How-To: Instagram Photo Magnets


Bring your internet-based snapshots into the real world with this fun Instagram photo magnet tutorial from Max on Design Sponge!

I’m not usually one to get sentimental over obsolete technology, but there is something to be said about an image that isn’t on a screen—one that you can hold in your hands and look at to raise your spirits on a bad day. Today, the family refrigerator has been replaced by Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Still, that doesn’t mean that these images can’t be re-appropriated into the physical realm. To honor the lost art of the refrigerator photo, I decided to craft some magnets from printed Instagram photos. The results are not only beautiful, but they’re also remarkably cheap and easy to achieve.
