Magnetic sheets
 
Since SU is no longer offering the magnetic sheets, does anyone know where to buy these now?

Thanks,
Shirl

I would like to know also.

I use vent covers from the hardware store.

me too....it's cheap and it works. I got mine at Home Depot (about $5 for 3 large sheets - quite economical compared to the ones that are already cut to size you find at the craft stores) :

E/O Magnetic Vent Covers (3-Pack)-MC815/3 at The Home Depot

You may need to ask for help finding it because it's thin and not displayed visibly. Of course, once I figure out where they were in the store....they moved them the next time I went. LOL!!

Thanks, I would never have thought of that. And then how do you cut them or with what do you cut them?

I just use my paper cutter. It may take a couple runs, but it cuts smoothly.

KatarinaM 08-10-2012 04:20 PM

I've gotten a large roll of it from Michael's with a coupon, then cut it down on my guillotine trimmer.

If you have a guillotine cutter, they cut like butter. Also, they are white on the "face" - intended to be painted or wallpapered - so I'm guessing you could do some fun things with stamps and/or paper, as well. Haven't tried it yet, but intend to soon (maybe even this weekend)...

gregzgurl 08-10-2012 05:22 PM

Forgot to mention that you can also buy magnetic sheets at craft stores, but they are usually thinner and more expensive than the vent covers.

I found a few links, too:
Blank magnetic sheets
Staples inkjet magnetic sheets
Avery inkjet magnetic sheets

RiverIsis 08-10-2012 07:39 PM

Another vote for vent covers! Easy to cut, great product. Don't be afraid to go into your hardware store and ask. Mine were 15inches long. I cut them in thirds.

Wannabestampin' 08-10-2012 09:01 PM

I buy mine from the dollar store. They're meant to make your own photo magnets so they have adhesive on one side. Works well for me!

basurok 08-10-2012 09:07 PM

Thanks for the great ideas...vent covers, magnetic frames from the dollar store. I am going to have to check that out. I was sad that SU discontinued the square envies too.
!!!

xayide2 08-11-2012 07:00 AM

Hubby made magnet sheets for my dies out of the magnetic vent covers. Just cut them in strips and glued them on my good double sided cardstock. :)

stampin granny60 08-11-2012 07:04 AM

Thanks for all the good ideas

SophieLaFontaine 08-11-2012 08:10 AM

Yeah, another vote for magnetic vent covers. I just cut them with normal scissors and also with my Fiskars paper cutter. The vent covers don't work on vents (not mine anyway), but they sure are nice for Nestabilities.

k dunbrook 08-11-2012 08:15 AM

great thread....thanks for all the info...

I found some at the Dollar Store here in Canada.....

Rachelrose 08-11-2012 08:58 AM

Stamping Scrapping has magnetic sheets of different sizes and die storage stuff. I was just over there on their website spending money and saw them.

Me too. I have used vent covers, but find them a little thicker than I like for some things. I've also gotten sheets at Js.

winnieu 08-11-2012 07:57 PM

I got mine from Ellen Hudson.

BillieDee 08-12-2012 09:22 AM

Magnetic vent covers from Home Depot here. I get 2.5 from each sheet and tape the 2 halves together. It's a deal!

nancystamps 08-12-2012 02:46 PM

Also check the school supply clearance sales.... look for the magenetic locker decorations which are just magnet sheets!

dottiejdavis 08-13-2012 05:02 PM

I've purchased tons of vent covers from ACE hardware. They do not have the peal on the back but have to use a spray adhesive if you want to glue them in dvd cases. I got the cases from tapeonline for .88 ea...king size. They work beautifully. Some people put the magnet sheets on only one side so you can see through to what you have but I have so many dies I didn't want to spend a fortune so I put magnetic sheets on both sides and put the dies in. Plenty of room and I labeled the side so it I now can find everything. Voila!

