I picked up these glass marbles from Ben Franklin many months ago when I saw how they made them into cute magnets. I finally dragged them out last night to try my hand at it...and couldn't stop!! I decided to make the whole bag because once they go back into my craft bin...they may never come out again!! Then I thought Mother's Day would be the perfect time to do a giveaway...
It's just a tiny little thing...but, if you would like to win one just leave me a comment by midnight on Saturday, May 9. Tell me the best Mother's Day gift you've ever given or received (or hope to receive!!). I'm also working on some kind of holder/container for these magnets, but thought I'd better post the magnets first, since time is short. You won't get the magnets by Mother's Day...but, at least I can announce the winners on Mother's Day!! There are 20 magnets, so I'll draw 20 winners at random and announce their names on Sunday, May 10.
To make the magnets, I traced around the edge of the marble on some printed paper and cut it out. I stamped, colored and cut some images and glued them on the printed paper. Then I spread clear glue all over the top of the stamped image (I used Tombow Mono Aqua glue), and attached it to the marble. I brushed some Mod Podge over the back and attached a magnet. Then I smeared some Stickles Crystal glitter glue over the top of the marble. Here's a closer look:
Good luck to all...I'll post a picture of the magnets in their holders when I finish them
