Once you have the supplies on hand for these little gems, you can make customized magnets for next to nothing. We loved the idea of using Valentine Artwork – like kisses, x’s and o’s and hearts – to create a fun, totally unexpected gift for friends.

Materials
$2 Large glass gems (1 ¼”)
$5.49 Magnets with adhesive backing
$4.86 Mod podge
$0.77 Foam brush
$9.88 4 sets of 6 white boxes
$2.99 Baker’s twine
$3.99 Mixed paper crinkle shred
$4.93 White cardstock
White copy paper
Hole punch
Scissors
Magnet templates
Stuck on you tags

Cost for 20 valentines (not including tools): $34.91
Cost per valentine: $1.75

Step 1: Download the magnet templates and print on white copy paper. Cut out each magnet along the gray lines.
Step 2: Brush a light coat of Mod Podge on the flat side of each glass gem. Press a magnet picture (face down) on each gem and let dry 30 minutes.
Step 3: Peel the adhesive backing off the magnets and press a magnet onto each glass gem.
Step 4: Fill each box halfway with crinkle paper and add 2 magnets. Place the lid on and wrap the box with baker’s twine.
Step 5: Download the “Stuck On You” tags and print on white cardstock. Cut out each tag along the gray lines and punch a hole in the tag. Tie a tag onto each box.
