Sophia’s Vintage Party Photo Booth

As soon as I decided on Sophia’s party theme as vintage and shabby chic I knew I wanted to have a photo booth too.  I wanted to make the photo booth fun and an activity for the kids at the party.  I set to work making the props.

The first step was to make the thought bubbles.  It was actually really easy to do.  First, I found chalk board contact paper on Amazon.com.  Then I set out to my local craft store and got some black foam board.  I used black foam board so that it matched the chalk board contact paper.  The contact paper is self-adhesive so all I had to do was slowly take the backing off while smoothing it onto the foam board with a ruler.  I let the contact paper adhere overnight and then used a piece of chalk to outline my bubbles.  Once I had them the way I liked I just cut them out with my Martha craft knife.

I was super lucky and found funny mustaches at Michaels in the dollar bins.  I just glued them to some black felt and cut them out.  Once they dried I super glued a wooden dowel to them.  I also printed up a red paper I made in Photoshop and cut out some funny lips and glued them to wooden dowels.

My mom had a vintage chenille peacock bedspread that was perfect for the backdrop.  The colors looked beautiful with the afternoon sun in the background.  The kids had a great time deciding on what they wanted their bubbles to say.  Here is the finished product.
