It's Not Just a Card - It's a Bookmark

A few years ago, I saw a deal on 8mm magnets and thought I would just get them because I am sure I could find a use.

  • 8mm magnets
This isn't only a card, it is a bookmark too!

The magnets are very strong and only 8mm.  I take two magnets and leave them together.  I attach a glue dot to one magnet and place it on the inside of the bookmark.  I then attach a glue dot to the exposed magnet and close the bookmark.  Carefully open up the bookmark to expose magnets.  Apply Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to a Scallop Circle punch outs and cover exposed magnets.  I would highly recommend using the liquid glue for this step of the project - your typical adhesive runner will not hold up.
