These little guys are so easy and fun to make.
They would be perfect for a tween/teen craft project.
Mod Podge (matte finish)
Small Paint Brush
Fabric Scraps
Clear Glass Rocks *clear is best, not pearl or colored
Round Magnets

Step 1: Turn the right side of fabric down and trace around your glass rock with your pen.

Step 2: Cut out each circle on the inside of the pen line so it doesn't show.

*Just a note, if you are using a fabric with a fun pattern you may consider placing the graphic in the center of your circle, as shown above.

Step 3: Apply a generous amount of Mod Podge to the front of your cut-out. Next press the cut-out onto the back side of your glass rock.

Step 4: Once your fabric is placed on the back, apply a generous amount of Modge Podge to the back.

Step 5: Apply the magnet while the Mod Podge is still wet. Allow to dry 24 hours face down (magnet side up)

Your image may appear blurry, but no worries, once the mod podge is dry it will be clear. You can also use a damp cloth to remove any excess modge podge that may be on the front or side of the rock.

Step 6: Complete. Find a spot to put your really cute magnets or give them away as a gift.
* You don't have to use fabric, you can use scrapbook paper, sheet music, old books, or print words/initials on paper...have fun.
