Place the transfer onto the cardstock. Leave a border of 1/4 inch (6 mm) from the top and
left and right sides and a wider 7/8 inch (2.2 cm) border at the bottom. (You can approximate
the height of the bottom edge to resemble a Polaroid image.) Press the packing tape transfer
down ﬁrmly to create your fauxlaroid. If the transfer doesn’t stick in places, use a dab of glue
stick to adhere. (See A and B.)

Hang fauxlaroids onto a string with clothespins for instant décor. These would be
wonderful in a kid’s room, on a wall for a quick seasonal design change, or for
festive party décor.
You can make a transfer on 5
or 6 inch (12.7 or 15.2 cm) wide
tape and cut down to Polaroid
size or line up two strips of
regular-width packing tape to
create your fauxlaroid.
