Magnetic Photo Frames make great gifts, for weddings, valentines or birthdays. Make and sell blank (that people can decorate themselves) or custom designed magnetic frames.

Process
You will use a 50mm round hollow punch to punch holes in 90x90mm squares of magnetic sheet. This will create a photo frame. The magnetic sheet can be cut into squares using a guillotine or craft knife and steel ruler.

You will get 30 photo frames from a 610x457mm piece of magnetic sheet. You can make even more money selling custom magnets (see further reading links at the bottom).
