Quick thoughtful gift that is fun for the whole family!
With Valentines this week I was inspired to make thoughtful Valentine’s day cards for my niece and nephew. When they last visited me in the summer we had done a little photo shoot. I didn’t really have a theme or idea with the shoot so when I was editing them I kept thinking, what am I going to do with these photos? All the photos were pretty goofy and thought it would be funny to edit them into a super hero kind of picture. My editing skills are not next level so I problem solved and found what i believe is maybe something even cuter!
How to magnetize your adorable photos!
Super easy and all you need is a few things.
-Print outs of your favourite photos
-a large print out of a scene
-double sided tape
- You do need to have a little foresight to have these items on hand. Start by getting new action shots of the people you want to make into magnets. This can easily be done on a white wall. Simply bring them to a drug store that makes prints.
- After developing the photos you will need to buy the magnetic sheet and double sided tape (both I was able to buy at Dollarama). I had printed a stock image as a 11 x14 from the same place I developed the prints from.
- Cut loosely around the images you want so you can easily know where to add the double sided tape. I also did this so when they were stuck to the magnetic sheet it did not waste excess space.
- Use sharp scissors and cut around the images closer.
Viola- That is it!
I can not wait to see my sister and her family using these fun magnets! I can only imagine the funny stories they will come up with and where these funny faces will end up.
If this post inspires you to make them I would love to see them!
