My daughter started middle school this year and she has her own locker. Next to decorating her bedroom, decorating her school locker is one of the most important ways for her to express her individuality and personality.
Inkjet magnetic sheets make it super easy to create your own personalized magnets. Simply choose which digital kit you want to use and print on magnetic paper. For my daughter’s magnets, she chose Amy Sumrall’s Rawr kit because of all the fun little monsters in the kit.
I picked up my inkjet magnet sheets at a local Staples office supply store.
Here’s how I made my magnets:
- Open a new 8.5 x 11″ white canvas in your favorite program.
- Open the elements that you want to make into magnets.
- Copy and paste each element onto your canvas.
- Resize to your liking – I sometimes need to take a look at a tape measure or ruler to get an accurate visual as to how large or small my printed elements will be.
- Position your elements on your canvas so that you get as many on one sheet as you can.
- Print according to the instructions included in the inkjet magnet sheets packaging.
- Allow to dry – I usually allow my printed project to dry at least an hour before handling it.
- Trim around each element and you’re done!
Some other ideas for magnetic sheets:
- Create a bunch of magnets for your kids to hand out in August/September as a “Welcome back to school” surprise
- Create magnets/magnetic frames to decorate your refrigerator
- Use to create “Save the Date” magnets for events such as baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, etc.
The possibilities are endless. So, go forth and create magnets!
And if you do, please link me up so I can “Oooooo!” and “Ahhhhh” over your magnets!
