I've made this little set for a friend for her birthday. It's a coaster post-it note holder, a magnetic peg for popping on the fridge to hold a photo, lists, receipts etc and a paperclip bookmark. I used my new Papermania Rose Garden papers, ooohhh they are so pretty!

I would like to enter my set into the following challenges:
Papercutz - Challenge 37, Use a tag (there's one on the clip on the post-it note holder)


This is a pic of the magnet on the back of the peg. All you do to make these is to glue a strip of paper to one side of the peg and decorate further if you want to and stick a small magnet on the back. I get my magnets from ebay. I initially saw decorated pegs on Helen's fab blog.

The set all packaged up...
