Print your favorite moments from your phone with the HP Sprocket and turn them into magnets that can be displayed anywhere!

My phone is packed with random photos and special memories throughout the past couple of years. Instead of just letting them sit in my phone, I’ve decided to print out my favorites on the HP Sprocket to display in my home and in my workspace. The HP Zink Photo Paper has a sticky backing so that you can easily display your photos. Once you stick your photos to a magnetic sheet, you instantly have DIY Photo Magnets that can be shared and displayed on a metal-backed frame, on a refrigerator, and even in school lockers!

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Open up the HP Sprocket Photo Printer and load the HP ZINK Photo Paper (according to instructions).

  1. Instead of using my images as stickers, I wanted to be able to display multiple photos in a metal-backed frame on my gallery wall. To be able to change them out easily without damaging any photos, I decided to mount the photo paper on an adhesive magnetic sheet.
