I signed up with a pal to do a craft show and came up with magnets as one thing to bring (that I hoped would be different than most things there...and I didn't see any others there - woot!)
Here's what I came up with:
Some Halloween ones, images from a fabric catalog -
These were craft paper that had clear words (from a scrapbook sheet of paper) on top -
Some familiar faces -
And then some glitter ones - shapes from my resin mold -
In total, I made 82 (yup, I counted) all unique but I don't want to overwhelm with pictures.
Quick steps for this easy project, just:
1) Acquire bottle caps - friends in bands are awesome for such contributions
- mine donated a fantastic variety of colors.
2) Cut out images - I bought a 1" (round) hole punch and made quick work of this.
3) Seal images - I used decoupage glue - critical step or resin bleeds through - see poor Hale's face.
4) *In a well ventilated area* - mix resin and pour a bit into each cap - I use a plastic bottle for more control.
5) Make sure images are properly covered with resin, arrange image and glitter as desired, and address any bubbles.
6) After resin has cured - hot glue the magnets onto the back (I used 3/4" from Michael's.)
What do you think of mine?
They got a lot of great feedback at the show and now friends want to commission me to do sets with desired images.
Thanks for looking!
