I went, with coupon in hand, to my local craft store and came home with a spring flower bunch. Not crazy expensive but pretty; I paid $5. I picked one that had different sized flowers in it. I didn't want to them all be the same. A package of magnet buttons finished my purchase for a grand total of $7.
With scissors in hand, cut off leaves that will be the base for my flowers. Some of the leaves I trimmed down a bit so they weren't so big. Put a dab of hot glue on the magnet and attach your leaf. (My hot glue gun is ancient so I am always careful to not burn my skin off when attaching things!)
I cut the blooms off the bunch that I wanted to make into magnets.
You want the flower to sit flat on the leaf secured to the magnet so you have to cut the base off. I cut them one at a time and glued them. The will fall apart without the base securing them so cut then glue right away.
I am using them during Valentine's on my magnetic chalkboard but I think I will be using them far into Spring and possibly Summer. Stay tuned to see where/how they show up next!
Thanks for stopping by today!
