My mom and Magnets...

My mom came in to town this weekend!!

That means I had a clean house, food, and a craft partner for a few days.

While here, she needed to find a small, simple, and cute gift to give to her church class on Mother's Day.

So, we made 80 round glass magnets.

You're going to want to make some of these...
they're SO simple and SO adorable.

Here's a picture of the ones we made.

To make some of these, you'll need:
Clear, round glass gems (with flat backs)
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Some glue (Gorilla glue, E6000 glue, or a glue gun)
Note: Using a glue gun is the fastest and easiest way, but it is not the greatest at sticking).

First Step:
Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit the flat side of your glass gem.

Second Step:
Decoupage the paper to the gem. Let dry.
Should look like this...

Third Step:
Glue your magnet to the flat side of the gem.
Like this...

And that's it!
Now you have some cute magnets that took a mere 10 minutes to make!

I made an extra set of these.
If you don't want to make them, leave me a comment.
At the end of the week, I'll choose one commenter to keep my extra set of magnets!!
Check back at the end of the week to see if you're the lucky one.
