Friends and family fridge magnets.
Sticky magnetic tape. It may not look like much but my word, the exciting possibilities.
At the same time, my older daughter's confidence in - and enjoyment of - drawing has noticeably increased of late. We decided to draw some pictures of ourselves and some friends and one thing lead to another. Before you could say Lesley Judd I was reaching for some sticky back plastic and the magnetic tape and these were born.
Just draw straight onto card, or back the paper with card. Cover with sticky back plastic, stick a smallish piece of the magnetic tape to the back and you have yourself a bespoke fridge magnet.

Halfway through the drawing process it was decreed that this was in fact a family of aliens, hence the many red arms and legs.
