Magnetic Photo Frames

My kids are obsessed with my Instax Camera. They love taking photos of themselves, me, our animals, their legos… anything they can capture in the camera frame. As soon as they take the photo, they get to watch it appear like magic on the photo paper. I love finding fun ways to display their photos, like this Instax Cartridge Frame, and these fun Magnetic Photo Frames that are perfect for a Valentine’s Display!
