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)
- Your own photos that will fit inside the polaroid frame.
- A pencil
- Scotch tape

Steps:
1. Using your exacto knife, carefully out the center of the polaroid frame you printed.
2. Trace the polaroid frame on your cardstock paper.
3. Use the exacto knife to cut out the center of your cardstock polaroid frames.
4. Tape your photos to the polaroid frames.

You're done! I hope you enjoyed this DIY tutorial for DIY Polaroid Photos! Tip: If you filter your photos first to be faded and washed out, they'll look more like real polaroids! Stay tuned for more DIYs coming soon! -Madi from DIY With Madi
