I am wanting to make these for necklaces, what is the best qlue to use?  Also does anyone have suggestions for what to cover the back with once I add the wire hook?

Obviously you all know how to make them by now but since I had already made this tutorial for another message board I thought I'd share it here anyway:

Materials: Scissors (or a hole punch if you can find one the right size), clear glue, magnets (you can buy circle magnets the size of the marbles but they cost about 10 times more than a roll of magnet), marbles and some sort of picture

I used the stamps from one of those anoying buy "12 movies for the price of 1" ads:

Step 1: Cut out picture in the shape and size of your marble
Step 2: Glue picture onto marble

Step 3: Glue the magnet on top of the picture


They're so easy and adictive. Some people like to wait for the glue on thier picture to dry before glueing on the magnet to prevent bubles from forming between the picture and the marble. Personally I like to add the magnet when everythign is still wet because then I can smooth out any bubbles.

Nice tute and I never thought of using those ads before (we usually just lick them and stick them everywhere Grin)

Now I have got to go to Dollar Tree and see if I can find some of those "marbles"...they look really gorgeous with fabric! Great job you guys! Actually....I didn't see any that didn't look great!  I never heard of this before...my fridge has a lot of catching up to do! Grin

After the trip to Wal-mart and Dollar Tree.............
I found big "marbles" at the Dollar Tree, but they were kind of iridescent....my pictures didn't show up so well with them. I got some plain clear ones at Wal-mart...they are about 1/2 inch, but I really like this size. I used Mod Podge to put the pictures on and E6000 to glue big round magnets on...the pictures came from scrapbook paper and Japanese washi paper.


LOL I made the same ones!- must have bought the same scrapbooking paper. I made the Geisha girls and the women with hats too... try the Golden gate bridge- it works well.

Anyone want to swap alphabet ATCs?
« Reply #249 on: June 28, 2005 05:18:58 PM »

I just did a set of alphabet magnets for a swap, and then made a set for my toddler too. He's playing with them right now. He's nearly 2 and loves letters. Way better looking than the plastic ones scattered all over our apartment.
