Materials I used:
- Clipart w/school logo
- Large, flat glass marbles - pack of 30/$1.00 @ Dollar Tree
- Round magnets - pack of 52/$5.97 @ Walmart
- Mod Podge
- Sponge brush
- Hot glue gun
- Wax paper to protect the table
|One page makes tons!|
I placed a marble over the clipart on the printed page to make sure I had my spacing and image size correct. I had to adjust the page a few times to get it just right. The marbles are smaller than they look, so check to make sure it is correct before you spend the time cutting. The clipart was cut so that it was smaller than the marbles.
|Thin layer of Mod Podge|
I used a sponge brush to apply a small amount of Mod Podge to the flat side of the marbles.
I placed the cut images in the center of the marbles and then, dabbed Mod Podge around the edges and over the top of the clipart. Don't worry, the Mod Podge dries clear.)
Now, the reason this qualifies as a #MyFavFriday project is because my favorite find this week was a packaging idea from Madigan Made that transformed the marbles into a brightly colored packages sure to delight! I started out with a package of metal washers from the hardware store, a package of blank index cards, a pack of Wilton treat bags (50/$2.50 @ Walmart by cake decorating supplies).
