Picture magnets

The magnets that you get on the cover of your phone books is what I used.  Soaked in hot water to remove the advertisting from the magnet.  Then painted with a coat of white arylic paint.  Mod podge background paper, between each coating of mod podge I let dry for about 20 minutes. Then added the picture and all the embellishments, let dry, and then added a coat of mod podge, let dry and then another coat of mod podge.
