These are a few of the glass bead magnets i made.... i used pictures of animals from a book that was being tossed away by my work.

there's a ladybug, spider wasp, koala bear head, and flamingo's head...it's a bit tough to see

These look great!   A one of my friend's son would love these he is a real buggy kiddo!

There is probably an easy answer out there for this question but I'm stumped.  How do you make these?  How do you get the paper (and therefore magnet) to stick to the glass? What type of glue do you use?

I love these magnets - I'm going shopping for kids and flower books (used)!

first i punched the pictures with a circle punch, and then i used gem-tac to glue the pictures to the glass.  after that i cut little felt circles out, and glued that on top of the picture i glued on, so the glue from the magnet wouldn't leak through to the picture.  i used some real strong E6000 for the magnets to make sure they wouldn't fall off.  you could probably use some thicker card stock or something instead of felt, cause those took a long time to cut out, cause my punch wouldn't cut through the felt.... i ended up making a lot of them for gifts and putting them in a little tin.  thanks for all the positive feedback!

Thanks for the info - I never would have thought about gem-tac (I have some in my closet!!  Grin) or the layer between the pic and magnet!

Thanks again!
