Quick and Easy Gifts

Need a quick and easy gift to give your neighbor or co-worker this Christmas? These are all over the place in bloggyland and now I've got mine made too...they are so cute!

Take some of those glass pebbles - these weren't perfect circles, so my 1" circle punch wasn't going to work, but it's so easy with just scissors, you won't mind.

Grab your leftover Christmas cards, gift wrap, or anything with cute designs. Mine were all going to be Christmas themed, so the cards worked perfectly.

Trace around your circle and cut it out a little smaller (you can also trim later, so no biggie on being perfect). Mod podge the paper to the back of the glass, and let it dry. I went over that one more time with mod podge and then it was ready for the magnets.

I've made other projects with the regular ceramic magnets with mixed results, and I've been hearing these are super strong....and oh my gosh, they're so strong they're extremely hard to pull apart!

Gluing the magnets down with a little shot of E-6000 industrial glue (very stinky) and letting that dry made it easy to work on other projects...once a multi-tasker, always a multi-tasker :)

And here are the finished products on the fridge! Cute (and the magnets are super strong too)!

These took about an hour to put together, with drying time. Super easy and cute to give away as gifts! I'm going to be making another set for myself with some different designs...look for them to show up sometime in the future!


  1. What a great idea! Guess what I will be doing in the near future! Thank You!

  2. What a great idea! Perfect for a young family with their fridge covered in photos and art projects. I'd like to make some for my daughters. Merry Christmas! vickie

  3. Oh my gosh! Those are so cute! The picture is so vivid...I'm really amazed at how crystal clear they are... I'm pinnin' this for next years gifts. You can never have enough small ideas for inexpensive presents.

  4. Jill, I'm sorry that I wasn't following you when I thought I was! My blogger has been acting weird lately, but I think now I'm following you. It has done several blogs like that, I "thought" I was following! Have a very merry Christmas and a prosperous 2012!

  5. And I love what you did with the 'rocks'!

  6. qué bonitos! Son unos regalos fáciles y originales. Gracias

  7. This is such a lovely idea for a gift! I am definitely going to keep this idea for future ventures (since I am a bit late on the Christmas gift wagon for 2011).


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts! I appreciate each and every one of you!
