Upcycled Magnets!

This Friday, we’re getting ready for the Earth Day Festival this Saturday, April 20th at Mueller. In honor of that, I wanted to feature some of the prize magnets we’ll be giving away there, as well as some of the magnets we will be featuring at Maker Faire in May.

We took old magnets, stripped off the printed paper, and collaged art from books and other upcycled items. Our guiding theme was reuse, so all of the materials used in the decoration of the magnets were taken from soda bottles, old transparencies, nature, or damaged books. Here are some examples:
