Simple DIY Magnets

Hello Friends, Thanks for stopping by my blog. In this blog post, I have shared how I turned the magnetic plumbing/electrician cards in cute & simple Magnets.

You can see a video for the same too. Just click on the below image.

So, I bet all of you would have received these plumber/electrician cards which are magnetic and stick to your fridge. I have been throwing these away for quite some time until I came up with this idea of turning them into cute fridge magnets!

Well, these are not exactly like the ones that you would get in the market but still, these are something that you can make at home without spending a penny. All you need is decorative papers/some images/old greeting card/anything accessible at home, adhesive, scissors and these magnetic cards.

Here’s how you can make them:

Collect all the things you need to make these and start. I have shown how I made the heart shape magnet in the steps below.

I have cut the heart shapes from an old greeting card. Therez two of them, one a little bigger than the other.

Add some glue to the bigger heart cutout and then add it to the magnetic card. Add the image to the printed side. Leave the blank black side as it is.


Let it dry before you start cutting the image out, as otherwise, the image will move while cutting. Once you feel that the image is all dry, start cutting.

Now cut a small piece of the magnetic card and glue it on top of the big heart cutout which we just glued to the magnetic card. This will give a dimensional effect to the magnet.


Glue the small heart on top of the big heart cutout like below. And your Fridge Magnet is ready!

Follow these simple steps with every single image of yours and your Fridge magnet is ready!

Please try not to use very heavy things to glue to these cards as am not sure of the weight these cards can take.

You can even make square magnets…Just cut the magnetic card in half and cover them with decorative paper and add some flower cutout of your choice.
