DIY Polaroid Display 📷✂️💕
During our stay in Canada I seen a little Polaroid display that I liked but as I said, it was little.
I wanted to be able to display more than just a couple photos at a time, so I kept it in mind to attempt making myself, once we got back to Holland.
Mike and I picked up the supplies and then when he was away for the day, I decided it was time to recreate/slightly upgrade the design I’d seen😁
• 9 Binder clips in preferred metal/color
• Wooden board, I used 27cm x 38cm
• Self adhesive wallpaper/Drawer Liner
• Strong double-sided tape
• Duck tape or masking tape
(Size and binder clip number vary depending on personal preference.)
Thanks to my good friend Mel I already had the lovely gold binder clips 😉👌🏻
I’m sure you could find them at a number of places that sell home/office goods or at a craft store.
I love marble and marble look things so that of course was the drawer liner I chose, rather than leaving it plain.
If wallpaper/liner isn’t your thing, there are many other options like staining the wood, painting it or leaving it plain etc.
I had the board from leftover pieces from during our renos and luckily it was around the size I wanted.
Such a good feeling when everything actually aligns for a project 😉
I began by covering the board with the liner.
I had to pull it tight around the edges and secure it on the back with a strip of tape along each side, as the adhesive on the liner itself wasn’t strong enough to stick over the corners.
Next, I measured out the spacing of the binder clips, placing them at the intervals of 4.5 cm, 13.5 cm, 22.5 cm across.
Spacing is also more of a personal preference thing, in case you want less/more or if you have different sized photos.
I then adhered the binder clips with a piece of strong double-sided tape on the back of each one.
Add in some prized Polaroid shots and Voilà!! 😁👌🏻💕
