A new little ride in my little office anyone? Today, some details of some of my shelves where I store my books DIY, sewing, knitting and crochet hooks, a bit of DIY material, my cameras, but especially my Artoyz collection.

I started my collection in 2010 during a mission for a client whose offices were at 2 steps from the Artoyz Shop in the rue de l’arbre sec. As I love cute things, I started to buy every month a small figurine. I even told myself: “Go for 5€ / month for a small figurine, no more.” And over time, I was so pleased that I bough larger figures as this Labbit with removable accessories.

And then there are also Artoyz that were offered to me as Mister Jack and this Qee Loves White that I called Cocokipik!

For information, in addition to the decor, I had planned: – A camera mounted on tripod – A remote control to trigger the photos. It is not mandatory, but so much more convenient – A photo light on tripod that a friend brought – Accessories such as costume hats, glasses, wigs, etc.. – A slate After the party with friends where we took over 400 shots before the photobooth, my man and I made a new session just the 2 of us in daylight. Unfortunately, I no longer had the bright spot so I increased the ISO and pictures are full of “noise” but we still have great fun …

Birthday party’s diy How to make backdrop for a photobooth?

hellokim_happy30tj_02

To make the backdrop for the photobooth of my 30th birthday, I was inspired by photos and tutorials of 2 different blogs but with the same principle: the accumulation of round colored papers. The first stage for photobooth proposed to pin small gold rounds and the second was a bit more colorful with round paper in a larger diameter and superimposed to make mermaid scales. The first one really appealed to me but I didn’t find any gold paper … I probably seek in the wrong way but impossible to find a roll at an affordable price. I finally bought rounds for  pastry that I ordered online. Being a bit stuck on the tutorial of ohhappyday.com, I focused on small diameter round  but then, 200 rounds of 8 cm don’t cover a large area …! So I decided to complement with large round papers.

Shopping list : 
– Paper, colored or not, patterned or not  
– A cutter to cut quickly. Scissors can be used but it will last longer
– Support for cutting if you use a cutter
– A round bowl used as template as this one from Brakig collection of IKEA
– Patafix to install the decor

For cutting round shapes I folded the paper in two sheets then I laid it flat before putting the bowl above. Holding the bowl firmly in place, I drew the outline of the bowl with the cutter. And that’s it! According to the surface to be covered, cut a necessary number of rounds but take into account the fact that row will be superimposed half.

For stick the rounds on the wall, I used the Patafix to not damage it. I just followed the instructions in the Poppytalk blog. Well, all is not as well made as the example but I will improve with time! As I have a beautiful blue wall, I did not completely covered it but I left the lower part discovery.

nd here is the result! A little photo as teaser and the rest will come very soon.
