Stick 'em Up!

I had a craving for a fun, yet quick project.  I'd been wanting to tackle this one for some time and figured what better time than now...since I was in the mood to make something...anything...just had to make something.
Check out these fun glass tile magnets that I made.  I used some of my own scrap paper to make the pink & grey cherry blossom and purple & white swirls magnet.  The other 3 were created with free printables from PaperGlitter's Mod Collage.  I'm looking forward to using these guys.  I plan to stick 'em up wherever I can to hold small papers and other small items (these will not be fridge magnets...too cute, so they will only be used in my craft room, lol). 

What I used:
  • clear glass tiles (7/8")
  • decorative paper
  • magnets
  • epoxy glue
  • be sure to cover your work area to protect from any messy glue spills.
What I did:
  • cut paper in the shape of a square to make sure it fits the glass tile.
  • add epoxy glue to flat side of tile
  • press tile firmly to your paper to get rid of air bubbles
  • flip the tile over, add a thin layer of epoxy glue to back side to seal  paper for longevity
  • add magnet to back of tile 
  • allow to dry overnight
  • Stick 'em up somewhere!
VOILA!    ;o)
A fun and cute craft project that will satisfy your paper-craft craving!


  1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such a nice comment on my blog. Love these magnets, and your fun positive notes journals...welcome to blog land. I have become a follower and will check in on you often.


  2. Tina, Thanks for following me and checking out my new blog; glad you like the magnets and journals. Crafting takes me away (kinda like Calgon, lol). Happy card-making and blogging to ya. I'm a following you too. :o)

  3. Seriously? You MADE these?? I'm impressed!! Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!!

  4. Hey Charlene thanks for dropping in. Happy SITS Saturday to you too. Yep, I made 'em and had fun doing it too. :o) All it takes is a little time and supplies. (I guess this means I need to get out more if I'm enjoying making magnets. lol).

    Have an awesome weekend! :o)

  5. Quick, fun, and useful! My favorite kind of project. Really nice - I'm going to have to make some of these for my fridge.

    Thanks for visiting the Making Memories blog and commenting on my mini-album. I'm glad you liked it - I had a lot of fun making it.

  6. Hey Tenia,
    Thanks! I appreciate that.
    Next stop...your blog, Jazzy Paper Designs. :o)

  7. Oh, I love these! And this praise is coming from one who has more than her share of fridge magnets. SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

    That Sinking Feeling

  8. Hi Melissa, my SITS friend. :o)
    Thanks for coming by. :o) I appreciate the compliment...this was my first attempt. I'm gonna try more as soon as I find the perfect paper and maybe some larger/different shaped tiles too.

  9. stopping by from get your craft on. these are so cool!

  10. Stopping by from SITS. I think this is a craft I may actually be able to do! Will be stopping back by...take care!

  11. Hey Alana, thanks for visiting. :o) I'm sure you could do this one. This was a quick and easy job, but most of all it was fun. I was very pleased with the finished product.

  12. Oh we think alike! I bought glass stones from a local dept store and made magnets too! But I used magazine cut outs which i drew on for a quick project! I don't know where to find your great glass tiles here in the Philippines but they look really special! Patsy from

  13. These are so cute!! I'm a new follower!

    Thanks for visiting my blog :D

  14. These are adorable. My favorite restaurant uses something similar to these in a really adorable way. The "Bill tray" is a painted metal tray and they attach the bill with a cute magnet stone like yours. It's perfect since the best seats in the house are outside! It saves you from losing the bill in a rouge breeze!

  15. Hi Laura,

    That's such a great idea: Use the magnet to keep the bill from blowing away (and you know there's no way they'd want that bill to disappear - lol). Thanks for stopping by and sharing. :o)

  16. Thanks for the tutorial! I can't believe it's that easy. I'm definitely going to try this. :)

  17. Hey Erin,

    No problem. The magnets were very easy and super fun. Let me know how yours turn out. :o)

  18. Beautiful little magnets! They turned out so lovely. :)

  19. Hey! I featured you on my blog!

  20. Saw you at Jenny's blog. :) love your magnets, I will try to make some.
    I assume you get the glass tiles at like Hobby Lobby, but what section of the store? Jewelry making? stamping? etc?

  21. Neat idea...wish I could find cute paper like those!

  22. good idea shared on creative thing made by epoxy glue...


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit the blog. I enjoy reading your comments. What's on your mind?
