Thrifty Thursday: Homemade Shiba Inu Magnets!

As a dog owner, I am constantly looking for new products or designs that show off I am a proud Shiba Inu owner. Most people have never even heard of a Shiba Inu since they are so rare. This is a big problem when us Shiba owners want to show off our most prized possessions. I took it upon myself to create my own Shiba merchandise :)

If you would like to know how to make your very own Shiba Inu magnet, then please keep reading!

First I started off with a trip to my local crafts store, Michaels.

These are the materials you will need:

  • Sheets of foam in various colors that you feel best suit the design you want
  • Fabric adhesive glue to secure the pieces on well
  • A roll of magnetic tape to cut as you wish
  • Scissors or maybe an xacto knife would work better
  • Model Shiba Inu that I got from google images
Don't forget to use a coupon when buying anything from Michael's, you can always find one online!

I started off with my cut outs:                 

Trace the outline

Trace and cut out the tail and chest pieces:        

Cut out the mouth piece:


I freehanded the ears, but feel to cut out      
and trace them if it's easier for you:

 Glue on the ears and mouth pieces:

Attach nose, eyes, tongue, and feet pieces.
Then I pop in the freezer for 10 mins so
everything is sealed together:

If you just want to make the face, which is a million times easier, this is how:

Start off with your foam and your cut out:

Trace and cut out:

Make pieces for eyes, eyebrows, nose, whiskers and mouth and attach:

Here are the two completed magnets!:
