Dishwasher Magnets

Hi everyone!  Today I have dishwasher magnets to show you.  No one in our house can figure out if the dishwasher is clean or dirty.  Half the time, they don't bother putting their dishes in anyway--LOL!  We've been using a magnetic chip clip with a ratty piece of paper that I wrote clean on to let everyone know it's time to empty.  My husband said before Christmas that I need to use my Cricut and make something nicer.  So I finally did yesterday (Snow Day #2).

Here are the details:
  • From My Kitchen Cartridge--Ovals cut at 3 1/2 inches; Silverware cut at 1 3/4 inches
  • Alphalicious letters cut at 2 1/4 inches
  • 5 x 8 inch Adhesive Magnetic Sheeting (I used two of these)
  • TCP Studio So Delish Toast & Pear Delight Patterned paper
  • Bazzill Basics Paper in Suede Brown Medium and Caribbean Breeze
  • Zip Dry Glue
I cut the magnet material out with the Deep Blade x's 4.  Then I cut the patterned paper out from the same cut and just stuck it on since the magnetic was adhesive.  I used the Zip Dry Glue to stick everything on for a better hold.

It was super easy and I can't wait to cut more magnets out for decorations!!  That's after we are not snowed/iced in and I can go to the store again--LOL!

Don't forget that My Pink Stamper is having a blog hop this Friday night at 9pm Central --that's 10pm Eastern, 8pm Mountain, 7pm Pacific.  This is her first monthly hop introducing her new My Pink Designers so make sure to hop along!!
