Let’s Make a Magnet

Drum roll please . . . introducing my first ever on-line tutorial. I’m so glad you like the little magnet best fishes card (here), so for you visual learners (like me) here’s some more detailed instructions. We’ll do this as a two-parter beginning with the magnet, but I won’t leave you in suspense as long as that last Grey’s Anatomy episode.

Img_0650 Our supply list (again, just for the magnet) includes flat bottom glass marbles, Very Punny stamp set, BasicGrey Magnetic Snaps. scrap of Winter White card stock, Stampin’ Write markers (Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Summer Sun, More Mustard), StazOn Jet Black ink pad, 1-1/4" circle punch, and Crystal Effects. For extra credit you can add two-way glue and Stampin’ Glitter.

Begin by stampin’ the little fish (we’re calling him Nemo) in the jet black StazOn ink. We’re using StazOn because it won’t run when we color with the markers or add the wet adhesive. He’s looking pale, so give Nemo and his bubbles a little color with the markers.

Apply just a little bit of two way glue and then sprinkle some stampin’ glitter on Nemo for extra credit. Use the syringe flick on the back of Nemo to get rid of the extra glitter.

Turn your circle punch upside down so you can center the image, and punch Nemo out (be gentle).

Make sure your marble is clean, but bear in mind that these marbles naturally have lots of defects, such as cracks and bubbles – gives them that all-natural look. They’re also in unpredictable shapes, so you made need to trim down your Nemo-round-disk. You don’t have to be too particular though, the marble is very forgiving. Add Crystal Effects to the bottom of the marble and then slap Nemo on there, face down.

Now, grab your BasicGrey magnetic snaps. You can find these little card-stock thin magnets at scrapbook stores, though the two near me say they’re having a hard time keeping them in stock. I did a quick google search on "BasicGrey Magnetic Snaps" and found several sources. Img_0658 

The magnet snaps come with an adhesive backing, so just adhere your (+) charged disk to the back of Nemo.

Drum roll . . . WahLah . . . Nemo is swimming on your fridge.

Tomorrow, same time, same channel. We’ll add Nemo to our card. Swim safe.  Lin

    Thanks, for showing and telling us how to do the glass magnets. I needed the directions spelled out for me. I have everything except the magnets, so guess I should make some.
