Stuck On You! Magnets DIY Wedding Favors

Magnets DIY Wedding Favors

Stuck on You! Magnets DIY Wedding Favors. These little bundles of cuteness are the perfect do it yourself wedding favor. They can be made using any type of paper: recycled cards, cardstock, stamped cardstock, scrapbooking sheets, even magazines. 

After reading Not Martha's post to make marble magnets I had to make them myself. So I set off to my craft store, Ben Franklin and this is what I did. 

I used modge podge instead of glue and I used glass instead of acrylic bobbles, but the results were awesome. I also used a 1" circular punch out, saving me the time of having to cut out circles. And I used E-6000 to glue the magnets on. So long as you allow for drying time in between steps these little magnets are easy peasy to make.

And they would make unique weding favors that would double as cheap wedding favors. Two for one. 

If you are looking for a finishing touch to these homemade wedding favors. I particularly like a metal tin container (like in the image above). And I did some research. You can order these tins from a site like The Knot and they come with personalized stickers. 

If you are looking to buy magnets such as the ones above, many retailers on Etsy, such as HoneyBunnyPaperie, sell them, and they are reasonably priced if you are looking to give them as gifts, but they are a bit pricey as wedding favors. 

These little magnets make great gifts for any occasion, and would be darling as bridesmaids gifts. Why not create a unique set for each member of your bridal party or family?

I've found a new hobby! Anyone else stuck on magnets?

And this bling won't break the bank. There are so many options and bouquet accessories to choose from that you won't have trouble finding just the right amount of glam for your taste. Brenda's wedding Blog shares some of the latest bouquet crystals for your wedding flowers.

If you are looking to buy crystal bouquet jewelry, including a bouquet jewelry butterfly (my favorite), you can find it at Weddingish. Or you can also find bouquet accessories of all kinds, including pearls, from Northwest Bridal. 

I love sparkly. Put something shiny in front of me and I'm instantly distracted. That could be why I love the glitz of flower bouquet jewelry. There is something reminiscent of old Holywood in this bouquet wedding trend
