Saturday Super Savings - Homemade Magnets

My sister just got a job this year as an elementary school teacher. Yeah! Big blessing, long story.
So I asked what I could do for her to help her get her room ready. She came over and we cut a ton of stuff on my Cricut for her walls. She also asked for some magnets. It has taken me awhile, but here you go!
This is my favorite. Cute cow!
Instead of going to the store and spending a few bucks for one magnet make a bunch for a few bucks. Super Savings!
At Michael's I got a bag of glass marbles. They are flat on one side, round on the other.

Depending on the size of your marbles, mine are huge, cut a circle to fit on the flat side. Use anything you want. I used pretty papers and stamped images.

Use Mad Podge and glue it to the back. Be very sparse with the glue!

I got some magnetic buttons at Walmart. They were about $2.00 for 50. You need to use a good magnet, none of that strip stuff. They just aren't strong enough to hold the marbles up, let alone hold up papers.

Once the glue is dry, hot glue the magnet on the back.

Ta Da! Cute cow!

Here is a bunch I made.
Have fun!
