Fridge Moognets

Meg Pickard 12:34am, 20 October 2006
I liked my Moo cards so much I didn't want to give them away. So I ordered an extra set and whipped up some nifty fridge Moognets.

Moognets - 7: Cool

Full instructions in this set.

I've ordered my magnetic tape !!!

Also a suggestion.... sticking the Moognets on the fridge is so passé...

buy magnetic paint (check out and then you can stick your Moognets EVERYWHERE !

Moognets are tape arrived quick... so my moognets are stuck to the magnetic paint on my toilet door !!

Thanks to megpickard for a cool idea !!!!!!

I used the half-inch tape -- two strips cover the back -- and everyone loves them! Planning to 'gift' some for Christmas.

>>> Note to those using Magnetic Paint <<<<

1. When painting paint one layer in one direction
2. Do a 2nd layer in the other direction
3. Then paint over with at least 2 coats of gloss or emulsion paint to hide the dark grey of the magnetic paint
4. Whoops...should be in 1st place.. SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE and then STIR, STIR and STIR again the magnetic paint before using !!!!

Fridge MOOgnets

This is such a great idea. I've had magnetic tape sitting around here somewhere that I was going to use to make magnets as presents using some other materials, but moognets would be perfect.

I'm just going crazy now trying to find where the magnetic strip is hiding!! (I bet I've looked at it a few times and just not seen it... argh.)

Anyway, I'll probably order another 100 pack just for making moognets for Christmas gifts. :)

I made mine, I couldn't fit them on the fridge so I got a cheap magnetic white board from Staples and put them on that. I think that I am going to make some more and get the bigger board and stick them all up.

BRILLIANT!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing your ideas!
WONDERFUL Idea! I did't think I could love my Moo Mini's even more, but I do now that they're magnets! I made them into little magnet "sets"! - here's a detail of my "Maui" set -

I'm having a hard time finding this magnetic tape everyon ementions!
I live in rome, Italy, and so far, I've been to 3 different stores and no one's even jeard of siuch a product! I felt like I was asking for Kryptonite or something!

Can any of you tell me where you found it and how much it costs? Please specify in what store in you're in the US. My fiance is American and is coming to visit in 2 weeks, I might get him to buy some for me.
Alos, any other European citizens find it??

I found the magnetic tape in a craft shop over here in the UK it cost about £3

sunshinecity - tell your fiance he can find it at Michaels - that's where I got mine - cost was about $3.50 USD - I think you might be able to purchase it on line via their website - but shipping could be expensive - be sure and tell him the right size to get! (of course, if he has one of your Moo cards, he can just use it to measure with!
Frau Haselmayer 12 years ago
Well, I don't think that this works out with the magentic paint because you would still need some magents.... the paint makes a wall or something else sticky for magents but not magentic itself...
aYnurTasman 12 years ago
ya, youR right. might be like that. I am also interested in -where to find the tape- in Germany.

I got the magnetic tape at Michael's and have been making magnet sets all week while I watch TV. The cards are the perfect size to fit on the edge of the bookshelf in my cubicle, which is the only metal thing within visual range, so now I have some pictures of my friends up in my cube, which is nice. Most of my friends are getting magnet sets for Xmas this year - we always keep presents small, so it's perfect. 12 years ago
Here's another shop in the UK that sells magnet tape in all shapes and sizes (pre cut or not)

I bought a roll of magnetic 'sticky back' roll (with dispenser, very handy!) in our local paper craft shop (Antwerpen/Belgium). The make is XYRON and costs € 5.40 for a roll of 7m and 19 mm wide.
Their site: - email:

edit: it's part of Esselte - and they have a page in Italian, but I don't speak or read Italian, so I hope you can find out more there...
sunshinecity 12 years ago
thanks for all you help guys!!
I'm going to try and browse a bit more, maybe in more specific stores, like arts and crafts shops....
If not I'll be sending my fiance to Michael's! (Funny too... his name is Michael!)

I had trouble finding the tape too, but I ended up ordering some A4 magnetic sheets of ebay and cutting them to size.

You guys rock! I knew about moo cards, I knew about magnetic paint, I learned about magnetic tape on another thread but I did NOT know that I could just buy a magnetic dry erase board at staples! I have a specific project that moognets and a dry erase board are exactly what I need to implement :-)

Hey people, I've been swapping Moo cards with my contacts for over a year now and I've been putting them on my fridge door, I got it full the other week so now I'm starting on the freezer door, I wonder how long that will take, it's twice the size, here is a photo of the fridge door with Moognets :-
