.Round glass stones can be found at almost any craft and hobby store, and they come in a variety of colors and sizes. They are, for the most part, inexpensive and easy to craft with.

Paperweights can easily be fashioned from a large glass stone that features a flat base.

Felt can be glued under the picture to protect surfaces and cushion the glass. Magnets can be created from smaller glass stones in the same manner simply by gluing a magnet to the back.
