Has anyone created photo booth objects with this cartridge? I bought it because I wanted to create my own things for my wedding photo booth.. I have been able to make them but the sizing this isn't right. Can anyone help?

Big enough to fit your face. I wasn't sure if anyone has done this before and had all the sizing or if I'm going to have to play and figure it out which is find just thought I would ask around. Have you ever seen or heard of a photo booth? Normally done at parties or wedding receptions.

Yes, I love photo booths! We had one at the Cricut Stampede last year and it was so much fun!

I would just measure your own face and use that as a basic guide. Place an oval on the mat and then size the other ones to it. Remove the oval before cutting.

I;m trying to cut the funny glasses and nose. I cut the glasses out first and they are fine but I'm trying to get the nose to fit on top and it's not coming out right. I cut it at the same size and it still doesnt fit on top.

Make sure you don't have Real Size showing on the toolbar at the top of the CCR screen. If you see Real click it to change it to Relative then recreate your project.

This is an example:

I can't believe I'm just not understand this!
I tried it again, I have attached the image of my screen when I do it. I dont
get how you get the nose to be the size to fit the glasses..... Do I drag it over
and stretch it to fit? The glasses are 7" what size should the nose be?

miss.jennifer attached the following image(s):

Did you resize the glasses manually? When you say they are 7" do you mean that's the measurement you have set as the Dial size in the Options menu, Craft Room tab?

If you stretched the glasses manually then you need to do the same with the nose (and every other part of the face.)

Using your picture as a guide, I worked out that you should have your Dial size set at 10.5". Place all your layers on the mat at that size.

The reason you need to set them at 10.5 is because the images on that cart are all based on the size of the face layer. Everything else is cut in proportion to that layer.

So basically to get a finished product that's the size of the one on your preview:

1. Make sure Relative size is selected
2. Set the Dial size to 10.5"
3. Place all the different layers you are using on the mat at that size and they'll all fit each other.

(The other option you have is to place all the layers on the mat at whatever size you currently have set as the Dial Size, then select them all (Ctrl A) and manually resize them all at the same time using the bottom right handle. Use your glasses as a guide as to when to stop. If you need to resize again just make sure you select everything again.)

Hope that helps.

My daughter had a photo booth at her wedding and the guests had so much fun with it! Everyone kept going back for more, grabbing other people to go in it with them, using other props, etc. She just bought cheap dollar store things and they worked out great. Your guests, I'm sure, will also have a blast with the photo booth!!
