Craft: Personalized Magnets

Craft: Personalized Magnets

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Display your family's magnetic personalities on your own fridge, or make a giftset for friends and relatives.


  • Unlined, colored index cards
  • Colored markers
  • Glue
  • Magnetic tape (sold at most office supply stores)
  • Family photographs


  1. Come up with a basic shape or design that can serve as a backdrop for each photo. If Uncle Thomas is an architect, for example, you might decide on a house. For a veterinarian, you could choose a pet; for a teacher, an apple; and so on.
  2. Cut out the shapes from the colored index cards and use the markers to embellish them.
  3. Next, trim the photos and glue them onto the cutouts. Add captions, if you'd like.
  4. Finally, glue pieces of magnetic tape to the backs, and the photos are ready to place on the door.
