Meg Pickard says:

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.

Pétursey says:

I've ordered my magnetic tape !!!

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

buy magnetic paint (check out www.lazyboneuk.com/store/pro256.html) and then you can stick your Moognets EVERYWHERE !

>>> 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 !!!!

FlyButtafly says:

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. :)

Elfleda says:

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.

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 -

sunshinecity - tell your fiance he can find it at Michaels
www.michaels.com - 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 says:

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...

matildaben says:

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.

Reinhilde says:

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: www.xyron.com - email: europe@xyron.com

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...

If not I'll be sending my fiance to Michael's! (Funny too... his name is Michael!)

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 :-)
