Draw faint circles on the paper the same size as the magnet; the best way is to place the plastic cabochon directly onto the paper and draw round it.
Draw your chosen design using the edding 1800 fineliner.
Coat the base of the glass cabochon with glue and press it onto the design into position, making sure that no air bubbles are trapped. Allow to dry thoroughly.
Cut round it with scissors and stick it carefully onto the metal mount. And there you have it – you’ve designed your very own magnet!
Tip: You can make items of jewellery, such as rings, pendants and bracelets in the same way. Your local craft store will have a large selection of cabochons to choose from. You can decorate them using edding gel rollers and super-fine edding 1800 fineliners.
