Welcome to the final day of Week One of Camp Dolliwatha!
For today’s craft, we’re making doll-size Polaroids!
Start by taking the pictures that you want to turn into Polaroids. I did a photobooth with my dolls: the background is scrapbook paper taped to the wall, and the props are foam glued to kabob sticks.
Upload the pictures to your computer. Then go to PicMonkey.com, scroll over “Edit,” and select “Computer.”
A screen will pop up asking you to click the photo you’d like to edit. Find the pictures you uploaded to your computer earlier and select one.
Once you’ve chosen a photo, PicMonkey will take you to the editing screen. Find the picture of the frame in the left menu and click on it.
Once the Frames screen has loaded, scroll down until you find the Polaroid Frame option. Apply.
Press the “Save” button on the top of the page.
Follow the directions on the Save screen.
Once you’ve edited all your pictures to look like Polaroids, go to Google Docs (or any document program) and create a new document. Click the Insert button on the top left and select Image.
Upload the Polaroids and insert them into the document.
Make them small — mine are 1″ 1/2 by 1″ 1/4. Print out the document on card stock paper, and cut out the pictures. (If they’re not the right size, you can just change it in Google Docs and try again.)
How cute are these?
I found the mini clothespins at Michael’s, and clipped them onto some string to create a little display of goofy photobooth Polaroids.
For Week Two of Camp Dolliwatha, I’ll be handing the baton to Josie, who is doing an acting theme. Visit her blog from July 25 – 30 for more crafts.
If you made this craft, email me up to three pictures at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll include your photo(s) in the weekly Camp Dolliwatha recap post on Saturday!
