Love Frame and Refrigerator Magnet
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.
