Bridal Shower- Photo Booth/ Picture Frame

Hey eveyone
I am back with another Bridal shower product. I have been working on decorations for a Bridal shower and try to upload few of the things I have done. So here is a new one, its a Photo booth where you just hold this frame in your hands and take pictures. Isn't it cool?
This frame is 2 feet by 1.9 feet in size so approximately 24" x 21" in size. It was very overwhelming at the beginning when I started to make it, but once I was sure about the size and what I wanted to do, it was not so much difficult.

Supplies:

  • Chipboard ( Full size or as big as you can get)/ Sunboard/ mountboards/cardboards
  • Pink Handmade Paper ( Itsybitsy)
  • Pink and chevron Pink washi tapes. ( Crafters Corner)
  • Pearls ( self adhesive or flat back)
  • Velvet leaves ( 1"in size)
  • Mulberry roses ( 1"in size)( Itsybitsy)
  • Curling ribbons  in shaes of pinks and whites (Itsybitsy)
  • Satin ribbon ( Itsybitsy)
    Metallic paper (Itsybitsy)
  • Glitter confetti (Itsybitsy)
  • White dulplex papers/ crepe papers/ tissue papers
  • White wire pollens
  • White, offwhite and pale yellow thread pollens
  • Think floral wire
  • Walnut Stain distress ink pad and blending tool
  • Silicon glue/ hot glue gun (Itsybitsy)
  • White adhesive
  • Scissors
There are a lot of things that have brought this frame come to life. I have used chipboard 1200 gsm for the frame. To make it very sturdy, I have doubled it. Then, I went ahead and wrapped it up using pink handmade paper. I added some washi tapes using adhesive so that they do not peel off at all. This gave me the layout for the photo booth. For further embellishing, I added some velvet leaves and mulberry roses to the corners using some silicon glue. Silicon glue really did hold all the things in place.
Using a leaf template, I cut 4 leaves from the gold metallic paper and then distressed it using Walnut stain distress ink. I added some rose gold glitter confetti on the leaves using some white adhesive. I simply outlined the leaves with white adhesive and then poured the glitter on it. Let it sit for few mins and then shake it off.
I made few white flowers using white and pale cream Duplex paper. I have used duplex paper because it has different colors on its faces. You can also used tissue paper, crepe paper. I created the center for the flowers using a bunch of wire pollens and a bunch of white, off white and pale yellow wire pollens, I have done 2 roses and 2 peonies using two different techniques. Once the flowers were done, I added some glitter on the flowers using the same technique used for leaves. I did not add chunks of glitter, just some here and there. I shall do a tutorial for making these flowers in my upcoming post and so I have not including the tutorial here.
I arranged the gold leaves and big white flowers on the frame and adhered them using silicon glue. To fill the remaining places, I added some curling ribbons and satin ribbons. Finished the frame with some self adhesive pearls.
I am putting this project up at Allsorts challenge blog.
That completes the frame/ photo booth. I hope you all liked it and thank you for reading this post.
