Tutorial:Marble Magic

Today I am putting my first ever tutorial up here! I will be showing you how to make cute magnets (or even earrings!)

You will need:
-some mags
-a magnet sheet
-craft glue (I used Sobo craft and fabric glue)
-some clear, glass, flat bottomed marbles. I found mine at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section

Go through your magazines and pick out cool patterns, pictures, textures anything you think would look good. What I do to see if they look good is to lay the marble on top of the picture I am considering like this.

Then cut out all your chosen pictures

Glue the marbles to your cut outs, let dry and then trim to fit the marble

If you are making a magnet, cut out a piece of the magnet sheet that will fit on the back of your marbles and glue together ( I recycled an old magnet;)

And now you have an adorable magnet! They're cute, easy to make, and very addicting

You could make earrings, magnets, glue them on a mirror or picture frame and hundreds of other things!
