I trust you are all gearing up for the festive season. It is such a busy time but I got really excited making these props because it took me back to my childhood, when I used to make chrismas paper chains and all sorts of childish decor. I know you will enjoy making and using these props this holiday season.
You will need the following cardstock from the papermill direct website.
- Red Plain Card 160gsm
- Forest Green Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 300gsm
- Black Bowston Plain Card 290gsm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 120ml
You will also need:
- skewers or thin dowel
- 6mm ribbons (optional)
- craft gemstones (optional)
- glitter (optional)
- glue gun
- glue stick
- white pompoms (optional)
- craft knife
Finally, you will need the photo booth prop templates from the design bundle website. This you will have to purchase, especially if you have a cutting machine or you can actually draw your own prop templates and cut them out by hand. But if you want to save yourself time then you will need to get the SVG file.
- Once your props have all been cut out on your chosen colour card either on the machine or by hand,(I double backed them using the 290gsm black Bowston card so that each prop is very sturdy) you can begin to embelish them as you like e.g. adding glitter, gemstones and pompoms to any of the props.
- Use your kitchen knife or a craft knife to cut off the sharp ends of the skewers then attach each skewer to your props using your glue gun to secure them. For some of the props you will have to attach the skewers at an angle e.g. the glasses and hats so that they don't get in the way when using them.
- Another thing I did was to neatly cover the the back of the props where the skewers are attached so that the skewers do not show and it will also act as extra support.
And there you have it. Simple, festive props to add extra enjoyment to the Christmas celebrations. As always please share your work with me by tagging me on my social media channels. Just follow the links below.
