super easy project. you’ll need glass that is flat on one side, rounded on the other (found at craft stores or dollar tree), magazines, Mod Podge, scissors…

if i wanted to do a kitchen theme for a cook, i would look for food pictures in magazines. i choose this one.

Mod Podge the flat slide of glass & place on picture, push it down a bit, then turn upside down to dry. when dry, trim to the glass edge & add magnet. if paper seems flimsy you can put some Mod Podge on both sides to firm it up. THAT.IS.IT!

i used to say, “i love you more” to my kiddos, sometimes i still do…but they are all teenagers now.

i’ve made these with art students & we just cannot stop & we make too many because you see your magazine in a whole new way!

    1. A side effect to a creative brain is that my brain NEVER shuts up. Even when i sleep, i dream of stores with things that don’t exist sometimes. BUT, Reggie, i love it, i just run out of time to make things i want to make. This project, however, is one of the most fun i’ve ever done because it takes seconds to make one AND it changed the way i saw magazines & catalogs. I got a great catalog from a paper store. Well, they photograph all sorts of amazing things & i can’t afford half of it. BUT, then i realized instead of buying a picture of the words, “Love you more” i could just place a piece of glass over it with Mod Podge (white glue words too) and I CAN HAVE THE PICTURE, for free, in my own way! You should give it a try! I promise you would LOVE it. ~amy
