Dictionary Magnets with Crafty Words

 

I had a lot of fun making these and talking to all that sat down at the table with me. I really wish I would have had time to take pictures of each of them with their finished magnets!

Start out by identifying the word you want to use. Place your glass marble over the top of the word and trace it with a pen.

Cut the circle out, but cut inside the circle by about 1/8-inch. You want the paper to be small enough to fit on the back without any paper overlapping or sticking out the sides.

Place the marble on top of the paper and press it down. You will have a short window of time where you can reposition the paper, so get it where you want it, then turn the marble upside down. Paint a thin layer of decoupage medium onto the back. Let that dry for a couple of minutes.
