"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Simple is the name of the game with these photo magnets.
Using only a few ingredients you can turn small photos into awesome pieces of refrigerator art.
They are fun to make, easy on the brain and cute as all get out. Once you make the first one you’ll want to start an assembly line of relaxation. A very productive assembly line of relaxation.
Simple, short and sweet. Score!
Why It’s Cool
Sometimes it’s nice to have a project to do that doesn’t take much set up or clean up… AND that makes a super cute finished product!
These photo magnets fit the easy bill and dazzle like special little gems showcasing your memories.
STEP 1: Ring Around the George Washington
Use a quarter to trace a circle around the part of your photo that you want to turn into a magnet.
STEP 2: Cut a circle
Cut out the circle you just traced.
Make sure you cut off the pen marks because those will be magnified if ya don’t get rid of them.
STEP 3: A light layer of glue
Place glue on the flat side of a glass circle.
Get a nice thin even layer on the entire back of the circle. A little goes a long way.
STEP 4: Make it permanent
Place your circular photo face down in the glue.
Hold the image down in the glue for 30 seconds to make sure the photo doesn’t drift around.
STEP 5: Glue the magnet
Place a light layer of glue on one side of the magnet.
Adhere the magnet to the back of the the photo you just glued down.
Let the glue dry for a couple of hours, and you’re all set (cuz so is the glue)!
