I recently found this blog with a great idea on how to transform those "business" type magnets into a stylish magnet using embellishments, soup can lids(I would only do this if you have one of those under the lid can openers...if you don't have one of those...seriously go get one!!) and any type of craft paper!! You can go here to get the tutorial!! Here is how I did mine...
First I made some homemade mod podge
(not sure if it did anything...but...who cares!!)
Then I took my soup can lid...
(notice the nice non sharp rim...hhmmm?!)
Then I used another can to trace my circle
(making sure the size can i am using the lid off of will fit just inside that lid...like if you were gonna stack them)
I had some scrapbook paper on hand so that's what I used...You could use construction paper, newspaper, magazine pages...or even just a photo!!! Wowza!! What possibilities!!
After cutting out my circles...I placed them inside the can lid and did a few dobs of glue...If you know me AT ALL...you know I used my HOT GLUE GUN!!!hehe!
Then I mod podged over that...like I said..not sure if that did anything..but I like to pretend I'm a seasoned crafter...and I think all seasoned crafters have used mod podge...and I hadn't yet...so now I have!!
Let the mod podge dry...
this is now a good time to probably figure out what your gonna embellish this with...
(I don't believe I have shared this bit of information with y'all yet...I am not a planner...I start projects having NO idea what the end result will be...I just go with the flow!!! YUP...that's me..go with the flow kinda gal!! so..there..now ya know!!)
I looked through my buttons... see the one on top??
and found this left over ruffle...ooh...the ideas are comin now!!
and I went to town...the ideas started "flowing" in
(ya know..go with the "flow" haha)
sorry...i couldn't help myself!!
I cut my ruffle to the size i needed and attached with hot glue...then I hot glued the big button in the middle...THEN...I found a couple more cute little buttons...and did this...
glued it onto the back...
So there you have it!!! Now don't forget to save those can lids...ANY size!!
and if you don't have one of those fancy under the lid can openers...GO GET ONE!!! ;~)
and...REMEMBER...this craft came from Twelve Crafts Till Christmas go show the girl some love!!
Have a Blessed Day!!!
