|Finished Glass Magnets|
Feeling the spirit of the season and I am making small holiday gifts.
Picked up 1/2 glass beads from the local craft store.
The same ones used in a vase for flowers.
These are not perfectly round and have natural markings in them. I am going for a more organic look.
If you would like clear and perfectly round half glass beads you can find resources on Etsy.
Pick the glass beads you are going to use for your project.
Put a dot of Mod Podge on the bead and place it on your choice of paper, scrap booking has a nice thickness to it. You can cut things out of books, magazines or just use a piece of your own art. I cut some stock from my cards and used scrap booking paper for my magnets.The Mod Podge goes on white but dries clear. As you place the glued bead on the paper it spreads to cover the back of the bead. Give the Mod Podge enough time to dry before the next step.
Next cut paper with your scissors close to the edge, twirl the bead as you hold it with your thumb and index finger as you cut.
Next place the magnet back (also found at your local craft store) with the Mod Podge.
A dot will do.
I used a to and from stamp on plain paper to personalize each gift.
Packaged and ready to go.
