Let's Make It!
Step 1: Define the Photo Booth Space
What type of camera will you be using? Where will the photographer be standing? Set up the camera and determine the area of the Photo Booth. Use tape to “draw” the booth on the wall. Remember to choose a location that has good lighting.
Step 2: Prepare the Flowers
Using wire cutters, carefully cut the large stems into smaller stems with at least one flower on each stem. I got 2-3 cut pieces from each large stem.
Be sure to leave enough of a stem so that you have room for tape.
Since I want to use the photo booth for more than a couple of hours, I used artiﬁcial flowers instead of fresh. Wilted flowers make for a sad photo booth! Also, some flowers have dye in them that can rub off on the wall.
Step 3: Tape the Flowers on the Wall
Step 4: Test Your Set-Up
Remove the tape that is marking your photo booth.
To help your guests, you may want to use tape on the floor to mark a box that they should stand in so that they don’t end up outside of the photo frame.
Once your event is over, the backdrop is easily removed from the wall, and if you used BAM! Tape™, you will have no sticky residue to clean up.
