Tonight my project was making magnets! I found some clear, round, glass rocks at JoAnn's. Make sure you get ones with a flat bottom. These are super easy, super cute and make for great gifts and fun for the kids! I just looked through my scrapbook paper and even made good use of some of my scrap pieces. I set the rock on top of the image I wanted on my magnet, traced a circle around the edge, cut it out (cut inside the line for a better fit) and used my CTMH liquid glass to adhere the paper to the rock. Once the liquid glass was dry, I used my exacto knife to trim off the excess paper from around the edge of the rock and then super glued a magnet to the back of the rock and BAM...we have a handmade magnet!

  1. I've made these as well- and Elmer's glue works just as well - b/c it dries clear. I am planning on doing this craft with our MOPS group (have you heard of them), it is a Christian based Mother's of Preschoolers group. i am the Creative Activities Director for our group in Germany. I cannot find the glass blobs here, what a pain. I made them with smaller glass blobs I had on hand, but hope to find the big ones! I enjoy what I read so far, and will check back to see what you are up to!

  2. these are too cute. My friend and I are looking for these glass rocks, we can't find them. Could you tell me where you got them?

    Thank you for sharing your talent.
