DIY Party Photo Cutouts

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

A popular and fun way to take photos, particularly at parties and with groups are to use photo cutouts.  You can find them at several stores or online and purchase them.  I was having some fun with  my little girl and we decided to make our own with the help of PicMonkey, which is a photo-editing program if you are not familiar with it.  There are multiple party images you can find there.  I did not do much editing with these except change the color and maybe add some sparkles on some of the masks.  There's also a pretty flower headband I put together because I thought it would look so cute on my daughter.

DIY Photo Cutouts

These paper cutouts are super simple, easy and fun to make!  I'm sharing them here for this month's #TBCCrafters Craft Hop. These are great to use especially if you enjoy making your own party props or DIY crafts.  If you do not have PicMonkey (it's free to use but you can pay the annual fee to access all the features), I included several of them below that you can click on and print.

How to Make the Flower Headband:

After you print the image onto a heavy cardstock paper, cut it out and use a hole puncher to make one hole at the end of each side.  Choose a ribbon and loop it through the back side and tie around the head.  You can also use an elastic band.

My daughter had a lot of fun taking some pictures with these cutouts, as you can see.  These would fit well with a masquerade party, New Years party, birthday party and the flower headband and bow ties may even work for a bridal shower.

Do you have a party coming up that you could use with these photo cutouts?
