A really fun and easy project. There are a ton of tutorials, but maybe you haven't seen one yet!
Mod Podge Glue (matte finish)
Use a Document program like Microsoft Word. Choose a font you would prefer. I printed the sizes on plain paper to choose the right font and size for my glass marbles.
Print Numbers or Letters out on cardstock/scrapbook paper.
Using Modpodge, "paint" the bottom of the glass marble with the glue. Place the marble over the number/letter. Press firmly.
Hint: I set aside the larger marbles for the higher numbers (i.e 20-30) and the smaller for the single digit numbers.
Layout to dry. I cut them in strips to make it more manageable. I was making five different colors for the different months.
Note: I did notice that sometimes the numbers would bleed because the numbers were made with an inkjet printer. I liked the look so it didn't bother me.
Cut out each marble. When I was cutting, I simply held my scissors against the marble as a guide.
Notes: I cute each number into individual squares and then cut them out.
Other tutorials: Other tutorials I read instructed to use the marble as a template. They had you place the marble on the paper and draw a pencil line and then cut out the pencil line and glue. I thought this would be too much added work.
I was VERY pleased with results I got.
Cut out squares to fit the back of your magnets.
I like the pre-adhesive rolls. I find mine at Hobby Lobby in the chalkboard/white erase board aisle.
Peel of backing of magnet and place in the center.
Need to glue!!
