Ceramic Tile Magnets
In my post yesterday, I shared with you my washi tape magnet boards. I wanted to some new magnets to go with the boards and decided to make my own.
For the main body of my magnets, I purchased this sheet of 2x2 ceramic tiles from Home Deport for $2.57.
I brushed on a thin layer of mod podge on the tile and then placed the paper on the magnet.
I used my hand to press the paper onto the magnet and rub down the sides to help adhere to the mod podge.
I then placed a layer of Mod Podge over the paper to help seal it. I set them aside to dry.
If you have never used Mod Podge, it goes on white but will dry clear.
Once dry I placed four magnets/tacky dots onto the back of the tile.
If it doesn't feel like they are going to stick to the tile, add some extra glue to the magnets.
I used some Fabri-Tac glue for an extra hold.
Here are the completed magnets.
I love how colorful they are and the paper collection was perfect for this project.
Here they are on my washi tape covered magnet board.

I hope you are inspired by this easy but fun project.
