homemade glass magnets & magnet board

Inspiration: I wanted to go buy cute magnets like these cause I'd seen them but Kerstin decided we could make them ourselves :)

Here's mine:
Finished magnets

Finished magnet board

What you need:
Strong magnets
Hot glue
Modge podge
Scrapbook paper
Glass rounds pieces (medium or large)

*I got all of these at Hobby Lobby except the magnets - theirs aren't strong enough - try Walmart for magnets.

Magnetic metal piece
Picture frame

*I got a magnetic metal dry/erase board from target and took it apart and cut it down to fit inside this frame I bought at Hobby Lobby. Frames from Hobby Lobby are often 1/2 off or you can try D.I. for really cheap ones but you may have to paint them the color you want.
