For my open house earlier this month, I put together tack and magnet box inserts.
For the open house, I did a freebie basket with items that were all $5 or less. Everyone got to take one. It made more sense to have small magnet cards with 1-2 magnets each than to package sets that small in those boxes.
Edi created for me for my earring cards. Instead of punching earring holes, I glued magnets. For the large cards, I printed sheet music from a legal download source on card stock. Note: If you are going to cut your own cards, please use some sort of paper cutter. It will look much more professional than a scissors job will.
I used the cheap magnet rolls that you can buy at any craft store. I don't recommend using them for glass or button magnets, but they work really well for the cards. Some people also use tiny washers for their cards. Magnets rolls are cheaper, but washers are obviously very inexpensive, too.
I use neodymium magnets for all my glass magnets so they held just fine in a bowl with my other freebies. In the future and/or for gift purposes, I would like to make something like this for my little magnet squares.
here. It would be super easy to create a top with your business logo or create a cardboard backing for your business card or some sort of business logo sticker.
As I've mentioned before, the freebie bowl was a hit. I wouldn't do this at larger shows, but it's great for open houses. This would also be a great favor option for baby showers, wedding showers, birthday parties, or even wedding receptions.
I used the same small cards for my freebie button earrings, hair pins, and rings, too. I'm planning to put a post together about my entire freebie basket later this month or early next month.
