Photo booths have been all the rage for a while now. It is so fun to see all the creative booths that everyone has come up with! I've seen them at weddings, birthday parties, Halloween parties, school dances, etc. They just add some fun to the party, no matter what's going on. There's even this adorable one that was made for a little girl's 5th Birthday party:
The Original Pin
Isn't that fun? I love it. Bowen found this on Pinterest and decided to put one together for a carnival where she lives. She "tried to use a refrigerator box with pink wrapping paper." That seems like it would work...but she had some troubles.
"The kids still enjoyed it but compared to what I was going for....It was a total fail. Also it was pretty short so lots of the kids had to duck to get in it."
I'd say E for effort! I know it's not what Bowen dreamed of when she set to work on it, but if the kids enjoyed it, then I call it a win.
Obviously a big key to this is finding a box big enough (not even sure what would come in a box that big), or taping (and taping and taping and taping) a few boxes together to get the size/height that you're going for. As for the paper job in the original pin...that lady is a wrapping paper genius. I can never get it that smooth, which is maybe why I started wrapping things as goofy as I could. Oh well. One thing that could help with a "wrapping" project this big is to use some spray on adhesive. That would help the paper stick to the box so you don't have to cover the thing in clear tape and it might help it to last a little longer too. There's always pink spray paint...but spray paint and I aren't really on speaking terms right now. We just don't get along. Besides, paper would cover up any creases or seams in the cardboard. I'd stick with the paper route.
