Glass magnets cost pennies to create – and they make adorable DIY wedding favors.

You could make these with the plain  flat bottomed clear glass gems that you can find at the dollar store or from Michaels or any craft place. You can use just about any type of paper with an image or pattern that you like. I’ve seen some beautiful glass magnets made with origami paper and scrapbooking paper or even photos make really small .

Here’s the lowdown on what you need for DIY glass magnets:

Punch desired illustration.

Use Mod Podge to glue your punch-out onto the flat side of your clear glass gem. Once glued, add some Mod Podge to the back as well.

to glue magnet to the back of the glass gem. (Use a toothpick to spread the glue.)
