Getting Photos Out of Magnetic Albums

Having trouble getting your old photos out of those sticky magnetic albums? Don’t despair. You can use a micro-spatula (a small science tool about the size of a large crochet hook, but with a soft rounded edge) and gently ease this under the photo to separate the photo from the sticky page. These can be expensive, so a “multi-purpose tool” can be ordered from Creative Memories for $9 and will work wonders and last years. Other scrapbooking companies and stores likely have similar items for getting those embellishments off the pages. Drop by a store or check online for a dealer nearby and start getting those precious photos OUT of those sticky albums and into archival safe ones that will keep them preserved for decades.

  1. I have used dental floss. Just work it around the perimeter then slowly, gently inward to remove the photo from the adhesive. It worked great.
