Looking for a fun handmade gift idea? I don’t know about you but I love creating special personalized gifts for friends and family. Today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make these cute glass tile homemade magnets. Not only do I use these personally, but they make great gifts as well. They can be personalized with photos or different types of papers for unique and custom gifts.
- Square and Rectangular Glass Tiles
- 3/16 x 1/2″ Round Magnets
- Tacky Glue
- Assorted Scrapbook Papers
- Foam Brush
For the packaging:
Step 1. You’ll start by tracing out the glass tiles on scrapbook paper. This is where you can get creative. You can use all one pattern of paper or coordinate with different styles. If you wanted to really personalize the magnets you could use photos printed small so they fit the magnets.
Step 3. After the scrapbook paper has been glued and dried to the glass tile, you’ll apply glue to the back of the magnet and secure it to the underside of the tile against the scrapbook paper. Let the glue dry completely and you’ve got some cute unique homemade magnets!
Step 4. PACKAGING: A great way to gift (and store) these glass tile homemade magnets are using these metal tins. They come with a lid and hold the magnets in place. You can add some flair by tracing out some coordinating scrapbook paper and gluing it to the top of the tin.
