These applications are suitable to do with children and can be adapted further for the more advanced crafters! So, lets get started!


MAGNETIC JEWELLERY CLASPS

Are they obsessed with jewellery? Get creative and make them a bracelet or necklace from scratch! Our magnetic clasps are a safe and secure way to
fasten any bracelet or necklace. This is a great activity to do with the children, as they can choose the beads and style of the accessory. Follow our step by step below…

Step 1

Make your necklace or bracelet. Thread beads on to string or ribbon. (Great fun for the children!)

Step 2

Simply thread and knot the jewellery through the central hole with the two counter-bored sides facing each other.

Step 3

The clasps will attract together, as shown in the picture.


MAGNETIC PHOTO HOLDERS

Do they have a picture for every moment? Then why not make them some magnetic photo holders for her fridge!
Start by getting some of her favourite pictures printed off. Then follow these simple steps…

Step 1

Get some wooden clothes pegs and decorate them. Design ideas- Monsters, superheroes, personalised messages, glitter etc.

Step 2

Then with our magnetic tape, simply cut to size and stick to the backs of the pegs. We advise allowing the adhesive 24-32 hours to fully cure.

Step 3

Clip each photo in a peg and you’re ready to go! The clip feature allows them to pick and change the pictures the more they take.


MAGNETIC BROACH

Are they into fashion? Try making them a magnetic broach! This is an ideal alternative to traditional pin backs
as they won’t leave holes in her clothing or accessories. View how to make your own below…

Step 1

Create your broach. Design ideas: Fabric patches or jewelled applique or create your own with felt and fabric.

Step 2

Then simply peel and stick our adhesive backed steel disc to the back of the broach.

Step 3

Then use the magnetic disc to sit underneath the clothing to secure into place. Top tip: The broach can also be used as a fastener for tote bags!


MAGNETIC TOTE BAGS

Do they love to shop? Our textile sew in magnets are perfect for sewing into the tops of tote bags, to keep them securely closed.
This will help protect their shopping on those rainy days! Follow our step by step below…

Step 1

Decorate your tote bag. Design ideas:
fabric paints, tie dye or applique for the more advanced crafters!

Step 2

Sew one magnet in the inner top of the bag and sew the other magnet to the opposing side.

Step 3

Then you’re good to go! A great little gift for any shopaholic!
