Lil Polas

It's true, I'm a sucker for a good craft/anything artsy.  I love a good craft blog.  So when I stumbled upon these lil cuties here, I couldn't resist making some myself!

Granted, hers look WAY better than mine, but I was working with what I had here people, ok? ;)  (In other words, I haven't found the local craft store yet hehe!)

May I introduce you to our new little polaroid (or pola) magnets?

It really was quite simple.  I just followed her tutorial.  I used the polaroid template she provided and then added my own personalized pics.  I then resized them down to a much smaller magnet-like size.

I brought them all into a big document and printed them out.  If I had had photo paper, I would have used that, but I didn't, so I just went with regular paper.  They would look better on photo paper.

Then I glued them on to some thick cardboard (I reused an old Ikea box) and taped over them with clear tape to give them that polaroid glossy effect.  Then I cut them out!

The hardest part was finding magnets around here.  BUT I did finally find them (thank you, Tesco)!  I glued those on the back and voila!  Adorable mini polaroid mags.

I think I'm in love :)


  1. Those are so cute, Char!! Thanks for the crafty idea! Oh, and congrats on baby GIRL Palmer!! So excited to see what you guys are going to name her. Love you both and you are in my prayers daily!! :)

  2. Love these!! So cute. You never cease to inspire me in a crafty way. I never would have known those were homemade Polaroids and not the real deal.

  3. Crafty just like your aunt Jill

  4. I so look forward to your blog...never know what you will come up next...but you always make me smile. Thanks for the crafty ideas...I will share with my co-workers for their children. Praying for all 3 of you!!!

  5. Too cute. Think this will most definitely be an art project with me and the boys soon. Also... how fun if you made new pola-magnets each year at Christmastime? Even the fridge gets decorated? And each kid each year gets a new one? Just a thought...especially for baby girl Palmer's first Christmas!!!


leave us some love!
