  3. To apply glitter along the front edge of cap, pour a small amount of glitter onto wax paper and spread with fingers to create a circle of glitter slightly larger than cap. Next, pour a small puddle of Aleene’s Tacky Glue on wax paper. Dip cap into glue.

  9. If desired, glue charms, buttons, and scrapbook embellishments into center of magnets. I love the effect when you place your embellishment in the cap and secure or cover it with 3D Lacquer. I also like to display my magnets in an upcycled muffin tin. I used the EcoHeidi Drybrush technique to paint my muffin tin.
