Have you wanted to try to make your own magnets, but you’re not sure where to start? You’re not alone! This project has been on my to-do list for some time now, and I keep putting it off because I wanted to make it as easy as possible. Then one day while I was organizing my Craft Studio, it hit me! I can make magnets in one step with my Xyron Creative Station! No separate laminate, no printable vinyl, no need to line anything up, and no assembly required! Are you excited? Me too, let’s get right to all the details.
How to Make Magnets with Cricut
What you will need:
- Xyron Creative Station (comes in two sizes, this works with both you just need to adjust the size of your print)
- Xyron Laminate/Magnet Refill
- Photo Paper
- Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker
- Deep Point Blade
- Design of your choice uploaded in Cricut Design Space
- Strong Grip Mat
- Painters Tape
To start I uploaded my design in Cricut Design Space. Not sure how to do that? Check out my video below that includes that step! Once you have loaded or selected your design in space, size it for your paper size and add an offset. Make sure you group the offset and images and then flatten so just the outline of the offset is cut.
Send your design to your printer following the prompts. Not sure how to print from your Cricut? Don’t worry, that step is in my video too! Select the settings and be sure to print on quality paper.
Once printed, run the paper through the Xyron. The Xyron will adhere a laminate to the top and a magnet sheet to the back. Want to see what else the Creative Station can do? Check out my DIY Christmas Tier Tray Decor idea!
Place your printed design on a strong grip mat and secure the edges with painter’s tape. Be sure not to cover the registration marks (the black outline at the end of your page).
Load the mat into the machine and select Magnet as your material. Install the Deep Point Blade and go!
Once the Cricut is done, unload your cut design to reveal your fancy new magnets! I love how the laminate gives them a nice glossy shine.
As I mentioned, I created a step-by-step tutorial for this project from start to finish for you! Check it out below….
What do you think? Wasn’t that so simple? I’m so happy about how they turned out, and best of all they are SUPER EASY!
