Magnetic Attraction…

Happy Monday everybody…. We’ll skip over Saturday morning’s early start and disappointing result and hope instead you all had lovely weekends ;0) We came across today’s project to make these adorable mini magnets when we were hunting down some polaroid paraphernalia and thought it was just too cute… Now we know it’s not necessarily a ‘wedding’ project, but just think of all the ways it could be! Save the dates, little take-home gifts, thank you momentos or even how about using pics of all your guests and combining them on a large metal backdrop to create the seating plans or guest book!! In the fantastic ‘sharing and caring’ nature of the web Jennifer Kirk of www.ambrosiagirl.com adapted a project she saw on www.howaboutorange.blogspot.com and created a little mini-polaroid frame download to make it super-easy to make your own magnets! See the whole process here (we’ve abbreviated it a little bit…) Enjoy, Aoife & Deirdre xx

Pick some of your favourite piccies and use Jennifer’s polaroid frame to turn them into little photos. Get download from Jennifer here… Then mount the printed sheet onto board (you can get foamboard or card from most craft shops or stationers). Cut out the individual polaroids and colour around the edges in white chalk marker (or Tippex!!) to create a ‘block’ effect. Then just stick some magnetic tape to the back and use a wide sellotape on the front to create a glossy front and voila….. your mini-pics are ready for any welcoming piece of metal!!!

We also had to include some images from the original project on www.howaboutorange.blogspot.com – we’re loving the cute little pantone magnets….
