Mini Clothing Peg Magnetic Memo Holder Tutorial

I'm going to show you how to make these cute little magnetic memo holders, which were fun to make. :D
Here are the supplies you'll need:
Mini clothing peg
Scrap material
Modge Podge and brush
Craft glue
Scissors
Little decoration for peg
Sheet magnet (or your magnet of choice)

Cut a piece of material slightly bigger than necessary to cover the peg - you'll trim off the excess later:
Brush on some modge podge to one side of the peg:
Stick on the material:
Let it dry for a minute or so, then trim off the excess material with your scissors.  Apply another layer of modge podge over the material:
Let it dry completely for about 5 - 10 minutes, and then apply your little decoration with craft glue:
Let that dry properly, and then cut out a piece of sheet magnet the same size or slightly smaller than the side of the peg (it mustn't stick out over the sides), peel off the protective layer and stick it on the peg:
Finally, go find a note that you need to display on your fridge, and use your cute little peg to hold it in place! :D

I actually used to have some lady bug clothes pin memo holders, only yours are cuter. Mine were from Big Lots years ago, and were painted instead of fabric covered. They did have the same lady bug embellishment. I love your others, just wonderful, and great gift idea. Stopping over from A Little Lovely's
