a picture I found on pinterest - which happens to come from etsy. I figure it is OK to copy the idea since it is for personal use and not to sell, but the link goes to the etsy shop.
Pinterest. I just drew them freehand onto some file folders (raided from the school's supply cupboard) and wrote the letters on with black permanent marker. I may add some glitter to the outline if time permits - but for now, I'm calling these done.
All of these above will only work if two people are in the frame together, each holding one side and one prop, so for individual shots, I bought a couple of hands free props:
I still have to come up with some sort of backdrop, but that will have to wait until I see the actual room they are using - the school rented a hall, and I haven't had a chance to go check it out yet. The tablecloth will come from the school...one of the cloth ones I made a few years ago in school colours.
Oh, I almost forgot...the tally: the frame was free, as were all of the props on a stick. Total cost for the photo booth: between $6.00 and $10.00 because the glasses, boas and masks came from the dollar store but some were over a dollar.
From a couple of the comments on part 1 of this series it occurs to me that I should clarify...the decorations I am making are not for an at home party...they are for the school's actual graduation ceremony. I'm just helping out.
I'm currently working on the centerpieces, so part 3 should follow next week...
