Here is a fairly easily way to make picture magnets for your friends, family or yourself with some magnetic business cards, an ink jet printer and a couple programs. Not to mention it is a lot cheaper than anything you will find in the store.
Step 1: What you're going to need
There aren't to many needs for this Instructable to get a very good end product. Here is the list of what you are going to need.
1. Magnetic business card
You can find these at any office supplies store or large retailer. I got mine at Walmart (50 magnets for $18). There are a bunch of different name brands and different counts inside the packages and such. I used the ones in the picture below.
2. Ink jet Printer
The magnetic business cards require an ink jet printer.
3. Software to put everything together
I used Photoshop and Microsoft Word for making my magnets, but you should be able to use any imaging software that can crop, rotate, and change the image size. Also You may be able to use a different program then Microsoft Word as long as it is able to open a template that corresponds with the magnetic business card sheet.
4. Decoupage glue, clear sealer or clear tape (optional)
You should be able to find this at any craft store or you can also make your own. I didn't use this on mine but I will explain more later.
