3. what size/type magnets do you use for the little tiles and glass beads ( I tried the adhesive sheets cut up, but they didn't hold well)
4. which tag punch are you guys using to make the nugget tents???

any and all answers greatly appreciated. THANKS!
I can answer #1 & #2:
#1) You can seal it with Crystal Effects or Diamond Glaze. On my blog I discussed why I decided to switch to a waterproof epoxy resin (I use Colores Doming Resin). Keyword "jewelry" I believe. The nontoxic Diamond Glaze etc. are water-resistant but not waterproof...with a lot of wear, it can get cloudy & dull. Still, it's the glaze of choice for most because it's nontoxic, easy & cheaper to use. Oh, & you also don't have to pre-seal the paper like with resin.

#2) I use either small or medium. The most common bail is the Aanraku bail. I like the width/look of the small bail better but it won't fit some chains...so it just depends on what kind of chain you want to use.
