What....? No card, layout or even my Cricut.

So has anyone heard of Pinterest? My daughter recently showed my this website where you can pin your interests to boards on your homepage that shows all your likes. Each pin usually has the link to the site it came from.  It is pretty amazing to see all the things people pin to there boards.  Well of course I came across some craft ideas!  I fell in love with the refrigerator magnets so I decided to start my quest on recreating these (I'm sure these are not new to many of you!).  Of course I combined the ideas of several of the websites on magnet making and started on my quest. After receiving all the supplies, I began my search for just the right pictures.  In these pictures I show the completed 1" magnets, how I attached them to the chip board and then the packaging. The first set of magnets were for my sister. She loves owls so I found cute pictures and made her a set.

Next I made a set for my other sister in Northern Michigan.  She loves to watch the different birds that visit her bird feeder so I found pictures of birds native to her area of the US.



Then my 3rd sister loves flowers so I thoughts a mix of different flowers would be appropriate.



After completing these, I decided to make some for both of my children to put in their Christmas stockings.  This time I used some personal pictures of them, their university mascot/logo, the Nike saying and Tom Brady's logo (of course my son thinks it's his since he has the same initials, is a QB and his number is 12).



I have since ordered the 2" glass tiles to make even more magnets.  I can't wait for them to arrive!!  Thanks for looking and I would love to hear your comments! If you would like the information I compiled to make these magnets, please email me and I will forward the information to you.  Have a blessed day!!

  1. Love these! A couple questions! Where did you find the owls? (my daughter loves owls!) Where did you get the glass tiles and what size are they? They look so clear. What glue did you use? I guess I would like full instructions. I have been thinking about making some but the glass I find does not look that clear. Thanks! Doreen

  5. These magnets are fantastic. I would love it if you would share your instructions too. The spice rack is also a great idea for someone like me with limited cabinet space. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Very easy! The only downfall is the drying time.
