Hello Crafty Friends! These cute Mickey and Minnie magnets are a fun DIY to create with your Cricut cutting machine. They make the sweetest gifts since they feature pictures of your little ones. Earlier this year, I made magnets like these as party favors for my daughter’s Minnie Mouse birthday party. Since most of our guests were family members, these were a cute thank you for coming to our party. I finally got around to creating a tutorial for them. They’d not only be great for party favors or gifts but would also be a fun way to capture a recent Disney trip!

You only need a few supplies to create these, including paper and adhesive magnets. I used my Cricut Explore to do all of the cutting and created the design in Cricut Design Space. Below is the full tutorial!

How to Make Mickey and Minnie Mouse Magnets

Supplies Needed:

Cutting the Magnets in Cricut Design Space

Start by using my Design Space Project. It is set up to make one Mickey and one Minnie magnet. The extra gray circles can be used to cut your photos. I recommend cutting one of the gray circles out of cardstock. Then use it to cut your photos out by hand. This will give you more control over the part of the picture that will be seen on the magnet.

Once the pieces are cut out, use your scissors to cut the photos you will be using to fit in the frame. When I made these magnets earlier this year, I used pictures of my daughter wearing a sweet Minnie Mouse dress!

Assembling the Magnets

Once all of the pieces have been cut, it’s time to assemble the magnets. Glue all of the layers together using a glue stick. Start by gluing the top layer of mouse ears over the photo. Then glue the back on. Don’t forget to add Minnie’s bow to the Minnie Mouse ears!

Next, attach a magnet to the back of each mouse. I used adhesive magnets making this step super easy and quick!

The Mickey and Minnie magnets are done! They are so cute! This is a great project to make multiples of since they don’t take a lot of paper and your Cricut cutting machine can do all of the hard work.

I put each magnet into one of my paper purses and it made the sweetest party favor for our guests. I had different favor bags for the kids filled with stuff they’d enjoy, but since it was mostly adults, it was nice to give them something as a thank you for coming.

I haven’t shared our whole Minnie Mouse party yet, even though it happened months ago, but here is a picture of the food table. It really was a fun party to plan. I did everything a few days before the party and used my Cricut for most of the decorations. You can see I used the two Cricut images from making these magnets throughout the decorations!
