These gorgeous “polaroid” magnets have captured my heart! What a fantastic way to enjoy all your favourite pics.
The lovely Jenn over at Ambrosia has a full tutorial and more pics to inspire you. I love that these can be made using resources around the house too. Maybe even chop up some promotional magnets for the back (you know the flexible ones companies sometimes post out) and attach with a hot glue gun.
I’m so keen to get making some and the cute size just makes them all the more enticing.
Jenn’s blog is full of lovely photos and inspiring ideas, so be prepared to get sidetracked while you’re there!
