I have finally finished making my marble magnets and I wanted to share the easy step-by-step instructions with all of you.
Supplies needed for this project:
~Clear glass floral marbles. The marbles must have flat backs. You can also substitute colored floral marbles if you do not plan on adhering cut out images to the back of the marbles.
~E-6000 Industrial strength craft adhesive
~Magazines, photographs, and scrapbook paper.
~1/2" Round craft punch
I was able to purchase all of the necessary supplies at Michaels.
Go through any old magazines, photographs, and scrapbook paper scraps you have lying around the house. Use your 1/2" punch to cut out circles. The marbles will distort the image so try looking at the image under the marbles before you start gluing.
Glue the paper circles to the bottom of the marbles. Allow time for the glue to dry before adding the magnets. Otherwise, the images will slide out of place.
Glue the magnets to the marbles. The finished magnets will need to dry for 24 hours before you can start using them.
If you don't feel like making your own marble magnets you can also purchase them on Etsy. With my button push-pins and marble magnets complete all I need to do now is finish my framed bulletin boards so that I can finally put them to use. As always I'd love to get your opinions on this project as well as any other suggestions or comments you may have.
