Angie’s Polaroid Frame Tutorial
I found these frames to be super cute and so fun to play with. I love how they make a photo pop! First I cut a piece of cardstock 8 1/2 x 3 1/4. Then fold it in half. **Note you do not have to make them fold in half you could just make a piece to put over your picture**
I then opened the paper back up and cut a 3×3 square. I came down from the fold 1/4 if an inch so you have a 1/4 inch around 3 sides and a bigger space at the bottom (like a poloaroid).
Here is what it looks like after the cut out.
And here is what it looks like with a picture and folded.
Materials: Background paper Studio Calico “Dew” HeyDey. Other papers Studio Calico & MME; Circle stickers – Studio Calico; Cardstock for frames – Bazzill. Also American Crafts Thickers, Maya Road hanger, Jillibean Soup button, and Twinery Twine.
