25 Days of {homemade} Christmas Gifts-Day 19 Chipboard letter magnets

This is one of those projects that are quick, easy, and really inexpensive to make!

Supplies for this project were;

chipboard letter (mine were in a set and are 3 inches tall.)
scrapbook paper
Modge Podge and foam brush
magnet sheet
Craft knife

Cover the top of your chipboard letter with Modge Podge and press your paper down on top of it. Use your craft knife to cut away the excess. You can use a piece of sandpaper to smooth out the edges. I left the sides of mine plain but you could always paint the sides. Then add your magnet to the back and you are done! How easy is that?! Use these as a gift, as an embellishment to your gift wrapping, or make a whole set for a kid just learning their alphabet! Much cuter than those plastic letters!
