Around Thanksgiving I made this cute poster print on Mixbook of my babies wearing sunglasses and being insanely happy about it. It was so easy to make the poster and it turned out so cute. I also loved their selection of backgrounds and layouts. It was really easy to use their upload tool and making the poster took me no time at all. I was really pleased with the quality when it came in the mail as well. Especially considering both photos were taken with cell phone cameras.
What I wasn't sure of was how to display the poster in my home! That's when I had the idea to make a magnetic poster frame. I have always loved the minimalist look of these simple wooden frames but the price tag on the bigger frames was enough to turn me away. When I saw these paint stirrers for 5 gallon buckets for less than $2 how to make one struck me like lightening. Watch the video below to see how I did it.
I love how customizable these frames are. You can use them to hold a variety of size of prints and posters. And you can paint them, use a wood burner on them, or decorate with Washi tape.
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:
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.
