Spring Altoid

When I saw altered altoid cans and glass bead magnets, I just had to try them! I'm going to teach the co-op students how to make them this Friday. It was so fun and easy! I used the Butterfly Garden stack by DCWV. I cut butterflies out of the paper and mod podged them so they would be stiff. Flowers are from I Am Roses and Wild Orchid Crafts. I added brown washi tape around the edge and then wrapped twine over it. I used pictures from the stack to use under the glass beads. I mod podged the top of the picture and stuck it to the bead and mod podged the bottom to seal it. Then added E6000 and the magnet to the bottom after the mod podge dried.
