Camp Craft Series: Locker Magnets

This is part of a series of tutorials of crafts that were made at Girls Camp.  Check back throughout the week for more tutorials and amazing examples from all the wonderful, creative girls.

When deciding on crafts we chose to create these locker magnets.  We wanted to girls to come away with something that would remind them of their values, of who they are, of the Savior, of things that are important to them.  We hope that these magnets will be a reminder, a hope, a comfort to the girls (even if just for a second) on those long hard days of school.  There is so much temptation to do wrong that sometimes it takes a little reminder of who you are, and where you're going to keep you on the straight and narrow.


  • Glass Tiles 1 7/8 x 7/8 (see below)
  • Images (see printables below)
  • Mod Podge
  • E 6000 glue
  • Magnets (see below)
  • Foam brush
  • Scissors

The glass tiles and magnets were purchased from ThoseSweetSensations.  I was unable to find the tiles anywhere in stores and this shop had exactly what I needed in the quantities I needed and for a reasonable price.  They also had the best magnets I have ever seen.  I would highly recommend getting their magnets.  They were extremely thin and extremely strong.

 If you click on the following images you will be directed to a site where you can print off the images for the magnets.  I would recommend printing with a laser jet (we used a copy service) and letting the ink dry at least over night to ensure you won't have a smudged image.

In no way do you have permission to sell anything made from them.

Step 1:  On the rough side of the glass paint on a thin but even layer of Mod Podge.
Step 2:  Cut out the image and place it face down onto the Mod Podged side of the glass.

Step 3:  Allow glue to dry enough that the paper won't move if you touch it.  Your image will look foggy at first.  The Mod Podge will dry and become clear.
Step 4:  Take a small amount of the E 6000 and place it on one side of the magnet.

Step 5:  Place the magnet onto the back of the paper and tile.  Let dry.

These were the simplest craft that we had and some of the girls who considered themselves, "not crafty" enjoyed making these.  There wasn't a lot of room for personalization with these but we did have extra glass gems that I donated from my personal stash.  The young women were able to use the same method as above but used scrapbook paper instead of the printables.

One girl created a set of magnets with the Young Women Values written on them.  They are so beautiful.  She used scrapbooking paper and a permanent marker to create them.
