 Supplies Needed

  For Large Bubble MagnetsLarge Clear Glass Gems, Diamond Glaze Adhesive, 1 1/4″ Craft Magnet or Lg Thin Ceramic Magnets, Stickers, Photos, & E6000 for attaching magnet.  A Fiskar’s Circle Cutter works great for cutting perfect circles!

   For Small Letter Bubble MagnetsSmall Clear Glass Gems, Diamond Glaze, 1/2″ Adhesive Craft Magnets*, Small Letter Stickers, Photos, etc. 

*If you are wanting the finished magnets to hold paper or items on metal surface, we recommend using 1/2″ ceramic magnets.  The 1/2″ Adhesive Craft Magnets will only be strong enough to hold the bubble magnet itself. 

 Directions

 1)  Clean both sides of glass gem.

2)  Cut photos, fabric, scrapbook paper, wall paper, company logo, etc, into perfect 1 1/4″ circles using the Fiskars Circle Cutter (for small gems cut 1/2-5/8″ circles).  Small scissors also work well.  Or use pre-cut stickers!  We used round ABC stickers.

 

 3)  Apply enough Diamond Glaze Adhesive to the top of the photo (image, sticker, fabric, wallpaper, company logo, etc) to cover when gem is pressed down.  Press flat side of gem on top of image.  Do your best to work out air bubbles.  Allow to dry. 

  4)  Attach a 1 1/4″ Craft Magnet or Large Thin Ceramic Magnet to back of photo with E6000 Adhesive or Diamond Glaze Adhesive.  For Small Bubble Magnets attach 1/2″ magnet.  Only a small amount is needed.  Allow to dry.
