I was goofing around with my glass marbles this weekend and realized that I didn't actually have any magnets so stuck them on flat top thumb tacks. they've come in handy in my crafty area.


I used some scrap book paper (thank you girlosun_9), regular flat top thumbtacks purchased at Target and some flat back glass marbles. 

a couple of more details on my blog - http://sewyouwantto.blogspot.com/2008/04/saturday-crafts.html

thanks! I've made these a bunch, just 'cause they are so quick and fun. I'll give them out to my friends and co-workers when I'm finished.

i did that about two years ago but what I found out for next time is that the tacks need to be longer or i need to use super glue gel instead of E6000 to glue the marbles onto the thumb tacks. Because if you use super glue gel, the marble won't fall off of the thumb tack.


nice print. I used magazine clippings and found those to be fun and hilarious sometimes.

I used Zap a Gap - which I swear will hold anything. you just need to let it fully cure before poking them into anything, but they do work best on cork boards.

"Zap a Gap," hmm...I've never heard of it, where should I look for it?

My husband introduced me to it - he uses it for his plastic models. It's pretty boss. I buy mine at the hobby shops (think train and plane models). The cyanocrylate (sp?) glues fuse plastic.

They're pretty!
And they don't fall out of cork boards or anything? They look heavy but I'm no good at physics.
