Hello, it’s Lisa here with a very simple tutorial showing you how to make magnets for your fridge or magnetic notice board.

Lisa  Magnets

To make these DIY Fridge Magnets you will need

  • Super smooth white card from Papermilldirect
  • Digital patterned papers of your choice
  • A colour printer to print the papers.
  • Magnetic sheets
  • Double sided adhesive sheet
  • Epoxy dome stickers (I used 1 inch round stickes)
  • 1 inch (2.54cm) circle punch/die/cutting file.
  • 1 cm (or any size as long as it’s smaller than your 1 inch punch) circle punch/die/cutting file.

Step One.

Print your digital paper of choice onto the super smooth white card. Punch/die cut 1 inch circles from the printed card. I've used summery papers but you can make these to any theme/colour combination that you'd like.

Step Two.

Peel an epoxy dome sticker from the backing sheet and adhere on top of your punch/die cut circles.

Step Three.

Take your magnetic sheet and affix your double sided adhesive to the matt side of the magnetic sheet. I get my magnetic sheets from eBay. They’re the sheets that are sold to hold your metal dies. Punch the magnetic sheet with the smaller punch. A small punch is used to make it easier to move the magnet around the notice board/fridge.

Step Four.

Remove the backing sheet from the punched magnets and affix to the back of your patterned circles.

Step Five.

Arrange your DIY Fridge Magnets on your notice board with pride.
