    Thanks Veronica. The game boxes are made from, just that, boxes. Large cardboard boxes, covered with striped table cloth, from a roll. Inside each is lined with wrapping paper then decorated, based on it's theme. In total, the games run 12 feet long. The signage was all created on my Cricut.

    Lisa C wrote:

    No, they're plastic "cans". I got them at Oriental Tranding and made my own Potato Head covers for them.

    The claw was a large foam poster board. I cut two "M"ish shapes from it then put a slit in the top/bottom of each and slid them together. The lettering on the wall was cut on my Cricut.

    Where did you get the carnival barker parts for Mr. Potato Head?

  • Lisa C

    Lisa C wrote:

    @Stacey R, I made the accessories by hand. The hat is scrapbook paper and ribbon. The sleeves are red and white striped fabric slid right over regular Mr. Potato Head arms. The microphone was a little rubber ball... but I don't remember what I stuck it to. =)

    I love this photo booth what is on the side?

  • Lisa C

    Lisa C wrote:

    I'm not sure what you're asking about. The side where the camera is has just a hole. The front just has some photo prop ideas. The inside is lined with light blue gift wrap and spotted with paper clouds. Hope that covered your question.

    I LOVE this photo booth! I'm wondering how you rigged your camera? I'm having a party next month and was planning on doing a photo booth, but I'm having issues with how to set my camera to be right for a photo booth. How were you able to do that?

    My question is how do you rig up the camera to take the pictures in the photo booth? I understand how you do the booth just wondering about how the kids would take the pictures

  • Lisa C

    Lisa C wrote:

    We had an adult run the camera. It was set up on a tri-pod and if someone wanted a photo taken, someone else would just take the photos for them.

    Lisa - This party is too cute! We have a carnival VBS theme this year and I was wondering how you made the games? What type of boxes and how long did the games take you to make?

  • Lisa C

    Lisa C wrote:

    Sorry, Yvette. I've never seen Yo Gabba Gabba.

    You could absolutely use reguarly soda cans, if you'd like!

    Lisa C wrote:

    Thanks @Beth! I used large appliance boxes that I got from my local Best Buy. Attaching, cutting, covering them took longer than setting up the actual games, but I did it all gradually over the matter of a month, so I couldn't give you an exact amount of time.

    how did you make these. I am throwing a carnival themed party for my daughter in july and would love some tips on how you created the game frames. They look amazing!

    if I may ask...what did you use under the table clothes, for the horizontal 'shelves'? I love having different heights on tables, but finding props that are the lenght of a 6-ft table is challenging. :)

    I used cardboard boxes. I got multiple boxes, of the same size, taped them together and then wrapped them in white paper.

    The photo booth is a large cardboard box (I think it may have been a refridgerator box) covered with striped table cloth. The inside it covered with light blue wrapping paper.
