Christmas Photo Booth Props with Free Cut File and a GIVEAWAY!

Christmas Photo Booth Props with FREE cut file from #christmasparty #photoprops #silhouette


I saw this pin for a photo prop “I’m with Santa” speech bubble a few months ago and absolutely loved it!  It got me so excited to throw a Christmas party…and that was back in October!


When I saw Lauren’s Halloween Party Photo Booth Props over at The Thinking Closet, I knew I could pull off some Christmas Photo Booth Props with my Silhouette.  So I set to work making that “I’m with Santa” speech bubble and a few other fun props…

and then got a little carried away with some more…

…and even more!

It was really very easy – I just cut the shapes out of chipboard with my Silhouette, then did the same with colored card stock, and glued them together.

For the “Naughty” and “Nice” arrows, I used double-sided adhesive to cut out the lettering, then added glitter for a little glam!  (Click HERE for a tutorial on using double-sided adhesive and glitter)


I also used the double-sided adhesive and glitter on the lips and Rudolph nose.  (A note about using the double-sided adhesive – if you use a dry paintbrush to brush the surface after you’ve added the glitter, it will remove ALL the excess glitter – after I did that, even when I rubbed my fingers along the adhered glitter, not even one speck of glitter came off onto my hand!)


The final step was painting some dowel rods black and attaching them to the props with hot glue.  Make sure you test out the placement and angle of the dowel rod on the prop so it is comfortable to hold and doesn’t end up putting the dowel right in front of your face (i.e. glue mostly to the sides of the props, not right in the middle).

The most labor intensive part of this project was creating the cut files using various free clip art images from the web.  The cutting and assembly was relatively quick and straightforward!  It was super fun, too – I wanted to keep going and make some mistletoe, gift boxes, an elf hat, an ugly Christmas sweater…but I had to stop myself from going even farther overboard than I already did!


As my Christmas gift to you, dear readers, I am giving you these cut files for FREE!

  1. What a cute and unique way to capture Christmas memories using these photo props! I’ll be making these for sure. We go to my daughter’s house on Christmas morning to watch my grandson open his loot from Santa. It will be fun to take pictures of everyone else with these props! Thanks for the cut files!

      This is the first time I’ve had real success with chipboard, and I think it was because I used an old mat that wasn’t very sticky…the other times I’ve left behind chunks of chipboard on the mat, so I’ve been a little scared to try it again. But this was so easy! Definitely give it a try :-)

    Such a smile maker! I cut out a couple of Santas and Frosties, put them on wooden cooking skewers, and took them to lunch. Big hit. Took iPhone pictures. Couple across the restaurant asked if I’d take a pic of them in the Santas. Of course I did and emailed it to them that very minute. Then we took the props to a friend in rehab and made his day. I mean REALLY made his day! Thanks for a darling idea and design! Merry Christmas!!!
