How to make magnets with photos

Close friends and family tend to hang out in the kitchen a lot. Take the opportunity to remind them of how special they are to you and show off your photos on the refrigerator.
These magnets are useful for holding grocery lists, short messages or any other lightweight item you want to display. They also make useful gifts for those who don't have much room to hang up framed photographs.
