Box Top Fridge holder by Melissa

Hi ya everyone! Melissa here today to share a little project and tutorial. I created a fun little box to hold box tops for education in for my daughter’s school. We throw these in an envelope and often forget about them so I wanted something to hang on the fridge that would hold them!

I actually got the idea from a little magnet box at the dollar store. It was a bit bigger and I was afraid that the magnet would not be strong enough, so I decided to create my own. My ever so sweet hubby came up with the idea to hold the box tops! Here are the step by step instructions.

Colored image from Some Odd GirlSchool Mae
8 x 12 piece of cardstock
3 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of same colored cardstock as above
3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ patterned paper (plaid above)
3 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ patterned paper (polkadots above)
Paper trimmer
Score Board

Next, follow these simple instructions:

Once you score on both side you should have something that looks like this!

Adhere magnets with glue and dry.

Add patterned paper and image and hang on fridge!!!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
