Feeling crafty: Glass magnets

I went to Michaels today, to get the stuff needed to make the glass magnets. I'll end up ordering glass tiles and magnets online, but I bought enough to get started.

Because Michaels didn't carry the tiles I was looking for, I ended up choosing some of those larger, flat backed glass gems, and they worked out great!

Here's my first set of magnets :) This set might not go up online - I have some fine tuning to do around the edges of the scrapbook paper (Brad thinks I might be able to soften up the edges with some fine grit sandpaper), and if not, I'll just use them on my own fridge!

Today was a super crafty day for me.

  1. I think they came out great and I'm so glad you've blogged about this. In these financially lame times for my husband and me, I think I may run out and grab some fixings to do this myself and use the finished products as Christmas gifts (if I can do it frugally enough).

  2. Oh its cheap to make. Magnets and glass gems were about 10 cents each, midget lodge and a sponge brush cost maybe $6, and I just used scraps of Scrapbook paper. And a tube of superglue, that's like $2.

  3. I have no idea what a midget lodge is, but I'm assuming it can be found somewhere like Michaels? This just might be my first attempting at crafting....
