Join me today as I take you through the simple steps to create your own DIY magnets!
I’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!
My favorite shape is the rhombus, probably because it can make cool chevrons and arrows and such, but my boys are much more into the other shapes we created. This is definitely a craft kiddos can do right along with you!
- Thick Cardstock *These little wooden rectangles could also be cute for a longer lasting toy!
- Sharp Scissors
- Business Card Magnets
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.
