Internet Meme Magnets-3 Ways {Delightfully Creative}


Internet Memes can be hilarious or even express a little of who we are. Why should they just be kept online? You can easily display your favorites on your refrigerator!

These also make a fun personalized gift. I made some for my sister as part of her Nerd Girl Gift Stash. I used some of the Nerd Girl Problems memes she pinned to Pinterest as well as some fun book art she pinned.

All you need is a computer, printer, magnets, Mod Podge, and a hard back. For the rectangular backs, I used 3"x2" wood pieces found at most craft stores. For the square ones, I used mini 2"x2" canvas panels I found at Michael's.

First, download the images you want to use and print them-normal paper works. Remember, some of these might be copyrighted so use for personal purposes only and not for money-making purposes! I tried to find ones that were free printables or just free images. Sometimes it's hard to tell with all the internet sharing/illegal posting going on.

After you cut out the images, Mod Podge them on the hard backs, wait for them to try and apply the top coats. When they are completely dry, you can distress them if you want and glue the magnets to the back.

For the Nerd Girl Problems magnets, I decided they would look better distressed, so I distressed the sides with medium grade sand paper. 

 For the rectangular book art magnets, I simply distressed the corners of the wood with medium grade sand paper to make the corners rounded.


I did no distressing to the square ones-you can't really distress canvas!


Easy peasy personalized gift! 

Delightfully Creating,
