Easy DIY Item

Hello my Dears! As promised, I wanted to share another DIY project with you. I've mentioned it before but whenever I get together with the family, especially during holidays, I try to coordinate a project for us to work on together. It's a great way for us to make memories & have fun! This particular DIY project is perfect for families because it's super easy, super fun and includes {silly or serious} family photos.... FAMILY PICTURE MAGNETS!!


MATERIALS:
1. Clear Glass Stones {I found mine at the dollar store}
2. Round Magnets {from any craft store} 
3. Family Pictures {we used silly faces}
4. Super Glue

DIRECTIONS:

1. Use the clear stones to trace around the faces in the pictures. {Don't forget the pets!}
2. Cut out the traced faces.
3. Super glue the edges of the stone and glue to the front of the cut-out-faces.
4. Use super glue to glue the magnets to the back of the cut-out-faces.  
5. Use a pen to date the back of the magnet.
6. Apply to refrigerator and Voila... Fun Family Magnets!!
