Hello! I am new to this forum and I am trying to find 1 inch by 1/16 inch disc magnets to use for a craft project. The only ones I did find say they will hold one to two pieces of paper or a business card and I don't think that will work for this project. Any ideas? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Maybe try a hard ware store or even a stationary shop. They might have them, or else might be able to give you an idea of where to look.

Other option would be to buy them online.

What do you need them to hold?

If you need good holding power, do a search for rare earth magnets.  Lee Valley Tools carries them, but the 1 inch ones are 1/8th inch thick.  Also, theyare pricier.  But they do carry disc and ring rare earth magnets.
