CD Magnets – June 2019

Materials needed:

  • Old, no longer wanted cd’s
  • Magnets (I prefer flat magnets, not those that come in a roll)
  • Photos   5×7 works best
  • Elmer’s glue
  • scissors
  • pen


  1. Print photos 5×7 size from home on light weight cardstock or at the photo kiosk
  2. Holding cd behind photo and in front of a bright light center the cd
  3. Carefully set photo face down and trace around cd
  4. Cut out photo slightly inside the line
  5. Before applying glue, dry fit the photo to the cd to see if any extra trimming  needs to be done.
  6. Glue to cd making sure there is a fine line of glue around the outer edge (a little bit of glue goes a long way)
  7. Glue magnet to back of cd
  8. Let dry and then place on anything magnetic

I used photos that were printed on cardstock.  If using “real” photos I suggest smoothing the glue on the cd with your finger before attaching the photo to the cd.  Remember a little glue goes a long way.
