White Mini Canvas PANELS*
Brush for Mod Podge application
Magnet strips, dots, or whatever shape preferred
Glue to attach magnet to canvas
Photographs, illustrations, graphics
Make sure they are PANELS and not canvas “boxes” or frame type.
Panels will lay flatter against the refrigerator than a “box canvas.”
Step 1: Print Out Desired Graphic/photo
I used 4x6 glossy photo paper for my graphics and was able to print two on one sheet.
Cut the graphic out using a paper cutter or scissors.
Test your cut size against the canvas. Make sure you sized your graphic correctly.
Step 2: Paint Canvas Edges.
Step 3: Attach Graphic/photo to Canvas
Apply Mod Podge on the canvas with the painted edges. Place your graphic or photo on the Mod Podge. Make sure it is centered. Do not worry about cleaning up any hang over edges until the Mod Podge is dry.
Apply first layer of Mod Podge coating in a horizontal direction. When this layer is completely dry – apply second coat in vertical direction.
Make sure Mod Podge dries completely between all applications.
Step 5: Attach Magnet to Back of Canvas
You can purchase already cut strips, circles, and a wide variety of magnet applications.
While this magnet already had a sticky backing – I added quick dry glue as an extra precaution.
After this step – your refrigerator magnet is ready!
Step 6: Ideas for Use of the Personalized Magnets
Great party gift for weddings (use wedding pic with date), graduation (send them to college with magnets showing their high school graduation and date), birth announcements – only limited by your imagination.
