Glass Gems (Dollar Tree)
Scrapbook paper (Or use book pages, comic strips or other upcycled papers)
E6000 Glue
Mod Podge (Dollar Tree)
Rare Earth Magnets
3/4" Circle Punch (or Scissors)
Galvanized Snowflakes (Oriental Trading)

Step One:

Use the circle punch or scissors to cut out the scrapbook paper. Cut out pieces that have interesting shapes. The glass gems will magnify the image on the paper beautifully.

Step Two:

Place the cut circles on a disposable work surface and spread them about an inch or so apart.

Step Three:

Use the E6000 glue to adhere the glass gems to the scrapbook paper circles. This part is really important, because there are imperfections in the glass gems, the E6000 smooths them out and turns the glass gem into the perfect magnifying glass.

Add a daub of glue to the flat side of the glass gem, then press it down on the scrapbooking paper.

Press down firmly to spread the E6000 glue across the paper until the it goes from side to side.

Repeat the gluing for each of the glass gem marble magnets you are making.

Then let the glass gems sit for at least 4 hours for the glue to dry.

Step Four:

Use a small pair of scissors to trim the circles on the back so they are flush with the glass gems. This step is extra...I just like the finished product more if it the paper is flush to the glass gem.

Step Five:

After trimming the paper, use a paintbrush and the Mod Podge to coat the back of the paper. This step is also extra, but keeps the E6000 from staining through the scrapbook paper when adhering the magnet.

Just brush a layer of Mod Podge on the backside of all the gems. It's just one extra step that makes these look better and last longer. Then let the Mod Podge dry for about an hour.

Step Six:

Finally it's time to adhere the magnets to the back. Rare Earth Magnets are strong and powerful...but very brittle, so gluing them to gems makes them last longer and not break. It gives you something to hold onto when moving the magnet and has super strength. Use a dot of E6000 glue and stick a magnet on the back. Keep the glass gems away from each other so the magnets don't attract each other during the curing process. Let them dry again for at least 4 hours...or overnight.

Then stick a few cute magnets to the galvanized snowflake ornament for the perfect handmade gift! The recipient can use the magnets and hang the snowflake on the tree too! It's a great presentation for this amazing handmade gift.
