Being part of the design team here on Blitsy and seeing all the other ladies amazing projects, has really challenge me as a crafter! Meaning, that I try my best each month to create some DIYs that I think you guys and my fellow team members will love! With that being said, there are those times when I have no clue what I'm going to be making. This month was one of those months.
No matter what idea I came up with, I just didn't like it. It was either too complicated, not for the right season or just not an exciting project. So I took a little trip to the craft store to clear my head. As I was walking down the scrapbooking aisle, I happened to notice little Polaroid cut outs which were designed for pictures. Somehow my brain went from scrapbooking cut outs to a Polaroid Mirror. Then I thought a Polaroid Mirror didn't sound half bad and might make a cute project (especially since the back to school decorating season is upon us).
So today I'm going to be showing you all how you can make your own Polaroid Mirror!
To make the Polaroid Mirror, I decided to use a piece of foam board as my base. You may be thinking that a material like foam board would not be a strong enough base for a mirror that would be hanging on a wall. However in this case, the combination of a light weight mirror and E6000 glue, ended up making a really sturdy mirror.
Now when it comes to foam board, you do have options. For example, foam board can be found in different colors and thickness. So if you are concerned about the use of foam board in a mirror project, you can buy a thicker piece of foam board which will help create a stronger base for your mirror. The thickness of the foam board that I'm using in this project is 1/8''.
