Marble Magnets

This is the perfect craft for those of us needing a creative outlet that’s easy on our wallets.

The Fixins’:
  • ¾” or 1” flat marbles (can be found at Michaels, Jo-Anns and sometimes the Dollar Tree)
  • ¾” magnets (DO NOT go cheap on these -the stronger the better. Again, try Michaels.)
  • Crazy Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Magazines, newspaper or pictures (pictures of family members actually make great gifts – Grandparents will eat them up!)

What To Do:
Step 1: Using the marble, trace and cut out your desired image.

Step 2: Add a small dot of silicon sealer Crazy Glue to the picture and glue to the flat part of the marble.

Step 3: Glue the magnet to the back side of the picture.

Step 4: Place on a flat surface and let dry.

Step 5: Trim any excess picture around the edges to smooth the corners.
Step 6: If this is a gift, wrap in and Altoid like tin and give!
