I also used the cheapo round ProMAG magnets from Walmart. They work great.

ProMag at Walmart - it was 10 magnets for 1.28 here in the Twin Cities...I found them at Michael's but it was 1.99 for 10.
They work well - with the weight of the marbles you need at least 2 marble magnets to hold up a standard photo... at least that's what I've found on my fridge.

I have tried several magnets and found that the Walmart ones are the best and cheapest.  10 1/2 in for 1.28 and 50 3/4 in for 6.00.

They have a HUGE pack at Hobby Lobby of 50 for $6.00. The strength rating is 3 or 3.5, which is decent for the small magnets. The super strong ones I find work better for the large magnets, and tend to hold up better on a fridge or something.

My Hobby Lobby has 50 for $7.99, but the magnets are peculiar in that they're so polar that they won't stick to the fridge on one side, only on the other side. They can be used for glass marble magnets, but only if you stick the glass marble on the right side. They also do not show a strength rating like the 50 magnet pack at Walmart does (which shows a strength level of 3 on a scale of 10).

I have a lead for a bulk provider of VERY strong magnets (minimum order of $200) but I'll see if it's worthwhile for a bunch of us to go in together maybe. These are the tiny very strong ones they use in electronics (and for jewelry pins).

I made some today for my friends christmas gifts (a little late but I haven't seen them since I left school for winter break and god knows i couldn't accomplish anything during finals.)  They turned out well.  I had fun coming up with ideas for each set.  I have sushi, authors, the beatles, alcohols, spiderman and more.  Here are just a few where the pictures actually turned out okay:

hey all...just wanted to say...i got some great magnets for these.  I actually have hidden purse snaps.  they are thin but strong magnets.  they come in a plastic square, but you just cut them out.  they are much thinner, and worked really well when I tried them.

I got these magnets originally for my purses, but I messed up on one and put 2 (-) charged ones in a bag instead of a (-) and a (+).  they still worked (just not as strong), but it left me with two (+) magnets which I didn't want to put into purses.  SO I made a couple marble magnets.  If I do any more, I will definitely get these magnets again.  Heres a link to where I got them...online on ebay...a very trusted seller of mine...


$28.00 for 25 sets, plus 5 shipping.  so thats $33.00 for basically 50 magnets.  These are 14mm, but they do come in other sizes, and other quantaties.  A little more maybe than magnets you can get at walmart, or a craft store, but the real selling point for me is that they are very thin--and still stronger than the ones I've gotten at craft stores.
