As mentioned in my previous post, my oldest daughter will soon be turning twelve. It should come as no surprise then, that I will soon be hosting a birthday party.
Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers (Amy at While Wearing Heels), we have decided to do a DIY photo booth for the occasion.
The first step in the process (for me) has been to make the photo booth props. This was a great excuse to bust out my new Silhouette.
I bought a few 99 cent templates from the Silhouette site and loaded them onto my computer.
Then I let the machine do its thing...
I was pretty psyched to find some wooden dowels in the garage. I think at one point I aspired to make a starburst mirror. (It never got past the "aspiration" stage ;)
A little hot glue and these bad boys were good to go...
I'm a huge fan of the monocle.
Especially when it's paired with a stylish top hat like the one pictured below.
The props in this next picture are fit for a king. (All that's missing is "a bowl and his fiddlers three.")
And this is just me being silly and hopping on the mustache bandwagon. I'm not sure if I get the fascination with this particular facial accessory but who am I to judge?
Stay tuned for more party details in the coming weeks!
