paper flower magnets

It’s summer time, the perfect time to dress up your magnetic surfaces (hello-o-o-o refrigerator!) with some pretty paper flower magnets! Luckily for you, we’ve partnered with Craftsy® to bring you this fun and easy project – just check out our video and instructions to learn how!
Step 1
First, choose a piece of paper and cut a large circle. Use your scissors to cut into the circle’s side, then cut around, spiraling inward. Continue cutting a spiral until you reach the very center of the circle, and you’ll be left with one very long paper curl!

TIP: You can cut your spiral in a straight line or switch it up by cutting a wavy line instead.
Step 2
Once your spiral is complete, begin rolling it up into a flower shape. Begin at the outside tip (where you started cutting in Step 1) and roll until you reach the center, where the spiral ends. 
Step 3
Dab a little hot glue onto the flower’s base, then push the flower down into the glue so that all the paper layers are fastened together. Hold the flower in place until the glue has set, which will just take a minute or so. 
Step 4
Next, add another dab of hot glue and fasten a magnet to the flower’s base. 
Step 5
Let’s add some flair! Use your brush to add paint to the flower’s edges. 
Step 6
Finally, give your flower a little more interest, and hot glue one or more beads into its center. Let your flower’s paint and glue dry completely. So cute! Now you’re ready to stick it onto your fridge or another magnetic surface.
