I honestly think this post should be named 'whose silly idea was this?' but as I used scrabble letters, well I will stick with that.
Yesterday I finally made up some magnetic letters using crafty scrabble tiles that I had purchased, yet again, off that wonderful place full of good things, ebay. The finally part is because I probably bought these around 6 months ago but making them has been shoved to the back so here goes.
What you need:
First grab a handy bag of scrabble tiles,
Some awesome magnetic tape, or any other form of magnet you can get you hands on and some PVA or wood glue if you need stickiness or don't trust the stickiness of the tape (which I don't after previous experiences).
Now what to do:
1. Apply PVA glue to the back of the scrabble pieces.
2. Stick on a piece of magnet or magnetic tape
3. Do it over and over and over again (hence the whose idea was this comment)
4. Let them dry.
Then taa daa there you have it, magnetic letters.
Some ideas for how we are going to use them coming soon (just as soon as we get around to it).
