These little magnets are really hot right now! If you are not into retro you can use anything to make these (wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, printed tissue paper).
What you will need:
- Clear Decorative Gemstones
- Double Sided Sticky Sheets (Heavy Duty)
- Low Temp Glue Gun
- Magnetic Sheets
- Wrapping Paper, Scrapbook Paper, Printed Tissue Paper or anything with a small design printed on it.
Instructions for the project: Start by choosing the design you wish to make into a magnet by laying a gem over the area to see how it looks. Keep in mind that the image will magnify under the gem. Carefully cut a 1″ piece of double sided adhesive. Remove the backing from one side and stick it firmly to the right side of the design. Then you can peel the backing from the top side and securely press the gem over the design. Cut another 1″ piece of double sided adhesive. Remove the backing from one side and stick it to the bottom of the gemstone over the back of the design. Peel the backing from the bottom side and firmly press a piece of magnet to the area. You will want to trim closely all the way around so the magnet does not show when you view the gem from the top.
