DIY Polaroid Display πŸ“·βœ‚οΈπŸ’•

 

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😁

 

 

Items needed

 

β€’ 9 Binder clips in preferred metal/color
β€’ Wooden board, I used 27cm x 38cm
β€’ Self adhesive wallpaper/Drawer Liner
β€’ Scissors
β€’ Strong double-sided tape
β€’ 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 πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

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 πŸ˜‰

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 VoilΓ !! πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’•

 

 

I’d love to see your results if you try this project out!
