Laugh Your Ass off Magnets DIY | Trashy Crafter Recycled Craft #4

Vintage encyclopedias offer a wealth of cheesy illustrations, and how could you let that go to waste! I bought a set of 12 vintage 1960’s encyclopedias and cut the fun images out.  Then I grabbed a bottle of beer and dreamt up the most ridiculous quotes to place on each magnet.  I could easily see this craft turning into one fun evening of crafting with friends!  It’s easy to do, and heck it’s even fun…

Gather all the images you want to use, then trace the wood piece for the magnet onto the image you want and cut it out.

Decoupage each image onto the piece of wood and be sure to carefully go over the top to get rid of all bubbles or ridges.

Print out the text you want to use and then decoupage that onto the image when the first layer is dry. Then put a few more coats of Mod Podge onto it and a finishing matte coat.
