Breaking in the Mod Podge

After discovering so many incredible blogs and seeing the amazing things Mod Podge can do, I asked my husband for some for Christmas and just barely broke it in last night. It was so much fun! My brain is already constantly thinking of what else I can Mod Podge!

I decided to keep it simple for my first time so I made some number magnets for K. He's always saying it's 6:54 PM for whatever reason, so now we can use these to teach him numbers and read digital clocks properly.
I took some magnets like the ones that come on the front of phone books...the floppy ones that usually get thrown away and cut them into 1 3/4" blocks.

I printed out the numbers 0-9 backwards so that when I cut them out, any ink that I didn't cut off would be on the back and not seen on the finished product. I used the rest of the paper to cut to the size of the magnets and Mod Podged those on. Once dry, I Mod Podged the numbers on, and when that was dry I covered the whole front with a layer of Mod Podge.
I rounded the corners so that they'll hopefully last longer and stuck em on the fridge before I went to bed. I then had the joy of peeling all the dry Mod Podge off my hands and feeling like I was in elementary school again, peeling Elmer's glue off my fingers after art projects.
K noticed the new addition to our fridge first thing this morning and was so excited that all of my grumpiness at being woken up by 2 screaming boys at 6:14 AM evaporated and my day started going so much better. Thank you Mod Podge!
