Recycled Sticker Magnets

OK.  So I was supposed to post this the day before yesterday.  You forgive me, right?  LOL


Last week I ran into the inspiration for this project here.  I have done something similar in the past with pics of my grandma's parents, her, and her brother (as kids).  I actually used an outdated vehicle magnet advertisement.  But she inspired me by her use of stickers and ad magnets.  I was fortunate enough to have some really cool stickers from the many hospital visits with Brooke and Morgan.  Two of these were too perfect to pass up!


My sticker sheets and an ad magnet from the cover of our new phone book.


I peeled off the colorful plastic layer of the sticker so it wouldn't show thru the white parts of the stickers.  Then I stuck the stickers on.  The flame looks weird because it wasn't supposed to be a sticker, but I wanted it anyways!  ;)

I cut out the pieces with a xacto knife...and voila!  Please forgive my bad behavior!  I couldn't resist making the fireman look like a stripper!!!  LOL  And yes, the hydrant is on fire!  I think it is funny that they give him a cell phone, ax, and hydrant.  So I guess, in the event of a fire, he is supposed to beat it out since he has no hose?  And then call for help after he gets burned from it?  LOL  Well he's screwed because Hello Kitty stole his cell phone!  LOL

Which is your favorite?

Thats such a great idea :). I thought of you whilst wondering the shops today as we have all our halloween decorations out and I was looking at all the oraments and thought you'd love them :)

Thank you for linking to my sticker magnets. That was really nice of you. I have been wanting to do this with the fun stickers that we get like this (with the many components), but my 3 year old is to impatient with them. Before I know it, the whole thing is crumpled up in the car before we get home.

I love yours. The fireman cracks me up. Great job!

Awe thanks for thinking of me! :) You're so sweet! I've been going thru my decorations. Honestly, they're still kinda scattered in an organized mess! LOL

Do you have a posted pic of them? I'd love to see them! :)

Kristy: I'm glad these ones weren't too crumpled to use. They do have a few creases from little hands, but I don't think they are that noticeable. I spent a bit trying to flatten the creases with my nails. Thanks for the inspiration!

Like what you see? Let us know! :)
