When you mention Earth day, the first thing that pops into my head is recycling, so I decided to alter some old refrigerator magnets.
I made these so I can display my children's artwork proudly. Since both my children have the same initial, I went with a pink color scheme for my daughter and a blue color scheme for my son, to tell the difference.

For the Pink Magnet:
-Place the initial onto your choice of chipboard shape.
-Cut pattern paper into about an inch strip.
-Take off the adhesive part of the chipboard shape and adhere the pattern paper strip around the shape, in my case it's the circle, folding as you go to create the pleats.
-Take a scrap cardstock about the same size of the chipboard shape and sandwich the pattern paper pleats between the chipboard and cardstock.
-Adhere to the magnet.
-Embellish more if desired.
For the blue magnet
-Cut a circle from pattern paper, big enough to cover the magnet
-Adhere the desired letter onto your chipboard shape.
-Adhere a strip of ribbon, with edges cut in an angle, over the bottom part of the circle paper.
-Place the monogrammed chipboard over the pattern paper and ribbon.
-Glue the magnet on the back of the circle.-Embellish more if desired.
