A photo booth can be a really fun way to provide a platform for guests to capture memories at parties or events. This past New Years Eve I decided to construct one at a friend’s masquerade party using some curtains, some paper and a few of our remaining holiday decorations.
I strung up our Meri Meri Pop diamond boxes and Meri Meri Pinwheels ($22.95) using our Knot and Bow Cotton twine ($9.95) to create some 3-dimensional details in the foreground and used the gold string that came with the diamond boxes with long strips of some of our metallic papers to create a garland for the backdrop. The strips were cut from our Metal Momi and Metal Midare papers which are very sturdy and luminous and looked great with their varying textures.
Guests of the party had a lot of fun using the photo booth to take portraits as everyone awaited midnight. Most of the masks we had were purchased from Malabar, however friends Tom and Ainslie impressed everyone with their custom deer and fox paper masks from Wintercroft. Wintercroft offers really interesting geometric pattern mask templates that are easily downloaded off of their website, printed, and constructed out of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Can you imagine how great some of these masks would look made from our Chiyogami paper?
