Glass Magnets

I love magnets, but the cute ones are always so expensive. I decided it was time to make my own. I headed out to my local Michael's and starting looking for what I could use. I found some glass pebbles for $2.99. I knew these were exactly what I was looking for.

I then found some fun scrap booking paper that had small patterns. I didn't want to use patterns that were too big because I was cutting out such small circles.

I sat down to some home decorating shows and started tracing the pebbles on my paper and cutting out the circles.

Then I took out my Mod Podge and glued the circles to the back of the pebbles. After they dried I trimmed off the extra paper that hung over some of the edges and put on a extra coat of Mod Podge to the back.

The last thing to do was to attach magnet strips. I chose to go for a cheaper option and not get the super magnets. They stick to the fridge fine, but they may not be able to hold big papers all by themselves.

Aren't they pretty?

These turned out amazing!
