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!

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
