DIY Box Tops Reminder Magnets with FREE Cut File & Printable

Many thanks to the folks over at General Mills for sponsoring today’s post! Earlier this week, I shared a Rookie Box Tops for Education User’s Guide that details the 411 on this awesome FREE program for schools. Make sure you check it out to see just how easy it is to earn big bucks for your kiddo’s school by doing what you’re probably already doing: stocking your pantry. Yup, it’s that easy.

I mentioned that I’m also going to recruit family members and friends to help us start (and grow) our Box Tops collection. The more, the merrier (and more moola), right? To help remind them to snip these little rectangles of cardboard curricular currency, I created a super simple DIY reminder magnet that they can slap on their fridges.

Now they have no excuse for saying they forgot to bust out those scissors!

As promised, here’s the complete tutorial as well as the FREE cut file and printable for you to snag if you’d like! Use them to make your own Box Tops reminder magnets, or for any other fun purpose at school, such as:

  • Bulletin boards
  • Posters
  • Newsletters
  • Mailing inserts
  • Stickers

Supplies

  • Adhesive magnet sheet
  • Printed Box Tops reminder images (you can download them for free below!)
  • Silhouette Cameo (or you can use good ole scissors or a knife)

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out both the printed images as well as the adhesive magnet backings, but you certainly can get the job done with scissors or an Xacto knife. No biggie.

If you’d like a full detailed tutorial on how to utilize the Silhouette’s print & cut function, check this out. And I also have another tutorial showing how I created some DIY photo magnets using this same method, so feel free to scope that out too.

 

The How-To

Here’s the basic process. It’s super simple to whip these out!:

Print the images then cut them out. I used regular printer paper and my home inkjet printer, but you can certainly use photo paper or card stock if you’d like to get extra fancy.

Next, cut out the same shapes from the adhesive magnet sheet.

Peel away the paper backing on the magnet to reveal the sticky adhesive side.

Line up the edges and apply the printed design to the magnet. That’s it!

Since it’s just printer paper, these of course aren’t waterproof. If you’d like them to be more durable, maybe look into another medium like printable vinyl. But these work just fine for us as well as our family and friends!

We recently just picked up a bunch of tasty General Mills treats from Walmart that have Bonus Box Tops (yep, FIVE Box Tops on every item), so this magnet served as a nice reminder to snip them all out!
