Dishwasher Magnet

This little magnet is a great solution for your dishwasher to let your family know if the dishes inside are clean or dirty.  Just flip the magnet accordingly.

A Magnet
PowerPoint Knowledge
Scanner (Optional)
Laminating Machine
Lamination Pouches
Double-Sided Adhesive Tape

Prepare the magnet using PowerPoint on your computer.  Since I used a 2" x 3-1/2"  promotional magnet from our fridge, I made a 2" x 3-1/2" box on the page and put a line halfway through it.  Make two text boxes and picked your favorite fonts for "Clean" and "Dirty" and add a shadow.  Flip one around using the green rotating lever attached to the text box.  Now, you can use a background that you have stored on your computer or scan paper/material that has a design that you like.  Shrink or crop it down to fit in each box and send the image to the back.

When you are happy with the design of your magnet, print it and cut it out.  Place it in a lamination pouch and send it through your lamination machine.  Cut again along the outline and adhere it to your magnet using double-sided tape.

Leave a comment telling me what other projects you would like to see on Mary's Makings and be a "follower" of the blog and I will send you one of these magnets!
