Quick & Easy DIY Magnets for Teachers

At the end of every school year I like to give a small gift to the boys' teachers to show my appreciation for all the work they've done during the school year. I like to give a homemade gift that will be useful and I think these magnets will make the perfect gift this year. These magnets are so easy to do and very budget-friendly.

There are just a few supplies that you will need for this project:

Round 1.5" Jot magnets from the Dollar Tree
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
Scrapbook Paper
Scissors (or 1.5" circle punch)

I found the school-themed paper online. Here are the links to the papers that I used:

First, turn the magnets upside-down onto scrapbook paper, trace around the top and cut it out (or use a 1.5 inch circle punch). Using a paintbrush, spread Mod Podge on the face of the magnet and put the paper circle on top of the magnet, making sure it is centered. Hold the paper in place in the center of the magnet for about 15-20 seconds or until it has adhered to the magnet and then gently smooth the paper down from the center of the magnet to the edges so that there aren't any wrinkles.

After the Mod Podge has dried, trim around the edges, if needed. Add one more layer of Mod Podge over the scrapbook layer and around the edges of the magnet.

Let the Mod Podge dry and your project is done! These magnets would make great gifts for many different occasions, or make some for yourself to enjoy!
