What can make a gift more special than the one you create and personalise? If you have missed the recent personalised gift-making workshops at Tampines 1, here are the steps to DIY a personalised magnet gift:
Required materials (Top left to right): Magnet strips, painted ice-cream sticks, alphabet pasta, coloured magic pens, sparkling glue or colour glue, sparkling foam strips.
Form your personalised message & use glue to stick the alphabet pasta to the sparkling foam strip. Use magic pen to colour the pasta while leaving them to dry.
Pick a painted ice-cream stick & design it with the colour glue.
You can use a glue gun or a normal super glue to hold the sparkling foam strip to the ice-cream stick.
Apply super glue to the back of the ice-cream stick and paste on to the selected magnet strip, preferably one with a contrasting colour.
You have now completed your personalised magnet. :)
We hope you will enjoy the experience of creating your own personalized gifts. We are sure your loved ones will appreciate it.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas & happy holidays!
Love, Tampines 1
