Fun Magnets & Tutorial (Kaisercraft)

Hi Everyone

The last of my Technologic posts today and a tutorial to share too!
Please note that the contest previously detailed here has closed. You can see who won here.

Magnets
I LOVE these bright magnets! I have made a few sets and it is always fun to pick out small details in the paper patterns to make them. You can see a quick tutorial on how to make them below.


Magnets Tutorial

  1. Cut or punch circles of paper slightly smaller than the flat side of the glass dome
  2. Apply Mod Podge to the surface of the paper you want visible through the magnet and glue onto flat side of magnet
  3. When dry, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the other side o the paper (outside)
  4. Using a super-strong craft glue, stick a magnet to the underside and leave to dry
Magnet Board
This board was simply a cheap metal kitchen sign from the dollar store which I covered in paper and sealed with Mod-Podge. I then used various elements from the collection to decorate.
