25 Days of Christmas-Winter Polaroids {1 Project=3 Meaningful Uses}

 Happy Friday & welcome to

25 Days of Christmas hosted by the sweet and incredibly talented

Dear Emmeline. 

Today will be my last creative post of the year,

so I wanted to share with you a project that was fun but also meaningful.

I can still remember vividly my  Shane’s first Christmas, he wore a Santa hat & PJ’s from my sister Jackie,

I can remember the image of John holding Shane while he touched snow for the first time  off our back porch of our 1st home in Colorado.

I can still see Jack walking through the snow for the first time with his big brother not quite sure whether to be  scared or excited


I can see {& hear} Jack when he  built his first snowman & cried so hard his tears froze because he wanted to eat Frosty’s Oreo eyes:).

These are the moments we remember & hold onto for a lifetime.

I love being able to display these beautiful memories, especially at the holidays:).

City Farmhouse-25 Days of Christmas- 1 projects=3 meaninful uses So I went through all of my old winter photos.

I took a handful that I loved & uploaded them to Pic Monkey.

I went to frames & clicked Polaroid.

I then clicked text and added in names & year.

I saved to my computer & printed

I printed on thick cardstock,

tip- if you want them thicker, spray the back of each image with Tacky Spray

& adhere to watercolor paper{ it won’t go through your printer}, then cut around frame.

It is that easy:).

Here are 3 meaningful uses for this fun project……

1. Gift tags{which will then become ornaments}

In a day in age where everyone’s images are stuck on their phones or computers

it is a nice way to bring these memories to life once again:).

How fun is this to do a picture for each of your guests,

they will love this & they will be able to take it home & place it on their tree

to treasure for years to come.
