Using inexpensive materials you can make a photo booth for a Barbie party in relatively little time. Here’s how:

Photo Booth Materials


Making Photo Booth

  • Stand up box without taping it to get a feel of the height you will need for your opening.
  • Lay box flat and using a straight edge and a pencil draw the area you will be cutting
  • Use an exactor knife to cut out the photo booth. Try to do a curved diagonal line along top. (You will need a piece of cardboard between the layers of the box to not cut through the back).
  • Print out Barbie & Mattel logos, cut and glue separately on white foam board. Cut foam board to along same pattern as logos. Logos can be downloaded or purchased on Etsy. Logos will require foam board mounting.  Barbie Logo    Mattel Logo <- Download Now!  
  • Paint box inside and out. (Not at the same time as it will make the box to weak)
  • Glue logos onto box.
  • Cut light pink foam board to fit bottom of booth. Yell out, “LOOK WHAT I CREATED!” when done! 

Bring a printer to the party and print out photos of the guests in the booth. Print out photos and mount on cardstock that thanks the guest for attending the party. Makes a great inclusion in the goodie bag! A Barbie party is certainly pretty in pink, and the inclusion of this relatively easy to make photo booth will provide a perfect photo opp for the birthday girl and her friends!

        The Amazon link used is for a 36″ height box, and it comes out to be like $19 after shipping. UHaul is the best way to go with their grand wardrobe box at 24x21x48 for $11.95, or a slightly smaller one for $9.95, I guess depending on your child’s height, since our 5 year old is 44″. Thanks for the post and inspiration!

    I have searched high and low for a “Barbie” pink paint, and I’m having no luck. Nothing I find is close to the pink you used. Would you mind telling me what the color you used is called? And possibly the brand?
