Good morning! It’s Arabella here with my first project feature post and first ever tutorial, so please bear with me! Here’s what I want to share with you how to make today…
Glass tile magnets, a pendant and a Prof Hoot keyring that I thought would be perfect for a wee graduation gift, especially if you made a matching card to go with it!
So, let’s get started! Here’s what you will need…
- Images to use on your tiles
- Glossy Accents, Glamour Glaze or something similar
- Strong glue
- Pendant casings
- Glass tiles
- Punches to match the size of your tiles
- Strong magnets if you want to make magnets
- Chain for the pendants or a keyring if you are making keyrings
Once the glaze is dry, you can decide what you want to do with the tiles. Use the super strong glue to add magnets to the back or glue the tiles into pendant casings. I suggest purchasing the very strong Neodymium magnets if you are going to make magnetic tiles as there is nothing more annoying than fridge magnets that won’t hold anything up!
Something else I discovered while making these is that the Copic Opaque white on Prof Hoot’s eyes smudged when I added the glue, but the pen I used on the girl’s eyes did not. I’m not sure if that was because I didn’t let give the Copic Opaque white time to dry properly first or if it just does that. I would recommend you experiment with that. I also noticed that some of the reds smudged a bit… I suspect that is because the ink was over-saturated in those areas.
Here are my finished pendants:

I hope you enjoyed my wee tutorial!
