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

Retreat. For these magnets, you will need:

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.
Then, with quick little strokes, run the inked sponge around your squares.
Next put your glue on the tile. It doesn’t matter which side. The picture shows a

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!

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
There you go! You have a set of adorable little magnets. These would make
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!
These are seriously going to be my go-to gift from now on! I just love how both
sets turned out!
