DIY Polaroids + Free Cut File! This week’s Silhouette Saturday is a super simple project but I love how they turned out.
*****BREAKING NEWS: For all of you silhouette lover’s out there, my friend Kimber of The Pinning Mama and I have created a new Silhouette Facebook Group where you can share what you are working on, get inspired by others, and ask all the questions you have- no matter how basic or complex! Our goal is to be a community for the crafty where we can learn and be inspired! If you would love to learn more about your Silhouette, share what you are up to, and find new project inspiration then come hang out with us by requesting to join the Silhouette Facebook group here. And…. did I mention we give a FREE Silhouette cut file EVERY Friday!? Can’t wait to see you there!*********
With so much being digital these days, I’ve been horrible about printing out pictures. Other than our wedding album (which took me 5 years to have printed) and the kids’ baby albums, I’ve failed to print a single photo album. So I’ve made it a goal to start printing more of the photos we take.
I love the look of Polaroid pics so inspiration struck and I created a DIY version that takes just minutes to assemble and is the same size as the real version.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these fun little pics:
- Silhouette CAMEO (or Portrait)
- Cutting Mat
- White Adhesive Cardstock
- Free Polaroid Cut File
- Family pics/Images sized to about 3.25″ square, printed and trimmed (I printed mine on the same linen overstock paper I use for all my prints)
Using the white adhesive cardstock is what makes this project go so fast! Open the cut file in Silhouette Studio. Arrange 3 sets of the polaroids on the 12×12 page. Cut on the linen overstock. Your Silhouette software suggests a blade level of 4, but if your blade isn’t brand new go to a 5 to ensure a clean cut.
Then just sandwich your pictures between the front and black of the Polaroid frame.
Repeat until complete. So easy, right?!
