Magnets from the Ohio meet up

The swap at the Ohio Cricut Circle meet up was magnets.  There were so many creative ideas!  I doubt I got everyone's magnet but I took pictures of all the magnets I did receive and here they are!

The full collection I received:

Here are some close ups for a better view:

And here are a few of my personal favorites:

I also took a picture of the variety of backings people used to create these magnets.  It was awesome how many different materials were used from vinyl to paper to mosaic tiles (that was me!).

Here is a picture of my magnet, which matches my calling card and the banner I made:

I made this using mosaic tiles (like you would use for a back splash) from Hobby Lobby.  There were two different greens in my pack, this is just one of them.  The tile is one inch square.  I made all of my cuts and then glued them to the tile.  I didn't worry too much about making sure they were all properly glued down becasue my next step was to Mod Podge the whole thing to seal it all in.  This left a nice clear finish over the entire surface and I didn't have to worry about any parts falling off.  For the back, I used the magnet that comes as a big roll and just cut a piece to fit. I hope you like it!
