Craft foam is a fun material to work with. The bright colors are suitable for a variety of craft projects. Here is a simple project with steps on how to make foam magnets.
How to make toonish foam magnets:
Draw the outline of the item you have in mind on a foam sheet of suitable color. Here is the outline of a tomato.
Cut along the outline and cut out the piece of craft foam. Similarly for the leaf, green foam has been cut out and glued on the red piece.
Using a black permanent marker, an outline is drawn and the ink is allowed to dry. A few strokes are also drawn for a toonish effect.
Once the ink has dried well, flip the piece and glue on a piece of magnet. Ensure that the magnet is of appropriate size. Use a good adhesive that will hold well. Many adhesives do not work too well with foam sheets.
And we’re done with one foam magnet…!
