Step and Repeat Photo Backdrop with The Cricut
How to Make A DIY Photo Booth Backdrop
What I love most about this step and repeat backdrop is how simple the process is.
You don't need a photography studio to have a beautiful baby shower or bridal shower party photos.
You can add a few studio props, photo booth props or put this diy photography backdrop on a backdrop stand and leave it pretty much as is.
And the best part is there is zero turn around time because you are making it yourself!
Granted it will take you some time to apply the design you want, but within a short time, you will have a backdrop that is affordable and fit for your event. I use a sheet to make this diy backdrop so it makes it extremely affordable.
I can't even imagine the price tag on this if you were to buy this from a printing company.
Grab your Cricut Air 2 and create your custom design and print off a ton of them. Then lay them out and start ironing them on so they are evenly spaced out. I used my ruler for this and it worked really well.
I find that heat transfer vinyl is nice because it allows you to work pretty fast once you get the spacing figured out.
Tips For Elevating Your Party
A bit area is making sure you have the right lighting. If you want dim lighting, reach for twinkle lights or lamps with light bulbs. Make sure the ambiance of the room fits your party. Or if you want it to be well lit ensure you have enough lighting so your guest can enjoy.
Create a drink that is special for your party. Whether it is an evening cocktail or a mocktail (no alcohol) give your guest something fun to sip on. I like to take a really tasty drink and then come up with a name that fits the event. This let's guest feel like they are enjoying a drink made specifically for your party.
Make sure you try to have fun at your party. Plan ahead and get things lined up so you aren't spending your whole party running around getting things done. Invite special guests, have games, or even music playing to keep the beat light and relaxed. Having a photo booth with one of these photo booth backdrops is always a winner.
Create a well-rounded theme for your party. From the foods, you serve to drinks and decorations. When you have a theme it is all smooth and flows nicely.
If you can afford it consider handing out a party favor or two. Whether it is a candy bar you let your guests scoop up some goodies they want, a wine glass, or even shirts, let them leave with something in their hands.
