DIY Square Paperweights
I got these because I saw some craft ideas from 2 different magazines. I wanted to get these to try out before I got something really expensive. These are really cute. You can do so much with these and they have nice backings too. There were slight inperfections, but nothing too drastic. For the first one, I just cut out a magazine pix of a rose, and it just came out so cute. I want to make several and just have them around the house. It has a vintage feel to it. You can't go wrong with these!

Easy product, some quality issues
This item is a great idea as long as you don't need them to look extremely professional. There are some quality issues with respects to bubbles in the glass and out of the six I ordered, 3 had to be replaced. The replacements had bubbles as well, but they were not in the center of the glass and therefore not to distracting from the image used as the ones they replaced.
With that being said, if you're not concerned about them looking perfect, they do look good and are super easy to use. Most people who saw them really liked how they turned out and didn't seem to notice the little flaws.

too many bubbles and cracks
I hoped this product would be a good replacement for the "mom" paperweights that OT is currently out of stock on. However, I was disappointed that there were so many bubbles and even what looked to be small cracks in the glass.
I am waiting for the "mom" paperweights to come back in stock, hopefully in time for mothers day since they are in the new current catalog.

Defects, defects, defects
I bought these to personalize as Christmas gifts for coworkers. I expected the area on top to be clear of defects so that the recipients could read the message on the paperweight. A few minor defects along the sides would not have bothered me, but these are unacceptable.

Easy to decorate
Overall very nice product. Easy to decorate. I used a favorite photos to make paperweights for hubbies office. 2 of the 3 had slight imperfections in the glass, but nothing to bad. Paperweights all came out great!

Great Idea but not the best execution
The samples provided make it seem that product will sit flush against the glass but in reality what you put it in the paperweight ends up at the bottom, unable to be clearly seen. Must use some sort of prompt to push up to top.

I purchased these as staff gifts and was pleased with the quality for the price. I priced and purchased a variety of paperweights to make a decision and was very pleased with the quick delivery and overall quality of this product. I plan to purchase more to complete our project.
