DIY faux polaroids
I love film pictures, especially polaroids. I wish I owned a polaroid camera, but I would spend all my money on film. For now, I will just make faux polaroid pictures! Here's a tutorial so you can make some too!
I drew a template of a polaroid with a ruler on an index card. Then I traced it on more index cards and cut them out.
Print out square photos. You could edit them to look like polaroids first, if you like. If you don't have a photo editing program, you can use a website like this one. Don't worry about making them the exact size you need, you can always trim them to fit.
Lay the photo face down on the back of the index card. Glue or tape the edges (if you use glue, make sure it's archival, because glue like Elmer's will alter the color of the photo).
And that is it! Super easy, right? And you don't have to spend a fortune on film.
