Magnet Makeover

Before you toss out those ugly magnets you keep getting from random places, consider giving them a makeover. That is what we did with this large "advertisement" magnet and these three broken magnets.

For the large magnet:
1. Peel off the glossy top layer of the magnet to expose the paper underneath.
2. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge.
3. Place a piece of pretty paper on top (we used Mint Julep).
4. Add rub-ons (we used Mimosa's words and designs).
5. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge on top.

For the small magnets:
1. Pull the magnet part off a broken magnet or buy some.
2. Add an epoxy sticker (we used Mimosa's).
This is the same technique Dotty used for these Dill Blossom magnets.

I love it. It helps me feel like I'm not throwing SO much away. THanks!

Yay! What a great idea.

Used paper from the Enroute collection, paper and epoxy stickers from the Christmas Mint collection, stamped text (Stampin' Up), and an unmounted stamp image (Attainable Treasures) with dye-based ink to transform an old magnet into a new treasure.
