You've probably heard by now that magnetic photo albums aren't a good place for your treasured photos. Magnetic albums are those albums or binders with cardboard pages striped with lightly tacky adhesive and acetate overlays. Just because you shouldn't put heirloom photos in them doesn't mean you have to throw out those albums - especially if you like the cover design or the convenience of the 3 ring binder feature. Here are ways to make good use of those magnetic albums.
Magnetic photo albums are an organizational godsend for teachers, Moms, and everyone else who likes to decorate windows with seasonal vinyl clings. You don't even have to peel back the acetate; just stick the cling on top of the page. Your decorations stay flat and clean, and are easy to find.
Collect all those recipe clippings and print-outs and store them in a magnetic album. An album filled with copies of family recipes makes a terrific gift. You can even include copied photos (not originals) of the cooks, and of family members stuffing their faces.
Magnetic albums can serve as a great place to store receipts, appraisals, and lists of valuables for insurance purposes. Keep the album in a safety deposit box at your bank, as a back-up for the information you've scanned into your computer.
If you've ever gone to the craft store and bought a rubber stamp or paper punch only to later realize you already had the exact same design at home, you might wish you could carry your collection with you. Well, you can. Stamp the images of your rubber stamps, punch out paper, and list the other crafting supplies you have. Arrange them in the magnetic album and keep it in the trunk of your car. Next time you head to the craft store, take it in so you can consult it before buying.
Keep paint chips and fabric swatches, organized by room, in a magnetic album. When you are out at the discount store or the boutique and find an awesome deal on throw pillows or other designer items, you can compare the patterns and colors to make sure that great deal will look great in your home. Keep your designer album in the trunk of your car.
Very creative, thank you.
Great list of uses for the magnetic photo album.
I've used magnetic photo albums for recipes for years and must have 20 of the things. Can you do an article about top five ways to declutter magnetic photo albums please?
Bossy, you are not gonna believe this but we must be linked. Late Friday night, that would be Dec. 3 (look at the date of this article) I had a stroke of genius and put all my family recipes in an old photo binder. This is the first time I am seeing this article. Amazing! Your ideas are marvelous and have got my creative juices flowing.
