Did you know you can make adorable fridge magnets with those flat glass marbles and ModPodge (both from the dollar store)? It’s so easy and perfect for teacher gifts, Christmas presents, party favors, and more! Just use your favorite scrapbook paper, stickers, photos, or pretty much anything you want to display.

Here’s what I ended up with:

DIY Personalized Magnets -- ModPodge and your fave images, patterns, stickers, behind a clear glass stone

WHAT YOU NEED:

WHAT YOU DO:

Cut circles from scrapbook paper, photos, etc., to fit behind glass stones. I used a scalloped circle paper punch, but you could use scissors as well.

Using a paintbrush, brush Mod Podge on the front of your circle the attach to the back of the stone (like you are putting a photo in a frame, so the image you want shows through). The Mod Podge will eventually dry clear, FYI.

After the Mod Podge has dried, attach a magnet with hot glue to the backside of your paper, photo, etc., then let glue harden.

Voila!
