Make magnets from stickers
You will need:
the large clear, glass pebbles (don't buy the iridescent ones, it makes it hard to see the stickers)
stickers small enough for the pebbles
Mod Podge + foam brush
magnets (usually these are too heavy for sheet magnet, so I use the small round discs)
Place your stickers on the card stock (trust me, use card stock, not paper.) far enough apart that you can place a pebble over each one and they won't overlap. Using the foam brush, coat the back, flat area of the pebble with Mod Podge. Place over the sticker and press firm, getting out all of the air bubbles. Allow to dry, this actually took a couple of days for me until the Mod Podge dried clear. When it is dry, hot glue the magnets to the back. Two years later and we still love them. Have you ever made magnets this way?
