Love Frame and Refrigerator Magnet

By:

This Love Frame and Refrigerator Magnet is a sweet accent for any kitchen, and it's so fun to make! Among the materials you'll need for this project are a favorite photo and a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Put a picture of your valentine in one of these cute DIY photo magnets, and you'll smile every time you pass the refrigerator.  This polymer clay tutorial also teaches you how to make a smaller, coordinating magnet that says "Love." This is an adorable craft for February, especially, but it looks great all year.

 

 

Materials:

  • FIMO® Soft Polymer Clay — White, Raspberry, Cherry Red
  • AMACO® PolyRoller
  • AMACO® Pasta Machine
  • Heart Shaped Paper Punch (Fiskars®)
  • Heart Shaped Cookie Cutters
  • Flat Magnets

 

Instructions:

Please supervise children when working with sharp objects to prevent injury. Cookie Cutters used for polymer clay should not be re-used for food.

  1. Mix a 1/4" ball of Raspberry FIMO® Soft with a 1" White ball until light pink.
     
  2. Flatten pink to the thinnest setting of pasta machine. Bake flat for 15 minutes. Allow to cool, then punch out heart shapes.
     
  3. Flatten White FIMO® Soft on the thickest setting of pasta machine.
     
  4. Stack white to a double thickness then cut out desired heart shape. Cut out center with smaller heart. Press in pre-baked pink heart shapes as desired.
     
  5. Roll a 1/4" diameter log of each color: White, Raspberry, and Cherry Red. Twist together. Continue rolling into a log, twisting pattern to make a swirl. Wrap logs around outside and inside of frame.
     
  6. With cut out heart, apply the word ‘love’ by shaping the swirled log into letters. Trim with swirled log.
     
  7. Bake for one hour at 265ºF (130ºC).
