The fridge is the first spot where many of our family pictures first get displayed if they make it out of digital format! A nice way to display them is in these easy magnetic fridge picture frames. These make a great gift for grandma and other relatives and friends too!
Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age (with some parent help cutting)
Small Exacto knife (needs to be sharp and precise)
Felt pens, paint, sequins, buttons, stickers and/or jewels for decorating.
Cut a piece of card stock in half. Measure the opening that you desire for your frame. We used a 4 X 6 inch opening in a half piece of card stock. Cut out the opening with a sharp craft knife.
We wanted to add some pizzaz to our frame so we planned a heart petal flower for the corner.
The heart petal flower requires 6-7 hearts. We used a template for this so that all the hearts were the same size. The hearts will be folded so if you want to start with a paper fold and cut out, it will be faster. To create the flower, glue the hearts on your frame in a circle with the points facing in.
Decorate the rest of the frame as you wish.
Cut a piece of light cardboard just smaller than your frame. Attach the magnetic tape strips on the back side.
Spread glue about 2 cm in width around the sides and bottom of the front side of the cardboard. Let the glue dry completely. Leave the top portion with no glue so that you may slide a picture in and out. Make sure to let the glue dry completely.
Insert a picture of your choice and display on your fridge or give as an extra special gift!
