If you have recently sent your print photos to Kodak for digitizing, you might be wondering what you should do with all the originals now that you’ve gotten them preserved digitally. Some customers choose to throw their originals away, but in many cases, individuals find it hard to part from their beloved print photographs.
Luckily, there are so many wonderful DIY projects that utilize print photos, allowing them to be displayed in new, creative ways. One of our favorites is this photo fridge magnet DIY!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Photos of your choosing
- Honeycomb tile pieces (you can find these at most home improvement stores)
- 1 piece of paper
- Mod podge
- Magnet strip
- Superglue or hot glue
Cut small pieces of magnet off from the magnet strip. Using superglue or hot glue, attach the magnets to the backs of the honeycomb tiles.
Trace one honeycomb tile on your sheet of paper. Cut out the shape - now you can use this as a frame to choose which parts of your photos will become magnets!
Using the frame you made, trace the honeycomb shape on your photos in the desired locations. Cut the photo along the lines you drew.
Paint a small amount of mod podge on the back of your honeycomb cut-out photos and press the photos onto the honeycomb tile pieces. Let these dry for at least a few hours.
Arrange your new magnets all over your fridge in style!
It’s so easy to make beautiful crafts from your original photos. Now that you have them digitized, you can use the originals in all sorts of unique and fun ways! Get to crafting!
