ALF magnets

ALF magnets

One of the birthday gifts I received was an unopened package of ALF trading cards a friend had picked up at a thrift store. It was a funny gift, but after opening them—ingesting the gum, YEARGH—I wondered what to do with them. I searched around for some magnetic sheets and found this package of 12 8.5×11″ sheets to be the best deal. They’re $10 (unfortunately $17 after shipping). I stuck the cards to the adhesive backing and trimmed them out with a hobby knife. It was really easy to work with and I think they’ll hold up great. I’m now looking around the apartment for other things to make fridge magnets out of; I found my Nevada license, old business cards, and maybe I’ll pick out some Magic cards.

    Yes, it was seriously, “hahaha I’m eating the gum and it’s breaking into terrible pink shards.” But then it dissolved into this horrible pink powder. Honestly, I’ve eaten terrible trading card gum before but this new powder stage was a step beyond.
