Valentine's Day Magnets

This year my kids will be handing out Valentine's Day magnets instead of cards.  After looking online at the cost of having magnets made, I decided to make my own.   It is so easy and affordable!

First, I took some pictures of my kids.  Then I compiled nine of them onto a 5X7 in Photoshop.

I had them printed at Costco which is just $0.29 per 5X7.  Then I picked up some magnetic sheets from the local dollar store (Dollarama in Langley for locals!) for $1.25/sheet.  Each 5X7 fits well on one sheet.

You just peel off the paper and stick the photos right on.  So easy!

Then, cut the individual magnets out using a paper cutter or scissors.


I'm not sure if their classmates will appreciate pictures of their friends on the fridge but I know grandma and grandpa will!  I think I'll do this for our Christmas card next year too.

Have a great week, friends!
