I’m not going to pretend that I’m the most crafty gal on the block, but since we moved to a neighborhood that is within a two-mile radius of four arts and craft stores (I am not kidding, count ‘em: Michael’s, JoAnn’s, Blick Art & Craft, Hobby Lobby), I have
reluctantly embraced the DIYer way of life.
These magnets look adorable on my fridge, and would also be a cute gift for a friend. Even better, they were incredibly easy to make (even for a novice crafter like me!) and require minimal supplies: decorative glass gems, craft glue, a circular paper punch, magnets and an old magazine (or any publication to punch small images from). I originally intended to use images from pieces of scrapbook paper for the magnets, but I ended up preferring the look of random text pulled from a magazine.
