How To ~ Magnetic Polaroid Frames

We’re all getting the photo snapping bug in our home, which results in a lot of photos we want to display.

I’ve been looking for a quick and simple way to display these pics which doesn’t involve either drilling or hammering in to a wall, I fell back on to one of my favourite craft items…magnetic paper!

{magnetic paper / washi tape / photos}

Divide each sheet of magnetic paper in to 4, fold in half left to right and then top to bottom.

Cut each sheet, use a guillotine to ensure straight edges.
