There are endless all occasion beautiful commercial magnets available on the web but nothing can be compared to a hand made product created by you.
If you like DIY projects, this one is just for you. Your guests will be delighted to get these little favors.
These favors are easy to make and suitable for baby showers and other occasions as well. We used commercial wooden flower cutouts and commercial hand made three dimensional felt flower. For extra touch we added tiny lady bug stickers.

Please follow the easy steps below:
Step 1 Paint the wood on both sides and let it dry thoroughly.
Step 2 Using scissors, cut 1" piece of the magnetic roll, peel the paper off the back and stick it onto the underside of the wood. If you use the circular magnets use a strong glue. These magnets are stronger than the magnetic roll.
Step 3 Stick the felt decoration onto the front. We recommend using additional glue for extra strength.
For presentation purpose only we used colored decorative paper for the ground . Although impressive, we would not recommend it for big quantities as it is time consuming to cut each complex shape separately.

Tip Type Felt Shapes and Wooden Shapes in the search box and you will find a large selections of these supplies.
Because these are fridge magnets we photographed them
against a neutral solid grey ground. We attached them to our metallic grey
fridge and they look just great.
However, to add more interest to the magnet favors we have chosen to present them in a more colorful and luxurious way, please see our suggestions below. For extra touch we added tiny lady bug stickers to the center of the felt flowers.
You will need clear cellophane envelopes and nice quality
colored paper. Decorative hand made paper is very rich and luxurious,
corrugated paper is very beautiful as well and comes in many colors and
finishes and it is very economical.
Cut the paper to a size slightly smaller than of the cellophane envelope and slide it inside, then lower the wooden magnet and place it in the center of the paper. If you want it to stay in place stick a small piece of strong double sided tape to the magnet itself underside. Close the edge with a circular clear sticker.
