Little Blue Truck

Are you familiar with this children's book?


I wasn't but a friend in my neighborhood was having a themed birthday party for her son and asked me to create a photo booth for the party.

I welcomed the challenge and first sketched out the truck on paper:


Foam board was the best option for the photo booth:


 I traced it onto foam board:


I used an x-acto to cut it out:


And then I painted...


…and painted...


And here is the birthday boy in his photo booth!

  8. Hi Patti.. I love the little blue truck photo booth. My son's birthday is on the 18th and this is his favorite book. I was wondering if you did custom orders or would be willing to take an order? I am hoping you say yes :)

  12. This is so cute! I tried making it with the foam board but as my paint is drying my foam board is curling. Did you see this? Any recommendations to help?
