Christmas magnet

Few people know that holly is a symbol of Christmas. Christmas hollow owls are sitting on this holly, guarding the house. I want to tell you how to make a magnet with these owls. Napkins can be bought at stationery stores, in supermarkets. If there is no napkin with the image of owls, you can take any other, for example, with Santa Claus.

What you need:

• napkins,

• magnetic paper,

• Polish for hair,

• glue transparent Globus (glue for shoes).

1 step.

Take a piece of magnetic paper 10 * 15 cm (I bought at a computer store, where ordinary photo paper is sold).

Now apply a napkin and see if the image of the owls fits. We mark with a pencil and cut off the unnecessary from the back

2 step.

Now we break off the edges so that unnecessary snowflakes are not visible.

3 step.

Separate the two lower layers from the napkin.

4 step.

We will put a napkin on a magnetic sheet. I found that it is impossible to work with PVA glue, because it wrinkles a napkin too thin, leaves too many thick bumps under the image. Therefore, I decided to use a transparent adhesive Globus. It dries quickly, does not leave wrinkles, the only negative is the smudges on a napkin. We do not apply glue all at once, but little by little - we applied one area, smoothed it, took it over another. Because the glue dries very quickly.

5 step.

The smudges could not be avoided, so we cut off the edge curly. First, we cut roughly the main part of the image with simple scissors, then figuratively align the edges with manicure scissors to emphasize the leaves of the holly plant on which the owls are sitting. This plant is a symbol of Christmas.

6 step.

To protect the napkin from moisture, apply a layer of strong hold hairspray.

7 step.

Owls dry, then finally fix the varnish with an iron to dry the varnish. It is necessary to wait until the varnish evaporates, otherwise when ironing the magnet sticks. So we apply 3 layers, although more is possible. Here are the Winter Owls and ready!
