Photos = Magnets

Posted by lori . 3 Comments


All of June’s crafts will be kid-friendly, in honor of “School’s Out For Summer!”


Kaboose – Family Marble Magnets



Flat-backed clear marbles

Mod Podge






1.  Place the marble over the face and trace around it with a pen.

2.  Cut out the face inside the trace line.

3.  Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge (or any decoupage medium) onto the flat back of the marble.

4.  Place the picture (face down) on the marble, or press the marble gently down onto the cut out photo…whichever is easiest for you.  Allow to dry.

5.  Glue a magnet to the back and let dry.  I recommend using a super strong magnet since the marbles are heavy.

6.  What a great way to use extra or “not so great” photos.

    That’s a great idea! Yours turned out really cute, too!

    Bunny says there should be at least one with a Greyhound on it, though! 😛

  • Actually I thinks there should be one withs PUDDLES…bwhahahaha! See, I is just full of ideas!

    Sorry, my mum has been a fruitcake and can’t seem to gets a handle on her new schedule…ugh!

    these are really good looking! Would be fun to create a series of school picture ones for a grad or a grandparent. Or for kids to create for their friends. Love the idea!
