My girl started the 4th grade yesterday. 4th grade?! Time just doesn’t stop, does it?
I’m loving this age she’s at. She is such a sweet girl, and we have loved having so much time with her home this Summer.
This Summer, I saw these giant polaroid frames in the windows of one of my favorite “I’m-too-old-for-most-the-clothes-in-there-stores…Charlotte Rouse. I’ve been dreaming of them ever since! I love the classic look of the polaroid frame, and a giant one?! Even better!
My favorite thing about polaroid frames is the big space at the bottom for journaling or documenting the photo. These work great with digital photos, because you can photoshop the text in after the fact, like I did here. Awww, my cute 4th grade girl. <3
To make this giant polaroid frame, I hired my neighbor who’s great with wood working to cut a big 8ft x 4ft MDF board that we had. Here is how he cut the board to maximize the space. I had him make some regular polaroid frames as well as some shaped like those more narrow Intax mini frames.
These would be a great photo booth prop too! A bunch hanging from trees would be fun party decor, that way you wouldn’t have to hold them, because apparently they can get heavy..if you have skinny arms. 🙂
My girl had a great first day back, and I know she’ll have a great year.
Fun looking back: Here’s my girl on all her first days:
