Made from recycled cereal boxes, these sweet little heart magnets are both easy and economical to make. Stitch up a handful and share the love with your friends and family.
Note: I originally published this tutorial in my portfolio, but over the next little while I'll be working on re-publishing these tutorials here just to simplify things and keep it all together.
- An empty cereal box
- 2" circle punch
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Corrugated cardboard
- Scratch paper
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery needle
Not pictured: scotch tape
Center heart over a circle and place on top of cardboard.
Use thumbtack to poke holes around the outside of the heart.
Tape one end of the embroidery floss to the back of the circle.
Send needle down through the hole at the base of the heart.
Bring needle back up through the third hole.
Send needle back down through the second hole again.
Continue to sew, sending the needle up through the hole in front and back down through the hole just behind it for the rest of the heart.
Press heart into magnet to secure.
