I always looked at those magnets and thought, "I could make these. It looks like fun too!"
Fast forward to 2009 and voila!
Marble magnets and a tasty recipe for chicken and rice!
I just glued some little circles of cute scrapbook paper to the back of a glass marble (I can't remember what kind of glue it is, but it's very strong and also messy - it was in the floral section and had pictures of glass marbles glued to a vase on it...). Then once it was dry I hot glued it to a magnet - just one of those round black ones, I think I used half inch ones, maybe three-quarter. If I ever make any more I'll glue the marble/paper piece to the magnet with the floral glue because I ripped a couple of the hot glued magnets apart trying to take them off of the fridge. I'm pretty sure I just wasn't patient enough to let my glue gun heat up all the way though, so the glue wasn't gluey enough.
Here are some neat ones I made using leftover paper scraps from our wedding programs, and some real flowers that I pressed myself! (I have a whole box of pressed flowers with no purpose. So sad!!)
"We look better in person!"
After making a few magnets, I still had a whole bag of glass marbles, and I was so excited to be using my scrapbook paper that I went a little overboard...
Anyone have any spare magnets???
