Map Magnets

Use small pieces of old maps to create fun magnets.  Simply purchase large clear luster gems (found at most Dollar Stores), magnets, decoupage and strong glue (E6000 is a great one for these).

Trace your gem onto the map, and cut it out.  

Apply a thin coat of decoupage on the bottom of your gem (one side is flat).

Attach your cut piece of map so that it shows through the gem as shown above. Allow it to dry.

Attach a magnet to the back with glue and allow to dry.

Tip:  Maps can also be used in place of gift wrapping paper.
