These magnets were made from pages of a vintage dictionary.  The art work with the type make a great little piece of art.

bluejean writes: They are fairly simple to make. I use the large size glass gems (like the ones you put in flower arrangments), decoupauge medium, paint and of course a magnet. I made copies of the dictionary images because the paper is so thin on the original page. I then take the glass gem trace around the image I want and paint the back of the paper black. This seals it and blends in with the magnet, giving it a finished look. Next I cut out the image and glue it onto the glass gem using decoupauge medium. I then seal the back and glue the magnet on. I think you can find all the supplies at most craft stores or online. Posted: 4:09 pm on October 6th
