I've always loved shoe boxes with polaroids on but the film costs soooooooo much these days! Luckily, I've come up with a cheap alternative which looks just as good!
First of all, you need to take nice photos of your shoes against a white background.
The photo will end up looking something like this, so opening it in Photoshop or any image editing program and perform some magic on it....
First, crank up the levels to make the image really white.
Then select all the areas that aren't white and fill them with white.
For the next step, you need an image of a polaroid. You can either scan one you already have or use my PDF - download the attachment up top!
Create a new layer and paste your polaroid image in to it.
Set the polaroid layer to "Multiply" in the settings and your shoes should appear through the little window.
Now you need to print these out. The easiest way is to go to a photo printing machine. If you use my template, you can do two polaroids per photo.
Cut these out neatly with a pair of scissors.
To make the polaroids look even more realistic, gently fold them over to create a slight crease.
This gives them a nice curve.
Place some double sided sticky tape on the back of your photos.
Stick to the front of your shoe box and you'll never forget what's in each box!
