These are sooo cool!!  I'd never even thought of something like this.  And they look insanely easy to do!  Magnets get lost in my house (thank you children!!  Angry)  so it would be cool to just have tons all over the place. 

I'm gonna pick up some stuff to make these tomorrow.  Thanks for the great idea!!

BTW, please describe what a sploodge sound sounds like.  I want to make sure I'm doing it right.   LOL  Cheesy

I've tried a few (dozen) of these.  They are addicting!  However, any tips on cutting out the paper circles?  My edges are kinda icky and some stick out from the magnet.  Since each magnet is slightly different, is there an easy way to cut the paper? Gigantic hole punch?  I've tried razor-blading the edges off once the E60000000 is dry but that makes them worse.

Thanks!  Smiley

I have yet to find the perfect method. Since my globs are all kind of globular i just trace around where the glass meets the paper and cut along the line i made. some of my edges are icky too, don't feel bad Smiley sploodging is an imperfect art.

I noticed at Target yesterday that there are larger glass globs. So if you really wanted to make a statement that's a way to go. I found it over by the candles section at Target. I'm going to get me some.

I really need to look for these. I picked up a 2" glass glob (for a nickel) at a hand-blown glass and marble grave in Pennsboro West Virginia over spring break and I've been kicking myself ever since for not buying a bucket of them. The big glass glob magnets with family photos would make such good presents for my brothers and sisters... I'll have to check out target and see what they've got!

(I know I'm late and it's an old thread, but I don't care!

Thanks you for this. I've had the globs and the idea for, um, a year or so now, and I've obsessed over the right kind of glue. I thought getting glue to be clear enough would be much harder.

I would also like to thank you for using the highly technical and correct terminology of "glob", "sploodge," and "smoosh" in your attack. Yaaaasss! I look forward to finding more technical language in more of your tutorials. I'm a big fan of smoodging, myself. Flobbling is also good, but harder to come by.
