Pebble magnets turned into flower magnets

Last week we talked about making pebble magnets. Later on in the week, I had a bunch of dollar store flowers out to make hair pieces for my daughter when I decided to combine the two. Here is a cute, easy way to get flower magnets with your favorite sticker centers.
First of all, you will make your centers, just like you do with the regular jewel magnets. You will need Mod Podge, a foam brush, stickers, cardstock and the large pebbles.
Put the stickers onto your cardstock.
Add a layer of Mod Podge and then press the pebble down firmly to squish out all of the air bubbles.
You will be able to tell your pebble is dry when  the Mod Podge becomes transparent and you will be able to see the sticker better. Take a dollar store bunch of flowers and pull them apart until you have just a few petals. Make sure to pull the center out of the flower, so they will lay flat. First hot glue your layers of petals together. I did two layers on both of my flowers. and then glue your pebble into the center.
Then I hot glued a magnet on the back and I had cute flower magnets for my fridge.
Do you use magnets on your fridge?

I definitely like them made into flowers! I do like refrigerator magnets if they're a souvenir of someplace I've been, but mostly magnet pics of the family. :-) A flower or two wouldn't hurt.
