Are you as big a fan of summer as I am? Warm weather, trips to the pool, late nights, watermelon…there’s just so many things to love about this time of year! For us, the only thing more prevalent during summertime than sunscreen is picture-taking so I wanted to make a fun frame to celebrate the memories. This magnetic picture frame tropical craft is easy to make with colorful paper and tropical-themed die cuts. There are tons of ways to customize this project to make it 100% your own!
- DCWV Matchmakers Brights Cardstock Stack
- Tropical Leaf Embossing Folder
- Momenta Tropical Theme Die Cuts
- Gemini™ Junior Die Cutting Machine
- Xyron Create-a-Sticker
- Spectrum Noir Brights Alcohol Markers
- Inkjet Printable Magnetic Sheets
- Pop-Up Adhesive Foam Dots
Once you’ve got all your supplies ready, begin by cutting out the die cut shapes and pressing the embossing folder into a sheet of green cardstock.
Trim the piece of embossed green card stock and use as a template to cut out an equal sized piece of magnetic paper.
Run the embossed cardstock through the sticker maker and then press the two sheets together.
Use a ruler to measure a 1.5″ border around the magnetic frame.Use a pair of sharp scissors to trim out the center.
Decide where you’re planning on place all the cutouts and then strategically add the foam dots in the right location.
Continue adding the cut outs until you’re happy with the look. At this point, you can either leave the frame as is or…
Use alcohol markers to add come contrasting colors to make the paper cut outs pop on the green background!
This magnetic frame tropical craft is the perfect way to show off one of my favorite summer memories. Consumer Craft has a ton of different embossing folders and die cut sets to take this idea and totally customize how you see fit.
