Remember this post on repurposing? This is a little different twist on the idea that was suggested to use as a photo holder from High Desert Diva.
I turned vintage buttons into magnets, and with the really strong magnets I used they REALLY hold! (You can even toss them at it and it will stick-I like to play.)
Now, it can hold messages, photos, memos, business cards, or little pieces of art like the ACEO that I collaged. They've each been sprayed with coats of acrylic finish.
I have one on my desk that I love with big off white vintage button magnets. I just listed these here in Etsy.
