Making Wedding Pins into Refrigerator Magnets

So we’ve all had enough time to recover from the amazing wedding of my talented co-curator to his wonderful wife Annie (Farmer) Fox.  Not only were the Gocco Screen Printed Invitations spectacular, the event was absolutely awe-inspiring, but that’s not what you’re here to hear about.  As part of the festivities, there were pins with love messages on them which were great, but now what do I do with the damn things?

It takes 5 minutes and all you need are the magnets (assuming they’re the right size).  You dont even need glue!

Step 1: pull the pin out of the back of the wedding button.

Step 2: Allow magnet to slip into the back of the button.  No glue required… tricky magnets.
