Magnetic Panels

This was a super easy project, but I am happy with the results.  I wanted a way to get embellishments out of a drawer, but I didn’t want to use valuable shelf space for them.  I have seen magnetic spice tins used for this purpose, but everywhere that I found them online, they were really expensive.  After some research, I found a wholesaler online, Papermart.  I bought some of the 1 oz deep and the 2 oz deep tins.  I bought magnets on eBay to attach to the backs.  So now I had my tins to fill with buttons, brads, eyelets, and other doo-dads.  At first I thought I’d just buy a magnetic white board to mount them on, but that’s not very pretty.  After some research I found MagPanels.com who sells plain magnetic panels in several sizes.  I bought 8×10 panels and simply covered them in scrapbook paper and popped them into inexpensive white frames from Michael’s.
