And they're the perfect thing to display my Mixbook poster prints. I can't wait to order more and change them out, because it's so easy to change the picture displayed in these frames!
Some tips for making these:
- Be sure to use strong ceramic magnets as the cheaper ones won't be able to stick through your print. Rare earth magnets aren't necessary, but would work as well.
- I only put three magnets in each side but if I were to do this again I'd do 4 or 5 just to make sure the hold is strong enough for thicker papers. (3 is perfect for my Mixbook print though)
- Instead of gluing the twine to the wood, next time I might get eyelets to screw into the top and tie the string to that.
- I bought my magnets in bulk and on sale on Amazon. ($8 for 100 the sale isn't happening right now but keep on the look out).
With Mother's Day (and Father's Day after that) coming up this could be an easy and thoughtful gift to give to your mother or grandmother! Especially if you include a photo print, of their favorite people.
Let us know how yours turns out!
