ABC Marble Magnets

I think I have a magnet obsession. It goes back to my teaching days when I applied magnetic tape to just about everything so it would display nicely on my magnetic white board.  Magical stuff.  I also have a passion for all things "ABC"... so this little project was a perfect blend of both.   I am having too much fun leaving love notes on my refrigerator!
I think we've all seen the magnets you make with clear marbles such as these:

I have several sets that I made using cute scrapbook paper, and love them  But it's just so stinkin' fun to create messages!  So I found these cute stickers:

So I just used colored paper, punched a bunch of circles, and applied stickers like crazy.  The most important thing is finding glue that dries clear.  Don't use too much or it will show when it dries... just a dab will do!  I used a paint brush to help ensure a smooth finish.  Then I attached my handy-dandy magnet tape to the back of each marble.

What fun, bright, happy letters.  Wouldn't these be fun to help teaching your kiddos the ABC's??  I am imagining my son's little fingers sliding these around on a magnetic cookie sheet.  


Here's a message for you--dear readers!

Another fun set of magnets.  For now.  I love switching things up!

  10. I make these for every holiday. I just love them. I found the small round magnets at the dollar store that are the perfect size. You just peel off the back and stick it to the marble. I love your bright colors

    Love these! I've put all sorts of pictures under those awesome little marbles, but I never thought of letters. Thanks for the great idea!

    Too funny that we both posted about magnets on the same day. I LOVE yours though… such a neat idea. My poor son can't spell his name with the LeapFrog letters on the fridge b/c there's only one "d". He'll be thrilled when I make him two!!!
