Currently in the Saatchi gallery, London there is the Chanel exhibition. Exploring the early life of Gabrielle Bonheur ''Coco'' Chanel and how through the years the brand itself has changed. The overall presentation of the exhibition is truly beautiful, every little detail has been thoroughly planned out, though I do recommend you book early to avoid the queues. After seeing the exhibition I personally see Chanel in a different light, it has made me aware of the brand and how its progressed over the years, its touching to see how Gabrielle took such care of her work and company, even into her old age, every little bit had been strategically planned out and had a personal touch to it. There's so much more that meets the eye, especially learning the history behind each piece. I really do recommend that you try and find the time to see it as words cant capture it!

SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE! 

I have recently noticed the rise in polaroid pictures, these cute white outlined photos that look great on walls, scrapbooks and even make the perfect unique gift. However,when browsing online and on apps I realised how expensive it is to get polaroids made. I thought, is it really that hard to make it yourself. The answer is No! It is surprisingly simple and doesn't take that long at all. This is a quick tutorial on how I found the best ways to make them, also being cost effective. 

What you need: 
Photo card/Glossy paper 
Craft knife 
Ruler

Step 1: Pick photos on your laptop or computer. Edit them or keep them natural. I found when picking out photos, the best polaroids were the ones that were edited. My favourite photo editor is VSCO cam or afterlight.

Step 2: Use Microsoft Word and and paste your photos. Now it depends  how big or small you want your polaroids to be. I decided to use this template below. I found this gave me enough proportion of white card to photo, and looked like a polaroid!

Step 3: Using the template or your own sizings, print off your photos. Now, once printed, use a craft knife to carefully cut round the template, make sure you use a ruler and you might want to put an old book or some cardboard as the knife can cut your surface your working at. Place the ruler on the line of the template and cut carefully with the knife (please hold the paper carefully watching your fingers!).



Step 4: Sometimes you will find the knife doesn't cut all the way through so make sure you do possibly three cuts making sure the line is smooth and straight - this is vital for a professional looking polaroid.

Step 5: Now continue taking care and precision. You could also try other coloured glossy papers and even write using a marker underneath the photo, this is really personal touch.
