I decided to make little mini fridge calendars this year. I used 4 inch acrylic cirlces from the kits 2 remember store for the base of these. But for the magnet on the back I have taken the magnets that come on the front of the new phone books and cut them into strips. I have tons of these around from when Patrick was little. They were the perfect size for him to play with and I didn't have to worry about him swallowing them...lol. They are 4 inch squares, I have even used them for my calendar base in the past. They use to be alot thicker than the ones we have received the past few years.
Here are the magnets I used...
I have ordered little index print size photos of each of the families. I got some great shots of each individual family last year so I am going to use those. I try to match them to their decor or personalities if possible. It makes it more personal rather than mass produced.
For the calender pages I just looked online for some printable pages. I found mine HERE I cropped the top portion off since they had images at the top. And printed them out at wallet size.
I punched holes and added brads to hold the pages together and on the acrylic. But I have also run a line of hot glue across the top to hold the pages together before. It works great.This one is actually for a single cousin so I got to use lots of bling on this one.
