Here are the instructions on how to make these Easy DIY Magnets:

1. I used a 1 inch circle punch to cut out circles of some fun scrapbook paper.

2. I bought the glass part at Ben Franklin -big pack for around 3 dollars(you can get both large and small-I like the large best-but I guess it depends on where you are putting the magnets.) I also bought the magnet part at Ben Franklin-8 for around $3. (You could probably find this at any craft store and maybe even Walmart)

3. I used a sponge paint brush to apply mod podge to the paper side you will see through the magnet. Then I pressed it to the glass part and held it for a minute. Let it dry for a moment.

4. Hot glue the magnet to the back of the glass with paper. And that is it! Super easy and very cute!

    What kind of glass is that? Are they the glass beads that go in the bottom of a vase? Just wondering what section of the craft store the are in! Please let me know. I love them!

  5. Happy Mommy,
    Yes they are the glass beads/rocks for the bottom or vases. I have even found them at Target. One bag will last a while
