"Oink, Oink!" Magnets

Would you like to have a cute magnet like this on your fridge? What am
 I saying, of course you do! But first, you'll have to make it...and here's how:

Animal Farm Pig Magnets
created by Snacking Squirrel

1. A regular craft-sized piece of pink foam paper
2. An additional black piece of foam paper (optional)
4. Scissors
5. Pair of googly-eyes

The 1st, front body, goes over the 2nd piece, which then is topped by piece 3

And "Voila!"

The fun part comes next when 2 small googly eyes 
are glued on to our pink foam pig just above the 'snout' 

The snout needs just one more thing...

...gluing on 2 black nostrils cut out of black foam paper

After drying for a couple hours I couldn't wait any longer decided to add the magnetic backing. I used CraftMedley's Photo Magnetic Sheet, for just $1.25 at A Buck Or Two

First measure and cut out a square piece of the mag

Then peel back the paper backing

And gently stick on to the backside of our piggy, hehe

Wait overnight, or about 7-8 hours, before adding the 
magnetic back to the pig, or even before adding the googly eyes
...this would ensure proper adhesion of the sticker to the foam

Then slap that baby on the fridge and showcase your cuteness for the world to see :)

Happy Oinking!
