DIY Glass Stone Magnet Craft Kit
These are wonderful, my daughters love making magnets for their lockers at school and my fridge at home. They turned out better than I had expected!

glass stone magnet
The statement, "paper insert not included" meant to me that one's design would be INSERTED into the stone. It actually must be glued to the stone. Also, the stones were different sizes making it difficult to make several of the same magnets with one size design. It was too large for some of the stones.

cute project idea
I let my 2 year old son paint fingerprints & then I added detail(i.e. an Easter egg or Valentine heart) & gave them as gifts to Grandparents, Aunts, Sitters. They turned out really well, and I plan to order more.

Good deal for what I wanted..
I used the magnets for party favors. You have to find your own glue (I used a thin layer of clear jewelry glue) but they turned out great.
I would order them again for other projects!

This product worked well with the pieces that were not deformed. Some didn't have a flat surface on the back and the magnet wouldn't stick. I think your price is too high for the quality of merchandise. Ordered more through a different company. Will see what the comparison brings.

Very poor quality
I was very excited to order these as I planned on using them as part of a pendant that would showcase my art. There are several disappointing issues with these. First off, is that the sizes are very inconsistent. Some were small, 15/16" of an inch up to the 1 1/8" they claim to be. Also, and most importantly, the quality on these are absolutely HORRIBLE. I purchased 5 sets of these, 65 stones total (each dozen comes with an "extra pieces" bag).
Of the 65 that I purchased, 28 I would consider in pristine/perfect condition. 20 are in okay, but not great condition. Air bubbles or warped glass keep these from being perfect. 17 are either completely warped or have air bubbles in them so badly that there is absolutely no way to clearly see the image that is placed underneath.
I would gladly pay twice as much as I did in order to ensure that each and every stone that I order is in perfect condition.

Gave kids something different to do for a change .
These were fun for my two small children. They enjoyed picking out something to put under the stone and were amazed at the magnification and how it changed their art. I cut out circles of colored paper as a background and glued items to that, then used Elmer's glue to seal it to the stone. Worked fine.

Not what it seems
I purchased the glass stone magnet kit thinking they would make a cool Mother's Day gift. I was wrong! They are too tiny and for the price, were too expensive. 'll probably just use them on my school magnetic board to just hold up papers. Not quite what I was hoping. Wouldn't recommend or buy again.

These were not exactly what I thought they'd be. Much smaller than expected. Then I had to re-do them several times. You had to cut whatever it was you were using just right. Then several of the stones had defects that distorted the image. Then the magnets were black, therefore if the sticker, picture, etc was at all seethru or did not completly cover the stone, youd see the black magnet thru the stone. Then I had a hard time getting the magnet to stick , and had to hot glue the magnet eventually ......

You have to add to it
Be advised that with this kit, you have to add to it. If you choose to cut paper circles, you will need scissors and clear glue. If you choose to use markers, you will need them. Another option is stickers. With those, you will still need clear glue, since the glue goes on the top of the sticker.
One to two magnets hold a sheet of paper on a refrigerator securely.
Some of the plastic was marred and not completely clear, but for the price, it was worth it.
