I've used one of my own photos of a view from my home back garden, cropped it and placed it in the middle towards the top of the blank canvas. Of course, for true polaroid style, leave a gap at the bottom of the image. This entirely depends on how big you want your photos, you don't have to stick to the dimensions I've noted, you can alter at your own will. The joys of making your own polaroid.
Also, to make sure you can cut the correct size out when you've printed them, slightly darken the background to a very light grey. This way you'll be able to see the shape of the image when it prints.
Of course, to get the full effect you need more than one photo. I chose nine favourite photos to make into polaroids, and these all fit perfectly onto an A4 glossy photo paper sheet. Cut each one out individually, take care to keep the polaroid shape. I accidentally cut one too short without thinking and had to reprint it - oops.
To hang these photos, you will need:
1) Your photos
2) Wooden pegs
3) Brown string (or white, depends on what colours your walls are or your personal preference, or even whatever you've got in the draw?)
4) Drawing pins
The rest is quite easy: hang your string up with your pins, perhaps with a slight slack in so you can make a lovely curve in your string. And spread each photo out with equal space between along the string. Et voilà!
Hopefully this tutorial will be able to save you a few hundred pounds on a new polaroid camera! I hope you've enjoyed reading and following along, and hopefully you'll take the time to create your own polaroids for your own decoration. If so, let us know and post here so we can all take a look!Again, thank you for hosting and let me know if you're unable to do so. Look forward to hearing from you! -Rebecca http://revkah.blogspot.com
