Making a Photo Booth Frame – Step by Step

How to Make a Photo Booth Frame for Your Party

This tutorial will explain how to make DIY photo booth frames step-by-step. You will need to check out the list of items you will need before you start the process.

There are a few things you need to prepare

Step #1

Using the cardboard that you want to make the photo booth frame from, draw the size of it. You might be making the frame for 1-2 people, so keep the aspect ratio 36 x 24 inches if you are making it for two or more people. 

In the same way, a frame that accommodates 3-4 people should measure at least 48 x 36 inches when it comes to size.

It is very important that the lines you draw in the frame are clear to facilitate effortless cutting.

Step #2

Once you have sketched the picture frame for your party onto the cardboard, using a blade or cutter, draw the body of the frame. 

To make sure that you are cutting straight, you need to use a ruler alongside the cutter when using it. If you feel that using this blade is unsafe, you can use some scissors instead.

When you have finished cutting the frame, go over all the edges with sandpaper to smooth them out. Do not rub the sandpaper harder than necessary, as this might cause unevenness in your lines.

Step #3

You can paste the paper on the front side of the frame if you want to customize it or add some quotations. Otherwise, skip this part.

You will now need to cut a foam sheet to the same size as your frame so that it will fit in the photo prop. Please do not paste more than one layer of foam sheet. There is no need for more than one layer of foam sheet. 

It is prudent to mount the foam sheet with the cardboard using a glue gun rather than a stapler. Once it has been mounted, let it sit for five to seven minutes before continuing.

Step #4

You should now take another piece of cardboard for extra strength. The second layer of cardboard should be attached to the backside of the frame. Glue should be used to attach the cardboard.

Please remember that glue guns are not recommended for use by children. Please make sure that you use the glue gun under the supervision of an adult if you are underage. The glue gun could burn your hands if you use it on your own.

Step #5

It’s time to take some cheesy pictures with your photo booth frame. With the help of a silver wire, you can mount some artificial flowers to decorate the frame. If you decide to use a binding wire, be sure that an adult supervises you while you work.

Having Trouble Making a Photo Frame for Social Media? Here’s how.

How to Make a Photo Booth Frame for Your Party

In the past few years, social media photo frames have become quite popular. However, you don’t have to hire a professional artist to make one for you. You can do it yourself by following the following steps;

Step #1

The social media frame can be downloaded online before you cut or rub the cardboard. Social posts on Instagram are widely used for this purpose because they appear to be extremely attractive.

You should print the post at a size that is wide enough for the fonts to be visible. In addition to the aforementioned options, you also have the option of personalizing the print with your name, location, and username.

Step #2

It is important to put the picture aside and cut out the frame after downloading it. The process for making the photo prop frame is essentially the same as mentioned previously.

In this case, what most people do is paste the picture first before cutting the frame, which turns out to be a mistake. If you paste the picture before cutting the frame, there is nothing unusual about it.

As a result, if you do not have the same aspect ratio on all sides of your picture, or if you must trim the frame more, you will get an unattractive picture.

Trimming the body of the image will also cut any element or text that is contained within the image, thus ruining it.

Step #3

It is now time to cover the backside of the frame with foam sheets and cardboard. Alternatively, if you wish you could paste some flowers on the backside. If you want to take a sassy picture with the frame, now is the time to call your friends up.
