DIY Instagram Magnets

We’ve all seen ads for companies that make instagram magnets – for the low low price of a lot of money.  Making my own was much easier and cheaper than I imagined.

Here’s what you need:

Prints of your instagram pictures
- You can either get them printed at walgreens or another photo printer, or print your own on slightly thick paper. I printed my own on 60 lb paper in two sizes – 2 and 2.5 inches (2 inches is authentic instagram size, but I wanted some bigger ones as well).

Magnet Paper
- I bought a roll of magnet paper at Michaels (Jo Ann’s didn’t carry it) for about $10 and used a 40% off coupon.  One roll did quite a few – I made three sets of between 8-12.


First, cut out your instagram picture.

Then cut out a similar size (a hair bigger) magnet. Peel off the paper, line up a corner of the instagram picture as close as you can, and press them together. Smooth over with your fingers to get rid of any air bubbles.


Use your scissors to trim around the magnet to tighten up the edges. That’s it!

The finished project:
