Wanting to put together some easy but useful gifts for my mom friends I started digging through my various craft supplies and found some of those magnets that came on various phonebooks. I already have a can of chalkboard paint that I had gotten this summer at Walmart. I used a foam brush to paint the magnets and let dry. A very easy and inexpensive gift, that I think (hope) will be useful. I will be wrapping these up with a couple other homemade things.
