I was walking through the grocery store the other day looking at the Valentine’s Day candy when I saw conversation hearts. I wrinkled my nose because I immediately imagined the chalky taste associated with them. I guess it depends on your taste, but I’m not wild about them. So, I decided to make conversation magnets for Valentine’s Day instead. They are useful and cute!
*You can get the gems from the Dollar Store and the magnetic tape strips from Walmart.
Ignore the paint brush. I don’t know why I put it in the picture, but you won’t need it.
Pick a pretty Valentine’s Day paper that is pink or red and trace the gem. When you cut it out, cut inside of the circle to make it a bit smaller.
Write some conversation notes on the circles you’ve just cut out. Make sure you write small and keep it in the center.
Add a small drop of Diamond Glaze on the back of the gem. Lay one of the circles face down (so that the writing faces the back of the gem) onto the glue. Let it dry.
The magnet had a layer of adhesive on the back of it, but considering that I spend $1 something for the whole pack, I didn’t trust the adhesive to stick. Go with the glue.
Let it dry. Repeat for the remaining magnets.
They are cute and functional! Mail them to your friends 🙂
