Primitive Magnets

Good evening to all.  Today has been one of those days. I worked and stayed busy all day and tonight can't see anything at all that I accomplished.  Stayed busy  doing routine things that had to get done, but nothing fun or exciting.
Holly called early and invited her Daddy and me for supper. Gave me something to look forward to.  We enjoyed a delicious supper with a special cube steak and gravy dish she prepared in the crock pot, homemade bread, mac and cheese, green beans, and a home made cake.  YUM!!  Making you guys hungrey?  Thanks Holly and Darbee.  Enjoyed our evening.
Thought I would share with you a few pictures of the primitive magnets I managed to get done a while ago.
Here are a few of the supplies needed to do the project. Sorry I had already used up the magnets before I thought to take a picture, so the package is empty.

You need the clear glass flat marbles from the Dollar tree, Modpodge, pictures out of old magazines, card stock, magnets, and hot glue gun. Lay the marble on picture, cut out, using modpodge glue to marble.  Let dry completely, I waited overnight.  Then cut out a backing from card stock paper and modpodge to back.  This step you do not have  to do, if you don't mind the  magazine page showing.  I then lightly sanded the edges to smooth out when the backing was dry.  Add  magnet with hot glue gun,,, and you have a prim magnet

I decided to diplay mine on a piece of tin when packaging  so they would not get lost in the bags.

This are quick and easy and a great prim gift to share with friends.
Hope all of you have had a great Monday and have a safe and fun week ahead.
