  I just made a ton of the glass pebble magnets posted here for Christmas gifts. They turned out great!! Used Space Ghost and Mexican wrestling comics for my images. I love them so much I'm keeping about a dozen for myself.
   Anyway, I'm crazy anal about packaging. I want to attach these, 1/2 dozen per person, to cardstock (got one of those one pound scrap cardstock packs for $4 and am in lurve). Can anyone think of something that would adhere the little magnets to the cardstock, then come right off of the magnets? I would love to find the clear stuff they use commercially (DH and I call it "boogers" because when you roll it off of the package...), but I don't know where to find something like that or what it would be called.

Any ideas? I've also thought about the blue gummy stuff you use to adhere posters to walls and *maybe* hot glue, since it pops right off of most anything.

Apparently it's known as "fugitive glue" or "glue dots". This is about the only place I could find selling non-industrial quantities:


I've also heard of removable glue sticks, but I've never tried those.

how about rubber cement?
Or you could just glue a piece of metal to the back of the card stock and the magnets would hold themselves on.

And the winner is: rubber cement!
I'd forgotten all about how good it is for that.

The glue dots (mmmm...preextruded) are a good idea if I ever get into selling stuff, though. Thanks for the link.

An update for anyone who ever needs glue dots. I found them in a pack or 150 for 3.99 at A.C.Moore. I went over there to pick up some rubber cement, and while in the scrapbooking section picking up the rubber cement, I found them. This is good because I had almost forgotten that rubber cement makes me bright red in the face for hours if I use it, even a little.

Scrapbooking is so not my thing, but thank to its popularity I'm finding some great things for packaging!
