Photo booth background
Everybody is doing it - and I can see why! This is the funnest toy ever!
My sister-in-law's sister's wedding shower is on Sunday. I offered to make a backboard for a photo booth. What I had in mind, was something shiny, like this one from what Oh Happy Day!.
But, I didn't have any shiny...
I walked through the aisles at Deserres and came up with this background! Her colours are mustard yellow and grey...I didn't like the regular paper, so I decided to improvise
- 12 white bristol boards @99 cents each (they are 2/$1 at the dollar store, I think)
- one large piece of cardboard $6
- 1 tube acrylic paint $5.50, brushes, chrome spray paint (on hand)
- double sided tape, scissors, pencil, large level (for a straight line) and bowl (all on hand)
I sprayed the some boards silver, and messy-painted the others....traced circles on the back, cut them out, mounted them with double sided tape according to the grid I drew on the board.
It took me about four hours to do, and I stabbed myself under my thumb nail at least 5,784 times while trying to peel back the double sided tape. I hate you tape.
ps. the stupid strings are hanging out of my shirt...
