    Want to make a Conversion Magnet (with Vista Print)

    Hi eveyone! I want to make a Conversion Magnet with my info on it. I'm coming up with some ideas, just wanted to see what conversions you would use on one.

    One that I always forget, is how many oz in a gallon. (128 by the way)...

    I thought if we come up with all the ones to include, I'll make up a chart and then we can up load it to vista print and add our info on the bottom.

    Just trying to think of something handy to have on our customer's fridge doors so they don't forget us!

    Wow...that's just 30 cents a magnet! That is a good deal with those. Not sure how I would use 100 of these right now though! Guess start with just the Hosts and the $100+ orders like the shopping bags and work down...

    I did this one year and my hosts loved it! I ordered extra and now give them away at the end of shows with the DPS drawings--people fight over them! Definitely worth it.

    Here is what I came up with. Through Vista Print the first 10 are free... I copied the text here so you can see it. If anyone needs help, I'll do my best to help you create it in vista print if you have any questions... OR if anyone makes a similar one, I would love to see improvements on it!

    If anyone finds anything wrong with it, please let me know!

    Dry Measures
    Dash = less than 1/8 tsp.
    3 tsp. = 1 tbsp.
    4 tbsp. = 1/4 cup
    5 tbsp. + 1 tsp. = 1/3 cup
    8 tbsp. = 1/2 cup

    Liquid Measures
    2 tbsp. = 1 fluid oz.
    8 oz = 1 cup
    2 cups = 1 pint = 16 oz.
    2 pints = 1 quart
    4 cups = 1 quart = 32 oz.
    8 cups = 1/2 gallon = 64 oz.
    4 quarts = 1 gallon
    16 cups = 1 gallon = 128 oz.
    8 oz. (weight) = 1/2 lb.
    16 oz. (weight) = 1 lb.

    Substitutions
    1 C Buttermilk = 1 T Fresh Lemon Juice + 1 C Milk
    1 Egg = 1/4 c. of Liquid Eggs (from carton)

    1 tsp Baking Powder =
    1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar + 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda

    that's an excellent idea! You have no idea how often I'm googling conversions! We used to have something in the kitchen but it seems to have disappeared!

    Same here... I wish I could find it, but I think my 3 year old helped it have legs!

    I gave them away at my last booth too. I think I'll keep more on hand now for things like that.

    The magnet looks great. Love your graphics. The tartar in cream of tartar doesn't have an 'e'. I looked in an online dictionary to be sure.:blushing:

    And when I have had to make the substitute buttermilk I've used whatever % I had on hand and it worked.

    Thanks, I'm not very good with spelling, so thanks for catching that! And good point with the buttermilk substitute I'll take out the word skim.

    I figure anytime I order from Vista Print and they are giving 10 magnets fre I might as well take them.
     
Have something to add?
