I plan on covering the tubes with pretty paper.

Thanks for the link, chriseo! I just ordered some of these too. I hope they work well. I am thinking of trying one of the magnets paired with a piece of the cheapo advertising magnets since I don't have a little steel pieces to use.

How about putting a picture of your magic hold vases in your gallery? I just can't visualize it.

Thumbs up

The owner of K&J Magnetics sent me this info if your looking to buy magnets that are a little more professional. They ship same day and I give them a big thumbs up for service!!!

~~~
I have three recommendations for this: D401 (1/4" diameter x 1/32" thick), D501 (5/16" diameter x 1/32" thick), D601 (3/8" diameter x 1/32" thick). The D401 provides a light hold that should be sufficient for most applications like this. The D501 is slightly stronger, and the D601 is the strongest, useful for thicker-than-normal card stock or applications where you want a stronger hold. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

For the curious. Here is the website to make magnetic bud vases. I still have to cover mine with pretty paper and ribbon. I'm going to put homemade pinwheels and fresh flowers in them. They will be the table decorations and all the Moms's can take a set home then. I'll post the finished pixs prior to Mother's day.

What if you used a dot of the advertising magnet on one side....and then one of those thin pieces of "pot metal" on the other (not aluminum because magnets don't stick to it) but I've got some nickel-plated disks in my beading stash (I have no idea what I was going to do with them) that are paper-thin. I'll check on trying that in a few days when I have some time.

Not trying to hi-jack BUT I discovered the coooooolest thing! Y'all are gonna think I am crazy (I mean I actually experimented not knowing the outcome and threatened the integrity of my punches) but guess what? The advertising magnets that you get in the mail-weeellll- you can use SU! punches with them! Yes, just peel off the paper part of the magnet and punch away! Did not hurt my punches one bit- as a matter of fact the punches seemed to work better on those thin magnet sheets than they do on cardstock!

Thought y'all could give it a whirl!

Default magnets for closures

What is a COD and how thick are your 'magnets'?

COD means Crop A Dile. She may have meant to type CAD? Anyways, the magnet idea is brilliant! I made a couple of flap cards but had no magnets.
