Monday Made It {Decorative Magnet Tutorial}

Today's Monday Made It is all about creating magnets!
These could be used for SO many things in your classroom.
Lunch count
I plan on using mine for a commitment chart that corresponds with our district wide discipline program. 

Here is what you will need for this project:
Scrapbook paper
Clear glass marbles with a flat back
Glue (I used E6000)
Round magnets

Step 1:
Trace marbles on the back of your scrapbook paper.

Step 2:
Cut out traced circles.
Tip: make sure to cut them out smaller so they fit onto the back of the marble without overlapping its edge.

Step 3: 
Place drop of glue on flat part of marble.
Spread glue out. (I used my finger)

Step 4: 
Set cut out circle of scrapbook paper face down onto glue.
Turn marble over.
Press down to get out air bubbles and adhere paper.

Step 5:
Allow paper to set into glue. I let mine sit for about an hour.
TakeModpodge and brush over edges of scrapbook paper.
Let the Modpodge dry. Mine sat for about 3 hours.

Step 6:
Place glue on one side of magnet.
Spread with finger.
Press onto scrapbook paper on back of marble.
Let the glue set. 
Mine set over night.

Step 7:
Depending on what you want to do with the magnets, you may be done at this point.
I took a paint pen and wrote numbers on each.

At this point you are officially done!

Thanks for stopping by to see my magnet tutorial!
