  • Step 1Trace your bottle tops onto different coloured cover paper and cut out.
  • Step 2Measure the size of the circles you have cut out and then print out a photo of yourself small enough to fit this size.
  • Step 3Use the cover paper circles, your photo and the foam glitter stars and letters to create your designs. Use PVA glue to glue into the metal bottle tops.
  • Step 4Carefully follow the CraftSmart Liquid Gloss instructions and use a plastic spoon to mix it together in a paper cup.
  • ModPodge can be used as an alternative to the CraftSmart Liquid Gloss if working with younger children. Drying time is longer and a few coats may be necessary.
  • Step 6Use the spoon to carefully fill the metal bottle tops to the top, completely covering your design underneath. Allow to dry for at least 24 hours.
  • Step 7Cut small pieces from the magnetic strip and trim to a circle size to attach to the back of the bottle top. You may wish to use glue dots for a more permanent hold. Small round magnets can also be used if you don’t wish to cut from the self adhesive strip magnet. Your magnets are now ready for the fridge!
