Introduction: Customizable Magnet

Picture of Customizable Magnet

This is a really nice and easy project that any person can do. It barely takes any time, but yet they last a very long time, and they always look fantastic. Plus, you can stick them on your fridge, whiteboard, or whatever. I know that by the time I finished this I was taken aback, and was wondering, "How in the world did I make something that looked that good?"

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

For this project you will need very little materials. It is quiet an easy and simple project, plus it costs very little and you can make mass quantities of the magnet. .

You will need:

Modge podge
One glass small (or big) decorative accent
Pen
Picture of your choice either printed off the internet, or from any picture
Standard normal glue
Small magnet
Brush
Paper towel


Step 2: First Step: Find Your Picture

Picture of First Step: Find Your Picture

First, find your picture on the internet, or at home, it doesn't really matter. The picture should be a tiny bit smaller than your piece of glass. Once you've found it, print it, and then trace around your picture using your piece of glass as a guide. Next, cut it out. Try to go inside the lines just a tiny bit, you don't want any of your picture hanging out!

Step 3: Step 3: Glueing

Find your piece of glass, your picture, and the modge podge. Now, glue the front of the picture to the back of the glass. Remember, a little glue is a lot, the less the better. Just remember to have enough to acually have it glue on. If you put on too much glue you're o.k., just wipe off enough to make the picture visible and clear. Stick the picture onto the back of the glass. Try to get out as many air bubbles as you can, the more you get out the better the picture will look.

Step 4: Step 4: Putting on the Magnet
