Here you can play around with your polaroid effect. You can first choose the desire polaroid template, than the rotation… I usually keep it on 0 as it straightens the image. Last thing is the Fade option. Here you can choose how vintage-y your image want it to look. I keep it on 100 as don’t want any of the effect applied on my image.

Than all you need to do is print it on the photo paper and cut with the crafty knife.

I also found another online photo editing tool which seems pretty cool and fun to use. Here you can choose and create polaroid effect frames and many more… You can also add a text on your polaroids to remember every fun moment with your loved ones. It is called Tuxpi Photo Editorย and it is awesome.
