Inspired by this forum and the marble magnets...I went to JoAnn's to buy some flat marbles.

Only, the didn't have any at all. GRRR!

I did however find these neat little self-adhesive acrylic bubbles. They were in the scrapbooking isle and I guess are used for decorations in scrapbooks. The package had two sizes...medium and large. I snatched them up and went home.

They were very easy to use. I just pressed the clear bubble over my picture, cute the excess paper off and glued felt on the back. Finally, I used my hot glue gun (I LOVE I LOVE I LOVE) to glue the magnets on.

Ta-Da...a perfect V-day gift for my Irish-American boyfriend. He's way into Celtic stuff...and so I thought these would make a nice addition.

Sorry they are so blurry.

The other advantage to these little bubbles is that they are very light weight. So...the magnets don't have to be mega-strong.

I like that idea. I was trying to make a memo board using the marble magnets but they jsut weren't working right for me. I will have to try this idea. Thanks for sharing!!

page pebbles are nice because they're uniform but they are terribly expensive compared to the marbles. I just found the big 1 1/2" size marbles at the dollar store about 1/2 hour ago! it looks like about 25 or so in the bag. i am so psyched to go home and put them to use this weekend!!! (i'm working now Sad )

but anyway i found them at Dollar tree if you have those around you. also get my regular marbles at michaels for about 100/$2.29

Yeah, I would've used marbles if I could have found some...but I think the expense of the page marbles is fine as long as it is for a small present or something.

Now if I was going to make a bunch of them...that's a totally different issue.

PS: I live in Alaska...we only have $1.49 stores...not dollar trees...hehehe funny.
