More Glass Magnets for School Valentine's

 So I posted about these Everyday Enchantment Glass Magnets the other day.  I have some more magnets to share today.  These are ones that Ryan and I made together for his class Valentine's last month.  He had a great time using the Big Shot, the punches and glue!

  These are made almost the same way as the Everyday Enchantment Glass Magnets but Ryan punched out a small heart from Red Glimmer paper that we glued down onto the DSP before adhering it to the Multipurpose Adhesive sheets.  Make sure to put the pattern you want to show on the magnet face down onto the adhesive sheets.  Then we punched out circles using the 1 1/4" circle punch.  Using the bone folder we burnished the DSP onto the back of glass rock.  Then we glued the magnets to the back. The sparkly heart looks really cute!

 We used the 2 Tags die and Real Red cardstock to make the name tags.  He LOVES to use the Big Shot, I made the sandwich and he cranks it through.  Ryan's teacher provided the hearts with each students name.  He cut those out all by himself and glued them to the tags.  Next we printed out the greeting which says, "Valentine, I'm stuck on you!"  I thought it was slightly clever since they were magnets but then again I'm quite easily amused!  Ryan glued those on the tag as well.  We used Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon to attach the tag to the small cello bag.

 Here is the girls version....Pink for girls, Blue for boys!  We used some old 6x6 Sale-a-bration DSP from a few years back.  Welcome Neighbor I think.  Anyway, the paper has cute little hearts all over it that you can't see well in the photo.

 He wrote "From Ryan" on the back of each tag.  We had to do this part in several sittings since his handwriting went seriously downhill after 7 or 8!  He was so proud of this project he wanted to make several extras to hand out to other teachers and aides!  His backpack was super heavy the day he brought them into school!

  This was a fun and easy project to make with a kindergartener.  We did it over the course of several days and had fun doing it together.
