Easy Geometric DIY Magnets For Kids

Join me today as I take you through the simple steps to create your own DIY magnets!

Easy geometric DIY magnetsI’ve always been intrigued by geometric shapes. I’ve been seeing trendy new geometric magnets in brilliant colors popping up from independent sellers to large retailers and everywhere in between.  I hate paying for a product when we can craft them easily ourselves, so I knew we had to create our own when I stumbled upon coasters in these fabulous bright greens and blue!

The process is simple, but takes a little patience and a steady hand to get straight lines!  Start by cutting two edges off the business card magnets, at an angle, so a simple rhombus is formed.  Then place the magnet on top of your cardstock (or coaster!) and cut a piece that is slightly larger than the magnet.
