I made these for stocking stuffers a few years back. They're ridiculously easy and inexpensive to make. They are great little gifts to be given for favors at baby shower, bridal shower, or even maybe as a thank you.
What you need:
Decorative papers, such as wallpaper, wrapping paper, or magazine cutouts
Paper punch (1 1/2 and/or 3/4 inches)
Flattened glass marbles
Strong Round Magnets (1/2” and/or 3/4”)
1. Using a paper punch, cut out decorative paper rounds. Since the marbles are irregularly shaped, you may have to trim the rounds to match. You can also trace the glass marble onto the paper using a pencil and cut out the shape. You may also want to glue down a white round of cardstock first (junk mail comes in great here) as the glue can seep through your picture and show the dark magnet underneath if you don’t. It didn’t seem to affect my magnets; I used magazine pictures which are fairly flimsy.
2. Using your silicone glue, affix the printed side of the paper to a glass marble. Let the glue dry, and press out any bubbles.
3. Using your silicone glue again, affix a magnet to the back of the paper. Let dry a few hours before using. Packaged in small boxes or tins, the magnets make wonderful gifts.
