Kenzie is still infatuated with Disney's Frozen even though she also loves the other princesses. She also brings home a lot of pamphlets, schedules and assignments from school that I tack onto the fridge. I thought it would be fun for her to make her "own" magnets with a little Frozen flair. These are super simple and can be made with literally any character or print out you want.
- 1 inch circle punch
- Adhesive magnetic tape strips
- 1 inch epoxy circle stickers
- white paper/cardstock
- You can either print this Frozen printable or create your own with images about 1-1.25 inches in size. I used regular printer paper but you can also use cardstock.
- Cut around each individual photo. It doesn't have to be perfectly straight.
- Using the circle punch, center the photo and then punch away. I had Kenzie turn the punch around so she could easily see how to center each photo.
- Cut the adhesive magnetic tape strips into about 3/4 inch pieces. Set aside.
- Peel the backing off of the epoxy circle stickers and stick on each photo face up. There was a tiny learning curve of lining up the edges perfectly. Since you are working with a paper photo, it's a one time shot as the paper will stick if you try to peel. It took Kenzie about 2 tries before getting the hang of it.
- Peel of the backing on the magnet and stick to the back of each photo.
- Voila - ready to stick onto the fridge!
In addition to being great at keeping those important papers and notes properly displayed on the fridge, these are fun to coordinate with a party theme and give out as favors or even as teacher gifts. Kenzie and Mason both tried to put these fun Frozen photo magnets onto their own fridge! I need to figure out a way to put some sort of board on there so they will stick.
The possibilities in size are endless as you just need to find the appropriate punch and epoxy stickers. Kenzie is itching to make more soon since Mason has confiscated half her batch. Have you tried making your own photo magnets?
