DIY Polaroid Picture Frame Magnet

I saw a pack of these polaroid picture frame magnets while shopping today, and thought they were so cuteeee. I was going to buy them, when I realized I could make them with some stuff I had at home. When I had my old store on Etsy, I had ordered large magnetic business cards because Vista Prints was offering them for free, so I said “why not?” Well…I didn’t really have a use for them, but I’m glad I ordered them, because I’ve used them as bases for a lot of DIY magnets. You can purchase magnet sheets from Michaels, but since I have these laying around I used them.

I got the measurements of a polaroid height and length (4.25in X 3.5in) and just eyeballed the inner hole for the picture (really just because the measurements were so small and it was annoying to use a ruler lol). I started with gluing some white cardstock to the magnet using Rubber Cement (love this stuff), and then once it dried, I cut it. I used my paper cutter for the shape, and for the inner hole, I used a ruler and Xacto knife.polaroidmagnet1

I love the way it came out, and love that they’re interchangeable! ๐Ÿ™‚polaroidmagnet2

  1. It turned out well! This was something I wanted to do too, then I got lazy because… well, that always happens, haha. I’ve seen many with polymer clay, but really, cardstock would just fine.

    • Thanks! I’m actually having a lazy day today, so I feel ya! haha. I’ve made polymer clay charms too, but for this size, the cardstock worked pretty well ๐Ÿ™‚
