Love Knots Funky Fridge Magnet Frame


Hi everyone! How are you doing?

Today I'm returning to one of my all-time Gel-à-Tins favourite sets - Love Knots!

I created a photo frame with this set last year, but today wanted to give it another modern twist and create a magnetic frame with some on-trend colours:



Fun right?! And really simple to create!


I started by die cutting the Polaroid frame and stamping Love Knots on it with watermark ink. I then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Such a stunning effect!!


Gold, coral and black is such an on-trend colour combo right now, and I wanted to recreate that so I took a fine paintbrush and selectively coloured some areas of the frame with coral and black inks. So simple and gives such a funky finish!


I finished up by backing my frame with a few layers of coaster board, taking care to trim a gap in the middle layer to accept a photo. I added some adhesive magnetic sheet to the back and voilà - a funky fridge magnet frame, customisable with your own photo!
