Trendy Flash!! Faux Polaroid Frames – Learn How with Video Tutorial

Faux Polaroid Technique with LovenStamps - Video Tutorial with Crystal Effects & Regarding Dahlias

Have you seen these cards all over the place?  The Faux Polaroid Frames are super trendy in papercrafting, both in the card making world AND in the scrapbooking world.

Want to get the look yourself?

Here are the DIY instructions for making Faux Polaroid Frames.


  • White card stock (100730 – dimensions: 3″ x 3-3/4″)
  • Squares Collection Framelits (130521)
  • Big Shot (113439)
  • Optional: Magnetic Platform (130658)

The steps are so simple – there’s only 1 step.  Yikes!

  1. Use the 2-1/2″ Square Framelit from the set to cut out the window.

I love the Faux Polaroid frame project with larger stamps that don’t quite fit in the window, like the flower here from the Regarding Dahlias stamp set (130327).

If you’d like the steps on what to do WITH your frame and adding some beautiful Crystal Effects gloss (101055) to your project, here’s a Video Tutorials from my Stamps in
