I made these little wooden camera magnets on the weekend to give my fridge a bit of love. (Excuse the awkward drunken photobooth shots – as you can see Alan the boyfriend and I were having a grand ole time at a wedding)
As with all of my crafty projects, this one was really quick and simple and used just a few supplies – a fun little way to spruce up your fridge at home. Cute gift idea too if you’re planning on giving someone some printed photos!
- Balsawood sheets
- Xacto knife / stanley knife
- White washi tape or masking tape
- Flat magnet (I just cut up some old junk mail magnets)
- Strong craft glue or hot glue gun
- Letter stickers – I picked mine up from Paper2 in Surry Hills
Cut out a small rectangle from your balsa wood (take note of how satisfying it is to cut along the grain in balsa wood – so nice and glidey)
Give your camera a little white strip across the top with your tape
Pop on the “O” from your letter stickers, and also a small rectangle which you can snip from another letter. If you can’t find these exact stickers, I think any scrapbook letter stickers would work just as well, or you could glue any small disc shaped object too and paint it black, doesn’t need to be a ring shape.
Cut your magnet to size and glue it on to the back. I just used an old magnet that I received as junk mail from a local plumber or something (thanks for that, plumber man)
I also glued an extra bit of balsa wood to the top of my wee camera to look like the flash bulb – I recommend using a stronger glue than just craft glue if you’re going to glue this part as it can get a bit wobbly with such a small area.
Let the glue dry for a long while so it’s all nice and sturdy and you’re good to go make your fridge 10x prettier!
Keen to make mini fridges for my fridge now too – how cute would that be!!
