Frame Magnet

Use old promotional magnets & salvaged cardboard to make a new photo frame magnet.

Cut two identical shapes from a piece of salvaged cardboard. They can be a circle, square, oval, etc. One piece will be the frame and the other piece will be the backing.

Cut a hole in the shape of your choice from one of the pieces of cardboard. This is the frame. The uncut piece is the backing. The hole should be large enough so that the portion of the photo you’re using that you want to show will show. Decorate this piece of cardboard in any way you choose.

Glue the photo onto the cardboard backing. Glue the frame onto the backing over the photo.

Glue a magnet salvaged from a promotional magnet or broken decorative magnet to backside of backing.

are you in the mood for another craft project?

About Kat

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
