INSTANT PHOTO CRAFTS INSTRUCTIONS:

To Create the Mini Instant Photo Magnets:

  1. Paint the craft rectangle white. Allow to dry.
  2. Size in the computer and then cut out your photos out using scissors or an X-Aacto knife and ruler as the paint dries on the rectangle. Use the template to help size if desired. PRO TIP: Vertical (portrait) photos are better for the mini magnets, horizontal (landscape) photos are better for the coasters.
  3. Attach the photo with mod podge. Paint a thin layer of mod podge onto the painted wood with a foam brush, place the photo and paint another layer of mod podge on top. Allow to dry. PRO TIP: If the photo bubbles a bit, let it dry slightly and go back over it with mod podge and the foam brush to flatten the photo.
  4. Glue the magnet to the back of the faux mini instant photo in the center and enjoy!

To Create the Instant Photo Coasters:

  1. Size in the computer and then cut out the photos using scissors or an x-acto knife. PRO TIP: Vertical (portrait) photos are better for the mini magnets, horizontal (landscape) photos are better for the coasters.
  2. Attach the photo with mod podge. Paint a thin layer of mod podge onto the painted wood with a foam brush, place the photo and paint another layer of mod podge on top. Allow to dry. PRO TIP: if the photo bubbles a bit, let it dry slightly and go back over it with mod podge and the foam brush to flatten the photo.
  3. Adhere the cork backing to the back of the coaster. Peel the backing off of cork for the coaster that comes with the craft tiles or cut your own cork material to size and adhere with hot glue. Enjoy!
