Hi everyone! I’m happy to have Jessica from Jemstory sharing a lovely DIY project today! Read on to get all the details on how to make this DIY polaroid display board! Take it away, Jessica!
DIY Polaroid Clips Marble Display 📷✂️💕 by Jessica
During our stay in Canada I had 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 😁
- 9 Binder clips in preferred metal/color* (get it here)
- Wooden board, I used 27cm x 38cm (get it here)
- Self adhesive wallpaper/Drawer Liner (see marble paper here)
- Scissors (here)
- Strong double-sided tape (like this one)
- Duck tape or masking tape (here)
*Size and binder clip number vary depending on personal preference.
Thanks to my good friend Mel, I already had the lovely gold binder clips 😉👌🏻
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.
It’s such a good feeling when everything actually aligns for a project! 😉
Here are the steps:
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 Voilà!! 😁👌🏻💕
I’d love to see your results if you try this project out! -Jessica
