no one cares
not as creatively cool as I think I am...and someone is going to tell me
this wasn't a Larissa original idea
it is too simple of an idea
should I really show it here or start a craft/project blog already
everyone already knows how to do it
because I am a big chicken and never want to take new chances
So with one last "cluck", I have decided to say good bye to Larissa the Hen and and usher in the era of Larissa the Conquer of her fears. So with a deep breath (and hopefully some applause from those who know me best), I give you the
Pebble Magnet Tutorial
glass craft/vase rocks
pieces of super cute scrap paper
Have materials? Let's get started!
Turn the piece of paper you are using over so there are no pencil marks on the pretty side. You will have to trace out each pebble you are going to use separately as they are all different sizes. I suggest you number as you go and leave the pebbles in a row with coordinating numbers. Each pebble has a flat side and rounded side, trace flat side a little smaller than actual pebble. After you are all done, cut out and place with matching pebble.
Take out handy dandy Modge Podge. With craft brush, apply thin coat to the right side of one cut out.
Adhere paper to matching pebble, adjust so it fits best. Then press and hold making sure the glue holds. Then repeat on however many you have.
When all of your pebbles are Modge-Podged, get out your faithful glue gun. Then glue on each magnet directly to the back of your newly paper-covered pebble. I know people who also apply a thin layer of Modge Podge to the back before gluing the magnet on. I find this step unnecessary. The paper will stay on just as well without it.
Guess what! Now you are done! Find yourself a cute magnet board or head to the fridge (no not for a snack...although nothing like a congratulatory treat after finishing a craft) and start putting these babies up.
