For my son’s Graduation celebratory Party, I wanted to make a photo booth so everybody could partake in photos and have fun. I asked my son to draw a cartoon who expressed excitement, but I did not tell him that it will be used for a Photo Booth in his own party. I just told him that I needed the cartoon with his arms up, while holding two sticks. On those sticks I will glue the frame where the guests would be taking the photos. My son designed the carton which I then proceeded to make it out of styrofoam. The frame is done with the dollar store cardboard and decorated with the dollar store streamers.
The graduation hat cutout is done with card-stock and tape on the back to hold the glitter.
The materials that I used for this project were:
- KNK Force cutter machine
- Red Cap Blade
- Glue Gun
- Acrylic Paint
Settings for KNK Force:
The settings used for the Red Blade:
- Passes = 1
- CD = 87
- CS = Default-40
- US = Default-40
- PS = Default-20
- LS = Default – 20
- Blade Offset – Red Blade
- I cut the center of the cardboard to make the frame.
- Once I had the cut out, I measured the hole in order to know the size that I had to cut the letters, in order to allow the words to be shown when nobody is taking pictures. In this case I wanted to show his name, “Bryan” and the year, “2016.” Those letters where then taped to the curtain placed on the back of the cartoon that is holding the frame.
- After that, I wanted to measure how big the graduation hat had to be, then I cut it out of card-stock with my AWESOME KNK Force.
- When I cut the graduation hat, I then put tape on the back of the hat to be able to add glitter.
- Once the hat was finished, I then started to wrap the cardboard frame with streamers to make it looks nice.
- Then, I glued the graduation hat to the frame.
- Once the frame was completely done and decorated, I then started painting the cartoon that my son had designed for me.
- Finally, I glued the frame to the cartoon and tied it to the fence to keep it in place.
