With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I decided to make a custom magnet board – this time to celebrate Mom!  I pulled out some scrabble tiles and turned them into magnets.  I added a couple of butterfly magnets along with some glitter glass magnets that will hold up your favorite family photo.

This one specifically is for sale in my Handmade Amazon Shop for $19.99 + Free Shipping!

You can purchase an additional set of these Butterfly Magnets just for your refrigerator.  These are my #2 seller behind the Glass Tile magnets I also have for sale.  

I take custom orders as well.  If you are looking for a specific color or pattern for the background on a frame like this, let me know and I can make it happen for you!  🙂
