Alphabet Tile Magnets

Create easy, simple, cute magnets with alphabet tiles!

Make super easy and fun Alphabet Tile Magnets for your home or as gifts! These magnets are strong and so cute! Check out the tutorial!


Hello! It’s Brynde from The Ribbon Retreat again. I’ll be sharing my third tutorial
with you today.

I love refrigerator magnets! Especially ones that don’t slide down the fridge
with one little paper. Today I will be showing you some easy magnets with The
Ribbon Retreat’s Alphabet Tiles and coordinating supplies.

Supplies

The majority of the items I used for this project can be purchased at The Ribbon
Retreat. For these magnets, you will need:

Alphabet Tiles
¾” Square Hole Punch
E6000
Magnets
Scrapbook Paper
Ink Pad (Optional)
Sponge (Optional)
¾” Square Epoxy Dots (Optional)

Cut out your scrapbook paper with your hole punch. Turn it upside down so you can see the image.

Start by punching out your scrapbook paper. Remember to hold the punch
upside down so you can see exactly will be cut out.

Sponge ink the edge for a more vintage look.

I like to sponge ink around the edges for more of a vintage look. To do this, you
lightly brush the tip of a sponge in your ink.

Quickly rub the ink around the square.

Then, with quick little strokes, run the inked sponge around your squares.

Add glue to the tile. Smear it all over the tile.

Next put your glue on the tile. It doesn’t matter which side. The picture shows a
dab of glue in the center. I recommend smearing it over the entire surface. This
prevents the image from curling up in the corners.

Attach the paper and let it dry for at least 10 minutes before the next step.

Press your paper onto the glue. Let the glue dry for about 10 minutes or so. This
way, the papers don’t slide when you attach the magnets.

You could also use The Ribbon Retreat’s Alphabet Tile Images for this project.
I chose the scrapbook paper because these fun little magnets will match some
other coasters I made for my new table.

Glue is drying, ready for magnets.

I can’t get over how cute these are! At this point you can seal with a thin coat of
mod podge.

Coat with mod podge or apply an epoxy dot.

Or you can add a ¾” square epoxy dot. It’s a great raised finish that’s very quick
and easy. Just be careful to not touch the sticky side when you are taking them
off the sheet. Your fingerprint will be visible in the finished product.

I chose to coat my tiles in a matte mod podge finish.

Add glue to the magnet and apply to back of the tile. Let dry overnight.

Put a dab of glue on your magnet and press to the back of the tile. Let the tiles
dry overnight.

The Ribbon Retreat’s magnets are awesome. They have a pull force of 3 lbs and
are very strong! They will not be sliding down your fridge!

WARNING: When letting your glue dry, do not let the magnet tiles get to close to
each other. In a split second, you will have all the magnets glued together and
little tiles flying everywhere! I speak from experience… It was pretty hilarious, but
not ideal.

Alphabet tile magnets are super easy to make and are so fun! They make great gifts!

There you go! You have a set of adorable little magnets. These would make
great gifts!

There are so many possibilities. Like I said before, you can put the Alphabet Tile
Images on the tiles or you can have just the letters. The letters would be so fun
for little ones!

Easy to make and adorable to use, bottlecap magnets are so fun!

You can use the same technique for some Bottle Cap Magnets. I used The
Ribbon Retreat’s Flattened Bottle Caps, Bottle Cap Images, 1” Hole Punch, and
1” Epoxy Dots to make the same thing.

These are seriously going to be my go-to gift from now on! I just love how both
sets turned out!


Thanks Brynde!
