Photo booths and photo backdrops are very trendy and seem to be popping up everywhere from elegant weddings to children’s birthday parties. Supplies to create photo backdrops can be ordered on-line and found at party stores but you can find yourself spending a small fortune before you know it! Luckily as a paper crafter, you have the skills to create your own DIY photo backdrop with supplies you probably already have in your craft room like scrapbook paper, tissue paper and crafting tools like punches, scissors and your trusty hot glue gun.
I recently created a photo backdrop for my daughter’s Valentine’s Day party and it was a huge hit! In addition to the tutorials I am sharing below, I also want to share this tutorial for a backdrop frame . I spent under $10 and was able to create the frame in less than 30 minutes. It is lightweight, portable and a must if you will be traveling with your backdrop. When you are done it comes apart for easy storage and having a photo backdrop frame on hand has encouraged me to make an additional backdrop for some fun at home photo shoots.

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
