Little Gifts: Mini Polaroid Picture Tile Magnets

i had some tile squares left over from fixing up our house. i was deciding whether to return them to the store, when i got the idea to pull them apart and make some mini polaroid pictures out of the 1″ tiles. then i thought….how about making them into magnets to put on my fridge.  so there you have it. thats how i created polaroid picture tile magnets!

i am so happy with how they turned out. i just recently got some fabulous pictures of my boys by one of my good friends and uber talented photographer Tonya Joy, and what a fun way to display some of them on my refrigerator.

now i am for sure going to make some more sets of these for gifts this holiday season. i’ve been thinking up some creative packaging ideas. i think everyone will love them. super easy. super inexpensive. but oh so super cute!

wanna make some of your own?!?!
Mini Polaroid Picture Tile Magnets:
what you need:
• 1″ white tiles (i got mine for $2.49 per sheet at Home Depot, it made 25 magnets)
 photos printed out on photo paper or cardstock
 3/4″ magnets
 Mod Podge (or other all-in-one glue, sealer and finish)
 E-6000 industrial strength adhesive
 prepare 1″ tiles by scraping any glue off of the back and sides. (old scissors did the trick)
 glue magnet to the back of each tile with E-6000 industrial strength adhesive. let dry.
 cut your photos out to size 3/4″ by 5/8″
 brush Mod Podge on the back of each photo and glue onto the top of each of your tile magnets. let dry.
 brush Mod Podge over the top of the photo and entire top of each tile to seal photo. let dry
 whala! you now have polaroid picture tile magnets!
