I am looking for a good source of magnets for a Christmas gift project. Anybody have a source that they use?
Thanks

I usually find things like that on ebay. Here is a listing that is Buy it Now. $6.50 for 100 with free shipping:

have you ever cut apart the "freebie" magnets for a refrigerator?? I do that sometimes...they are thin and you can get the perfect size.

I love BG magnets, but if it's not a fancy project I'm working on, I use the magnetic vent covers from Home Depot and cut them to size. It's about $5 for 3 sheets:

Magnetic Vent Covers from Thermwell Products | The Home Depot - Model#: MC815/3

I use them with cheap washers.

Hobby Lobby has all kinds of thin adhesive magnets. In shapes and in sheets. I use the adhesive sheets in CD cases and put my Spellbinders in them. I have seen tiny dots, circles, strips and squares. They go from small to larger from Hobby Lobby. They keep them in several isles at Hobby Lobby since people use them for all different purposes.

I buy mine at bottlecapco.com. Good price & super strong. Most of the time when I need a magnet I need the strength so go for the rare earth (thin super strong) magnets. I use a good glue on these because they can pull the paper off if you try using red-liner tape.

I've ordered several times from bottlecapco and get great service.
