ways to get a more polished look like a fabric boarder.
* If using a sewing machine be sure to practice on some scraps first and be sure to put tape over where you being and end on the back of the folder so the thread does not come loose.

Step Four: Once you place the paper one the folder attach the flap to the front to slide your list in.
Step Five: Glue your magnets to the back of the folder (I used a roll of magnets that you could just unroll, cut, and were sticky on the back so you could just stick them to whatever...super easy!)
Step Six: Attach you letters wherever you like and admire your handy work!
