HOW TO: Easy Polaroid magnets!

Do you LOOOOOVE Polaroids?


So, when I saw this project, I couldn't resist! 


So, here's what you need:

- 1 White magnet sheet
- Pencil
- Cutter
- Ruler
- Marker
- If you have a cutting mat, that can be a big help 
- Pictures (you can edit them vintage)

#1 Cut magnet sheet in 4 parts

#2 Measure in 1/4 of an inch from edge on three sides, and mark top and sides ( I made a couple measuring 1/2 inch on top and sides, but it was a little thicker than I wanted)

#3 Bottom must be thicker than all the other sides ( you can decide how wide you want the bottom to be)

#4 Cut a square in the center (make sure your cutter goes all the way through your magnet for a clean cut)

#5 Slowly pull the square out...

... it's going to look like this 

#6 Pick one of your pictures. Mark the sides that you need to cut to fit within the frame

#7 Cut sides

#8 And VOILA!!! Ready to use!!

Aren't they super cute??

Once you decided where and how you want them, you can add captions with a permanent marker!

Decorate your fridge with tons of your memories!

You can also get a magnetic board and place them wherever you want! I got one of them at IKEA for $15... Totally worth it! 

I hope you loved it as much as I did! Now I walk through my kitchen and always stop and just stare at these pics for a while....

I love to be reminded of the wonderful treasures I'm blessed with..

Have a lovely Tuesday!!!
