Camp Dolliwatha, Week One: Polaroids

Welcome to the final day of Week One of Camp Dolliwatha!

Polaroids

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.

1-PicMonkey's Photo Editor Free Online Image Editing - Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Verizon Online 7192016 125634 PM

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.

6-Fullscreen capture 7192016 125855 PM

Follow the directions on the Save screen.

7-Untitled document - Google Docs - Mozilla Firefox 7192016 10508 PM

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.

8-Untitled document - Google Docs - Mozilla Firefox 7192016 10514 PM

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.)

You’re done!

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 happyhouseofag@gmail.com. I’ll include your photo(s) in the weekly Camp Dolliwatha recap post on Saturday!

  1. The photo booth is awesome!

    I’m not fond of the way Picmonkey changed the polaroid frame option. It used to be right on like the photos were back in the 70s and 80s. Perhaps there was some sort of kerfuffle with the camera company and it had to be changed. 😦 Essentially what would be really nice if they had the straight on and the skewed and the battered versions to choose from on that frame style.
