Cute Photo Craft Idea

I saw this recently on Pinterest and thought it was such a cute idea. Click Tiny Polaroid Magnets to view the tutorial on how to get started.  In the tutorial she says you will need Photoshop.  I know most people don’t own Photoshop so I wanted to make a particular comment on the Pixlr online editing program that she mentions….It is FREE and will handle making these little cuties very nicely.

I also think you could simply print the polaroid template she provides at a certain size (maybe a regular polaroid size and cut the center out and place a picture behind it.  I’ve saved her template in jpg form to make for easy printing.  Here is a copy for you…  Polaroid JPG Template

I haven’t tried making these myself but I have a few thoughts……

Perhaps foam board would work as a substitute for the cardstock or cardboard.  It comes in white and you wouldn’t have to color the edges after cutting.

I think when I do mine I might spray the entire thing with Krylons Workable Fixatif before hanging on the fridge for a little protection.  Seems like my hands are always wet, etc. in the kitchen. 

Let me know if any of you try these and how it works out.
