This post goes out to whoever does the dishes at your house. After this simple craft you will never hear the words, “Are these dishes clean or dirty?” again! No lies, this is 100% guaranteed. Do you know what’s even better? This craft is so easy, fast, and cheap to make! You might even be done making it before the dirty dishes pile up. And that is fast.
Here is what you will need:
3. Mod Podge
4. Sponge brush
5. Adhesive magnetic sheets
6. Card stock
7. Letter stickers (not shown above since I am indecisive sometimes)
After picking your card stock (I used white and printed vintage illustrations on them), simply trace a circle around the part you will use and cut.
Now trace the same circle on the back of the magnet and cut. Peel off the backing on the adhesive magnet and apply your card stock. Don’t you love adhesives? No drying time or waiting around, just instantly stuck together!
Next place your letter stickers on the magnets to clarify whether the dishes will be clean or dirty. I have not joined the legions of women who own a Silhouette, so I used some stickers. Now I know what to ask for this Christmas :).
Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge onto your magnets to add texture and to ensure the letters stay put. Almost done! Are you still winning the race against the dirty dishes?
Ta da! Aren’t they cute?! With Mother’s Day coming up, you could make these fun and useful magnets and slip them in the card for your Mom. I am giving my magnets to my Mom for sure! She rinses her dishes so spotlessly clean before they go into the dishwasher that my Dad can never tell whether they are, “Clean or Dirty?” So, Happy Mother’s Day Mom and problem solved :).
