Totally doing this. You got me hooked with the sploodge!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

I made about a hundred of these at a DIY party last sunday and instead of cheap dollar store magnets, I went to Michaels and bought little round magnets to glue on the back. They are MUCH stronger... they can hold up...like... two pieces of paper at a time! WOW!

Hey! Thanks so much for giving me a heads up on where to get some stronger magnets. I just happened to be at the dollar store and they just happened to have everything I needed for this crafty endeavor, so it was definitely an instant gratification thing. I didn't realize until I that my "photo magnet" sheets were hardly strong enough to hold up little glass globs. (But they're pretty and that's all that matters!!) Still, it would be awesome if they were useful, too, mirite?

I heart mod podge.

Those are cool, thanks for the tut. BTW I am obsessed with the office! My hubby has been gone for a month and almost nightly I put the kids to bed and put on an office dvd and crochet until I'm tired!  Smiley It never stops being hilarious! Great job on the magnets!

One of the magnets is Dwight's face, didja see?!

I love the office. I got all of these awesome office magnets from the dollar bins at target. Including some post-it notes that have Dwight on them holding a bottle of water and saying "The Shrutes produce very thirsty babies." which I bought for my boyfriend cuz he loves The Office and I love him. Yay!

I heart mod podge.

These are great! I love marble magnets.
Just a note for those who will be making them -- You don't have to use Modge Podge. I used E-6000 glue, because I have it around the house. Any clear glue (think rubber cement) will work.

I love making these too!! totally addicting Grin  I found that the sheet magnets werent strong enough as well and found the stronger round ones at a dollar store ( where I by everything!!!) oh and totally love the office 2!

So you, could spend the morning walkin with me, quite amazed. As I am unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed.

you know- i also find it helps to make a splooge noise when you press down.  and sing the swiffer song when i clean my house.

seriously though- awesome project.  i have magnets like this that i did not make, but bought on clearance at target.  i should so make some.  do you think the colored glass globs would work just as well? like say a lightish color?

I was just thinking about this... the glass globs that I bought are slightly iridescent.  And I tried to make magnets with dark pictures and the shininess just sort of masked the image, making the magnet mirror-like. But I think a black and white kind of image would look really nice with a colored glass glob. And, just using your own good crafty judgment- some dark or colored pictures might come out better as well. I'll have to try that when I have the time. And a lot less homework!

I heart mod podge.

Woot woot Righteous babe!!

These are awesome. I tried going for a similar effect with resin and it was impossible...the resin kept getting all bubbly cause apparently I'm not good at pouring resin. But I think I could brush some mod podge on a piece of glass! Yes!
