Step 1: Materials
Here's what you'll need to make these cute magnets:
- back covers of old calendars (I am using 2013 Minnie Mouse / 2015 Animal Safari / 2015 Butterflies / 2011 Tinker Bell / 2015 Pets Rock)
- an Instagram paper pad (or glitter paper if you prefer)
- X-acto knife
- self-stick magnets
Step 2: Cut the Paper
So, for each magnet, cut 2 small squares from a piece of Instagram paper. Take one of the squares and use an X-acto knife to cut away an inner square to make a frame. Set that aside.
Step 3: Add Calendar Picture
Cut a picture from a calendar back cover, trim to fit inside of a glitter square, and glue it to the center. Then, glue the frame on top. Let dry.
Step 4: Add Magnet
Finally, simply attach a self-stick magnet to the back and it's done!
Step 5: Create a Gallery
Now, you can add these magnets to the fridge door and make your own calendar photo art gallery! Or you can make a set of magnets to use as an artsy gift! These cute pint-size magnets go way beyond the creativity of the classic Instagram photo!
