Photo booths are a must have at a party with a lot of guests. Not only is it time that they’re spending with you, it’s time that you don’t have to spend thinking of what to occupy them with. Photo booth props are easily made with your Cricut Maker or your Cricut Explore.
- Cardstock (I used green, gold, white, black, pink and brown)
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore
- Cricut Design Space File
- Skewer Sticks
Remember that you don’t have to cut everyone of these shapes if you don’t want. All you have to do is click on the eyeball that is next to the shape and it’ll disapear, or just delete it. I don’t want you paying for a shape that you’ll never use. Or buy the Cricut Access program and get over 30,000 shapes available to you.I’ve used the subscription services when I had my Silhouette and now that I use Cricut. I’ve gotten a better deal out of Cricut. I’ve been able to find a lot of shapes that I’ve been able to manipulate and give me the look that I want. It’s a great addition and only $10 a month for something that you’d get a lot of use out of.I used the standard grip mat and chose the intricate cut setting for Cricut cardstock. If I am using any cardstock thicker than the 80 lb. weight, I’ll usually just hit go again and it’ll give me 4 swipes of the blade. This will insure that you don’t have any tears when lifting your paper from the mat. For the glitter cardstock, do the intricate cut but have it pass through 4 times. When choosing intricate cut it’ll pass through twice for each press of the go button.Once all your shapes are cut, just assemble them according to the image. I always like to separate my image cuts into piles so that I don’t get any pieces missed. My favorite adhesive for cardstock is this one by Tombow. It dries quick and it’s also great for 3-D projects.I let all the New Years photo booth props dry overnight and then I adhere the skewer to the back. I just use hot glue for this part because it’s the best and most durable for photo booth props. Once all your sticks are adhered you’re ready to go.I like to have these in a jar just to the side of the booth. In the past I’ve used lots of different photo backdrops but my favorite thing to use is this sequin fabric. It pops and is perfect for ringing in the New Year.
