Wooden Polaroid Magnets

Using scrapbooking embellishments, make a fun gallery on your fridge with these simple wooden Polaroid magnets.

Awhile back I had this idea to take thin craft-wood rectangles and cut squares out of the center with a jigsaw to make Polaroid-shaped photo frames. The project sat on my craft to do list for weeks.

Imagine my surprise when I finally went to buy the wood and found pre-cut Polaroid rectangles whilst looking for something entirely unrelated in the scrapbooking section of the store!

An easy craft made even easier.

2. Apply glue to back of one frame. Place photo and press to attach well. Repeat for each frame. Trim edges of photos if necessary.

3.  Apply one or two peel and stick magnets to back of each framed photo.

Now go display your mini photo gallery right on your fridge!

(And if you can’t find the pre-cut shapes, you can still go the jigsaw route too!)

    Shannon, these are darling! I love all things Polaroid and Instagram and square-shaped…and I’m going to have to keep my eye out for those little wooden frame embellishments. That…or invest in that jigsaw that I’ve have on my wish list! Ha ha. Pinning!

    I’d like to add one caveat. All color photos, but especially Polaroids, it seems to me, are very light-sensitive and will fade. So if it’s precious, you might want to make a good scan of that Polaroid before you put it on the fridge.

      Thanks, Jan. Although these aren’t actual Polaroids – they’re just framed in Polaroid shaped frames! But yes, if you’re using actual Polaroids, be careful with them. 🙂
