Marble Magnets

Yesterday, My friend Brittne and I spent the day making really cheap, easy magnets! After some trouble finding some of the things (and being to 5 different stores) it all was really easy, and went really quick! We found out trying a craft store first is your best bet on finding any of this!

We started with these
Bought some sticky magnetic strips

And started cutting tons of stuff out of magazines

It was tough to find pictures or letters that were the right size, so start saving your magazines! This was the part the took the longest. We also printed some pictures and logos off the internet that we knew we wanted and just couldn't find in the magazines (it only took us two tries to get the sizing right!)

After cutting out the picture, we glued the picture to the marble with some Elmer's scrapbooking glue. Then cut the magnet, and even though it was sticky on one side, we still used some hot glue just to be sure it wouldn't fall off. And these are what we got!


They look pretty sweet on the fridge too!

I think these would make for some fun alphabet magnets too, so that's one of my next projects.

  3. Thanks B.Gil! Gotta find something to fill my time! And youuuu I need to see SOMETIME in the near future! (By the way, "Gettin' crafty" was the other choice for the title of this post, but I wasn't "crafty" enough for that yet :))

    Ellen, I'm definitely going to do more. So we're going to have another crafting day!
