Marvelous Magnets with Cricut
Alright, I have a hoard of craft supplies. I’m guilty! I’ve been thinking it’s time to use them up before I buy any thing (much) else. I have a couple of bags of flat glass marbles and some round magnets that have been in the stash for a while so now it’s time to turn them into the DIY marvelous magnets with Cricut that I envisioned. I’ll show you how I did it too!

Let’s Get Started on These Marvelous Magnets
They are really simple to make especially with the Cricut Maker that cuts the circles out perfectly for you in a snap. More about making them after the materials list. You will need:
Begin the Magnets
To begin, choose the flat marbles that are totally clear and free of any imperfections such as cracks or bubbles. Print and cut your chosen designs for your magnets.
I have my designs in my resource library if you would like to use them and if not use a 1.25” circle and insert your own images.
The flat marbles are not perfect circles so you will need to sort through and find the ones that your cut images show through the best. I did mine one by one so as not to get my flat marbles mixed up. Spray the image face up with adhesive spray. Place it on the marble and adjust it to just the right spot. Press firmly to make the image perfectly visible through the spray.
Assemble the Magnets
Once the image is in place, smear a thin layer of E6000 on a magnet and attach it to the back of the flat marble. Press down slightly to adhere the magnet to the marble. Leave upside down until the E6000 is dry.
This took about half an hour to complete the six animal magnets. Super easy project for some super cute gifts! But wait, if these turned out so good, why not try some more?? Christmas is coming and I love snowmen so a set of them was in order. Ok, two sets, snowmen and snowmen faces. They turned out so well, I’m going to offer the faces at my Etsy Shop!
More Magnificent Magnets!
I can’t stop making these things! Next set are personalized with photos of my grand kids. Tot make your circle image, upload your photo and size it down to fit the circle then use the slice feature. This was a little tricky to do, but they turned out good enough. Print and cut and assemble. These are going to make great stocking stuffers! (They are really hard to get a decent photo)
Well, how about all those ideas? Are you inspired to try you hand at making these magnificent magnets with Cricut? Let me know what you create by sharing in the comments below.
