At my journalistic education we worked with Macs and did magazine layout in Quark Express. I’ve installed Adobe’s layout program InDesign because I want to know it too. While trying it out I did a tutorial on how to create decoupaged chipboard magnets! I saved it in PDF-format so that you all can have a look!

It’s free for you to download and print. I hope you like it. I had fun making it, but I wish my designing skills were better. But if anyone enjoys this I might do more tutorials in the future and maybe improve my layout skills a bit.

If you want to bookmark the tutorial please link to this post, thank you!

  1. That tutorial is so well designed and pretty — it’s a work of art in itself, Hanna.

    The process is very similar to the one I use for my map magnets, except I use wood pieces instead of chipboard, and the watercolor paper prints that didn’t work as prints. They’re time-consuming, but people seem to love them and they made GREAT Christmas presents this year.

    You can also take one image and cut it out across multiple pieces of wood/chipboard, so that it makes a magnet set, almost a puzzle.

    These are so pretty! I’ve been wanting to do a project with decoupage, but I’m not quite ambitious enough to do a piece of furniture. I think I’m going to send this tutorial to my 12 year old neice also, I think she’d like it. Thanks!!!
