DIY Polaroid Photos WITHOUT a Polaroid Camera!

Hey DIYers! Today I'm going to show you how to make DIY Polaroid Photos WITHOUT a Polaroid camera. Polaroid cameras cost SO much money, plus you have to buy the film, and in my opinion, it's not worth the expense when you can just make your own polaroids for super cheap! Let's get started.

You will need:
- Copy and paste this polaroid border in Microsoft Word. Resize as needed, and then print.
- An exacto knife
- White cardstock paper (or you can use others if you don't want the classic polaroid frame color)

2. Paint one or both pieces of your balsa wood however you would like them to suit your room. One coat of acrylic works fine if it's a dark colour but you may need a few coats for something lighter.
3. Measure up where to put your hooks that will fit 3 different cards on one piece of wood. Then you should easily be able to screw them in.
4. Assemble your stand by g…
