Mini Polaroid Magnets

So I pretty much followed the tutorial with a few modifications. I designed my own Polaroids in Photoshop using a real Polaroid frame I scanned in (you can download below). I scaled my Polas down to about 0.8″ wide and then printed on photo paper. Using rubber cement, I mounted my printed sheet to chipboard (the back of an old spiral-bound sketch book worked just fine for me) and sort of laminated my mini photos by laying pieces of clear masking tape on top. The paper glaze didn’t work for this project as it was causing the ink to run and bleed.

Once trimmed out, instead of painting the edges white, I used a white opaque marker from Martha Stewart’s craft line, and colored in the edges.

After attaching the magnet pieces to the back, I had myself a new set of magnets
