Nap Time Craft: Washi Tape Polaroid Magnets

DIY washi tape polaroid magnets - little button diaries

We’ve not done one of these in a while, primarily because our kids don’t nap anymore. We’re smack in the middle of holidays, with huge book commitments and limited child-free time, hence the reintroduction of short craft projects that can be fitted into nap times (or at least under an hour!). You can swap the artwork inside these Polaroid-style fridge magnets to keep your kitchen looking fresh.

You Will Need:

  • White card
  • Corrugated card
  • Magnetic strips
  • Washi Tape
  • Artwork/ photos/ blackboard Duck Tape
  • Glue gun

  1. Begin by cutting your white card to the dimensions 9.5cm wide x 11.5cm high. Then draw a square 2cm up from the bottom and 1/2cm in from the other edges. Cut this out to create the frame. Cover the front of the frame in Washi Tape.

2. Cut the corrugated card to the same size as the frame and add a thin layer of glue around the sides and bottom and stick the frame on top.

3. Slide your pictures or kids artwork into the frame. The nice thing with these frames is you can keep changing the photos and artwork round. If you want to make a blackboard duck tape frame add the duck tape onto the card before glueing the pieces together. You can add glue along the top for that one too.

4. Add a few magnetic strips on the back of the frames, stick on the fridge and admire!
