Embossed Look Fish Magnet


  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Aleene’s Magnetic Tacky Tape or Aleene’s Magnetic Tacky Dots
  • Aleene’s Spray Acrylic Sealer (gloss or matte)
  • Cardboard (I used cereal box cardboard)
  • Pencil

  • Scissors
  • Spray paint – flat white
  • Alcohol inks
  • Small paint brush


  1. Transfer fish pattern to cardboard. Cut out along pattern line.

  2. I like to use a tape tip in order to create a narrow line of glue. Click for tutorial. Draw along the entire outside of fish and on inside pattern lines with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