BadSherry 08-13-2012 06:35 PM

I've been using these from Oriental Trading: Adhesive Magnetic Sheets. I used to use the vent covers, but I found I could get more for the money here.

ttemby 08-13-2012 08:39 PM

My husband just picked me up some magnetic sheets. Got 3 of them in a pack. Each sheet measuring 8" x 15" for $4.47 from Home Depot.

eboyd 08-15-2012 02:37 AM

Another vote for vent covers. I get mine a Lowes cut with fiscars or scissors and glue in cd cases to store my dies.

MadelinesMom03 08-15-2012 03:42 AM

I get adhesive backed magnetic sheets from the dollarstore...2 for $1. I actually just put one on an old clear plate for the big shot for my nestabilities and it works perfect!! Glad I didn't throw out that clear plate like I was going to

eboyd 08-15-2012 03:44 AM

wow that is great to know. I'll keep mine then also. Cuttlebug's are a mess too.

prschafer 08-15-2012 03:46 AM

magnetic sheets
 
Oriental Trading Company sells a pack of 12 8 1/2 x 11 sheets for $10.50.

eboyd 08-15-2012 03:50 AM

I have those too but the sheets at Lowes are convenient, no postage and they are big. I have enough magnets now to keep me going for a year

jeanne3579 08-15-2012 07:59 AM

I used the rolls from Michael's until I discovered the vent covers. They are a bit thicker which doesn't make a difference since I store mine in clear plastic photo pages, but they also have more magnetism and hold the Nesties in place better. Both cut with scissors or a guillotine cutter.

That is where I get mine. Work great. Cut like butter on my Tonic and can also punch clean. Haven't been brave enough to try Framelits or Nestabilities.

Julie Gerbitz 08-15-2012 01:24 PM

How about FREE ones? >> old calendars magnets, team-schedules, restaurants, magnetic business cards, etc? (I just soak the paper layer off in warm water with a little dish soap (like Dawn).)
I hear there were given large ones away at local State Fair (WI).

jodylb 08-15-2012 03:55 PM

I use the Avery Ink Jet Magnet Sheets. Five 8.5x11 sheets for about $13.00. Icut each into four, and attach to the back half of Nesties insert with double stick tape. I cut the picture w set name from the front of the insert and put it on the outside of an 8.5x5.5 envelope. Two sets of Nesties per envelope, stored in a photo box (without the lid). I have 55 sets in one box with room for more. You can find the envelopes cheap at Pac-N-Mail in my area, and I buy the cheapest double stick tape I can find- Walgreen Walmart Dollar Store.
I keep like shapes together and can find what I'm looking for in a flash!

thanks for the info... is it Dollarama or a local dollar store.

scrapiegirl75 08-18-2012 05:15 PM

Awesome thing about the vent covers besides the price, is if you have the cricut deep cut blade it will cut them too. I made Mickey Glove shaped magnets as favors for my daughters 2nd birthday party that said look what ___ did with each kids name on, it out of vinyl. I have also made dirty/clean signs for my dish washer, I covered the pattern paper with clear contact paper from the dollar store before I cut out my design not only is it super cute, matches my kitchen but it is also water resistant because of the contact paper! Oh yeah I have also made "paper" dolls from the vent covers too, again using my cricut!

jeanne3579 08-18-2012 07:00 PM

Col ideas, Scrapiegirl75. Wish my dishwasher would attract magnets---have tried it before with pictures and magnets, but no go. Don't have a Cricut, but sure do like the paper doll idea for my granddaughter.

eboyd 08-19-2012 02:35 AM

Oh my gosh what great ideas. thank you. Can you tell me what blade depth and pressure you use with the magnetic sheets.?

If you wanted to flip through a binder instead of a box, you can get 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" page protectors and binders at Staples. Just a thought...

muscrat 08-19-2012 07:50 AM

If you want thinner, I like the three pack at Walmart in the craft section. The best thing is they have a peel off backiing and have adhesive so You don't have to figure out how to get them to stick. And they cut very easily. I also use the vent covers, but went back to Walmarts brand since they were more convenient.

eboyd 08-19-2012 09:03 AM

I'll have to check Walmart out. I already have a package from Oriental Trading and have another 5.00 coupon for there too. Thanks for all the ideas
