Default Re: how are these made?

I made ones similar for my daughter-in-law with pictures of our granddaughter. You can find the larger flat back clear stones at Dollar Tree in a mesh kind of bag (you get like a pound of them for $1) The shapes are a little irregular and not perfect circles, but they turned out nice. I mod podged the picture onto the flat back of the stone (face up) and the shape of the stone magnifies the image a little. I had seen a tutorial where they had made ones with smaller stones and a letter on patterned paper, so they could spell out words, etc. I picked up a roll of magnet tape at Lowes and cut off pieces of it and glued it onto mine. They are still on her frig, so they've held up well. Hope that helps someone.
