~~~~~~~How to make the magnets~~~~~~~~
- paper, magazine photo's or family photo's will also work! Just make sure they are small enough designs to fit behind the flat back marble.
-Scissor / Xacto Knife
-Silicone, clear glue for glass. I used Decorators Solution, Clear Translucent Dimensional Silicone.
-Super Strong magnets. I used Neo Magnets (Neodymium Magnets) that came 4 to a pack for $2.99. But you can also find less expensive ones that are nice and strong also.
- Bag of flat back clear glass gem/marbles, I found at Hobby Lobby.
I just used the marble to trace/cut around with my Xacto, but I found this handy template in my art supplies that works also.... but is not necessary.
Start to press down on it gently so the gel moves to all edges.
I work mine around a little if I have to so the gel gets all the edges of the paper.
Once dry, you can trim any excess paper from around the marble with your Xacto if needed.
Let dry completely before using the finished magnet
for maximum strength.
You can see the two types of magnets I've used.
The small silver one is the Neo Magnet... the larger black one
is the less expensive type, but just as strong.
You can use old Altoids tins or I got this at Michael's Crafts
in the check out.
It's a tin that would hold a gift certificate for a gift.
Don't forget to enter for the giveaway!! I'll post the winners in the evening of February 28th.
Enjoy being a mom all day!
