I got some different shaped small mirrors and covered them with blue painters tape.  I drew my design on and cut it out with an exacto knife, applied etching cream and left it on as per instruction.  After it was done etching, I washed it off, removed the tape and let them dry.  I used silver tape that is used on stained glass and covered the edges, then hot glued a small magnet to the back and Tadaa!!

cool i like that they are magnets too. id  love to have a go at glass etching sometime! is it just tape you used around the side? i was thinking to do something similar but with a clay backing and frame, that would probably explode in the oven though, heh!!

The tape I used around the side is metal tape that I found in the same section of the craft store I went to that had the stained glass paints.
