PARTY: Wanted Poster Photo Booth {Tangled Birthday Party}

--Click HERE to see all Tangled-related posts and DIY's--

I thought it would be a lot of fun for both the kids and parents to have a photo booth at Haley's Tangled party.  The kids are finally at the age where they like to dress up and pretend, plus I thought it'd be a fun keepsake for the parents to take home with them.

Since Flynn Rider's wanted posters show up several times in Tangled, I immediately pictured the kids posing behind a wanted poster. But how to make one the size I wanted without making it look corny? Mandy of Sugar Bee Crafts posted a great tutorial last year on how to make a giant picture by ordering an engineer print from your local office store, so that's exactly what I did.

I found the Flynn Rider poster HERE and used Photoshop to change it to black and white and remove the "wanted dead or alive part." I wasn't sure how parents would feel about that part ;)

From there, I went to my local FedEx Kinkos and had them print the smallest engineer print they had (I believe it was an 18x24) in black and white for only $0.75/foot. They do print engineer prints in color as well, but the cost is $8/ft. and I wasn't feeling like spending that much for something I was about to cut up. I used spray adhesive to mount it to foam board (found at Walmart) and then I used my X-Acto knife to trim the edges and cut out the middle.  Clear line and packing tape was all I needed to hang the poster from the ceiling so the kids could stand behind it for pictures.  

As you can see, Haley loved it:

For the props, the only dress up stuff that I had on hand is princess gear - and  I knew the boys would hate that - so I opted for paper props instead. I found the awesome printables on Oh Happy Day! HERE and HERE. Jordan saved my butt, I was about to try to design my own and they wouldn't have looked near as good as hers! I simply glued them to wooden skewers and let the kids model away.

We simply hung the sign from the ceiling with clear wire and packing tape. As you can see, the kids loved it!

  7. EEEEP!!! How cute! I've seen this at weddings but never kids b-day parties. Looks like they are having a blast.

  8. This is awesome! My boys wouldn't be into the Tangled theme but I bet they'd have a blast being bad guys & goof balls for pictures in a wanted poster! I'm pinning this so I don't forget to do it! Thanks for sharing!
