Intro: Bubble Head Magnets
Here we make magnets with your friends or families head magnified in each of them. Everyone ends up looks slightly deformed, but that just adds to the fun. I made a couple sets for my family and groups of friends.
This is what we need:
Little glass pebbles (used for silk flowers)
Small pictures of people
Hot Glue gun
Step 1: Cut Out Little Pictures
I cut out little pictures with the X-acto knife of the people I want to be magnified by the pebble. I did a couple trial runs on non-photo paper to get the sizing right and then I printed them out on photo paper.
Step 2: Pick Out the Pebbles
Before I did any gluing, I made sure that the picture and pebble fit each other. The pebbles are all slightly different sizes, so it's best to do a test run first. Although, I find it very easy to peel the picture off without any damage right after I apply the glue.
Step 3: Glue Back of Pebble
I used hot glue and put a little dot of glue on the back of the pebble.
Step 4: Attach Picture
I then immediately applied the picture, face down, on the glue and squished it flat. After this, I put a little self-adhesive magnet that I bought at Michaels. They probably sell them at your local drug store.
Step 5: Admire!
They look ridiculous! But all your friends will love them. Neat.
