 3. Allow to dry completely.


Note:  Neodymium magnets are super strong!!  If you have them too close together on your work surface they will find each other. If your glue is not dry you will not be able to get the magnets apart without ruining the adhesion of the embellishments and magnets.  If it happens, allow them to dry completely before trying to separate.


 Depending on the embellishment you may need to remove an adhesive pad from the back before you can affix the magnet.  This was the case with the buttons and bottle caps I used.
