I'm happy to present to you this idea, which is very effective thanks to the super quality and strength of your super magnets. These memo pins are 'très funny' and can easily be made by children. They will certainly be full of pride when they can give these pins to friends and family at parties and birthdays.
First choose an attractive character, print or copy it, or use a drawing done by your child. I recommend a size of 5 to 7 cm, so you might need to reduce the size of the picture.
Then glue the character to a 3-4mm thick piece of plywood.
Let it dry for 24 hours then cut it out using a jigsaw.
Then, take a clothes-peg and drill a hole with a diameter of 1.5 mm into one side. Drill a second hole into the top of a pencil or pen. Connect the clothes-peg and the pencil using a thin string (1 mm) and tie a knot on both ends of the string.
Use wood glue to fasten a figurine to the drilled half of the clothes-peg, just below the hole. Use a strong adhesive to glue a small super magnet, for example a Q-05-05-02-G, to the backside of the other half of the clothes-peg.
Now you have a memo clip which everybody will love, as I've learned at various Christmas markets!
