Inspired By.....

Polaroid/Instagram Frames!  Over at Paper Crafter's Corner we are creating layouts that are inspired by the popular items from CHA, but with using our stash!  So I want to share my "inspired by" layout with you! 

Here is the layout I created using the polaroid frames I made:

Here is how I made it:
I found these frames to be super cute and so fun to play with.  I love how they make a photo pop!  First I cut a piece of cardstock 8 1/2 x 3 1/4. 

 Then fold it in half.  **Note you do not have to make them fold in half you could just make a piece to put over your picture**

I then opened the paper back up and cut a 3×3 square.  I came down from the fold 1/4 if an inch so you have a 1/4 inch around 3 sides and a bigger space at the bottom (like a poloaroid).

Here is what it looks like after the cut out.

 And here is what it looks like with a picture and folded.

And here is a close up:
