One of my first days on Pinterest, I stumbled upon this adorable photo of mini polaroid magnets. Are you kidding me? It doesn't get much cuter than this. It originates from the Ambrosia Creative Blog.

I couldn't wait to make them! Her tutorial was wonderful but I do not have Photoshop so I had to think of another way.
I bought these cheap wooden squares and rectangles at Hobby Lobby. I wasn't sure which shape I wanted to use.
I ended up choosing rectangle although I think either would work.
1.) Paint your squares or rectangles with white paint.
I painted the front, back, & sides.
2.) Choose your pics and size them down to fit on your chosen shape.
I copied my pics into a word document and sized them to 0.75" x 0.75".
3.) Print the pics and cut them out.
4.) Glue the pics in place.
5.) Apply a light coating of Mod Podge to protect the photo.
6.) Glue a heavy duty magnet to the back.
7.) Sit back and admire.
8.) Last but not least, put them on your refrigerator or give them away for somebody else to admire!
Okay, I have to admit that my method does not deliver the same amazing results as the original tutorial I found through Pinterest.
I still love them though.
