Spring Magnets

I have been meaning to post this project for a while now but I have been pretty busy this past month! I love making these magnets they are quick and easy to do and they would make great gifts for people too.
Spring Magnets!
Things You  Will Need:
Glass Beads, Diameter 1.25" (Amount varies, depending on how many you want to make)
Magnets, Diameter = 3/4" (Amount varies, depending on how many you want to make)
Mod Podge
Colorful paper
Hot Glue Gun + Glue

Step-By-Step How To:

Things you need!
Missing: Hot Glue Gun!
Note: You don't need that much paper, since the glass beads are so small! I just put it there to show the variety of color and designs you can use :)
1) Trace the glass drop on to a piece of paper.
2) Cut it out
3) Trim the edges so that the bead covers the paper properly.

1) Cover the  paper with mod podge,  then lay the paper (the side with mod podge) on the glass drop
2) After placing the paper on the glass drop cover it with mod podge, making sure to cover the edges well.
3) Wait for it to dry

Add some hot glue to the magnet and press it down on the back of the glass drop.

Add stickers if you wish!
That's it! Wasn't that easy?

 Hope you guys enjoy making these!
