For the more crafty DIY minded of you, this is a brief 'how-to', if you wanted to make the tiny polaroid magnets that I mentioned in my Sunday Catch Up post towards the end of January. I made these as part of a Birthday present for my best friend, and although I had a few issues with them I'm really proud of how they turned out! I think they make such a cute addition to a fridge/magne tboard/radiator...anything you want to stick them on to!
They are actually really simple to make; I first saw how to make them here and then slightly adapted the instructions to fit what I envisioned in my head. First off, you need some thick cardstock (or a few pieces of thin card stuck together), a craft knife, magnetic tape, glue strips (if you're sticking the card together - which is what I did - although spray mount is infinitely better if you can stretch to it!), paper glaze, a polaroid frame template (which you can download free from here) and photo paper to print off your pictures.
Once you've chosen your pictures, printed them and stuck the photo paper to the card, you need to cut them out. Use a craft knife, so you get a really straight edge - its also so much easier and faster! Once you've cut them all out, cut the magnet tape to the size of the picture and stick it onto all the backs.
And, voila! You're done, pop them in a box and tie up with a ribbon and you've got a really cute personal gift :) Or, just keep them for yourself, I'm definitely going to make some for myself soon.
Let me know if any of you attempt this, or have made something similar. I love finding new crafty things to make :)
