Recycled Fridge Magnet Bases

Recycling old fridge magnets into magnetic base strips for toy soldier storage boxes …

I found a small cache of these old disused flexible fridge magnets being thrown out at work, so before they were binned, I snaffled or scrounged them (with permission).

I have recycled them into either figure basing strips or the magnetic strips on the bottom of toy Soldier storage boxes, as the magnetic polarity ‘thing’ goes.

After peeling the shiny advertising paper label off, they are thin enough to easily cut with scissors. This has saved a pound or two on magnetic self adhesive tape and also saved a tiny patch of landfill.
