- 2x2inch canvas. You can get these at Walmart in a three pack for $1.50. Or you can buy one with a magnet attached for a buck. I don't like that because the magnet is weak.
- Button Magnets if you don't buy a canvas with magnet attached.
- Mod Podge Glue (I've found this at the dollar store for a buck.)
- Aleene's Original Gloss Finish sealer (optional. It really depends on your printer and I'll get into that in a second.)
Next, glue on your graphic with Mod Podge. You don't need a lot of glue. Spread it over the canvas and then smooth the graphic down. Let it dry for at least an hour. I usually go overnight.
After the glue is dry, you seal it. This is where what kind of printer you have matters. I have a laser printer. An ink jet printer might risk smudging the ink when moistened by the sealer. A spray sealer might be better as you don't have to brush it. Make sure to do it in a well ventilated area because it smells really bad. They'll need to cure for a couple weeks. Otherwise, they'll stick if you put something on top of it.
It also might be optional to skip sealing it. That's for protection against wear and tear, so if you're making it for yourself and know you'll take good care of it, skip sealing. But if you're going to give it away, I'd seal it.
Add magnets if you didn't buy the canvas with magnets pre-attached. I like tacky glue, but any kind should work.
If you give it a try, I want to see the results. Or if there's some SWAG that you make, I want to to know. I always need more ideas to try, she says as her husband laughs. ;)
