The kids at Shelby Park Community Center summer camp sure were creative with their magazine and cardboard picture frames. Seems they had a lot of fun as well...
Here are the instructions for making this fun magnetic picture frame.
What you need:
- Colorful magazines, the one time the more ads the better.
- Piece of cardboard, about 5x8" but whatever size you want. It could be from a mac'n cheese or cereal box. Mine was from a UPS envelope that I'd gotten.
- Glue (Stick or bottle)
- Straw (I used a small one, for kids the bigger, thicker ones are better)
- Advertisement magnets
Cut the center out.
I made it 3.5x5.5"
Cut the cardboard to the size you want.
|Make sure you use colorful magazine pages and cut into strips.|
|Using the straw, roll your strip twice around the straw and cut.|
Add glue to the end and seal.
|Glue the roll to your frame.|
|Those outdated magnets found on your phone books...|
|Cut two strips from your magnet|
|Glue magnets on the back side. Make sure to align with the inside edge .|
|Hang on your fridge with a 4x6" picture behind it.|
|Another option for rolling the magazine strips.|
|I did this one with just torn pieces of magazine for the younger kids at the camps.|
