Princess Cut-Outs/Stand-Ups

I am in the process of making several of these princess stand-ups for my dd's 4th birthday party. They are 4x2 mdf particle board. I use acrylics with the exception of the background, that is plain 'ole house paint.







The first Rapunzel was the very first one I did, before I realized I wanted them to be more "life-size".



I need to do second coats on the larger areas, but overall I am pretty happy with the way they are turning out! I have four more princesses to go, plus a few princes.

Also, the backgrounds are all the same color, my photography skills are very lacking!

I am making them as decorations for my dd's upcoming birthday party. I used a printed picture, an overhead, and a lot of erasing. I wish I could just freehand, but I can't. So, I am resourceful! Coloring pages are a great canvas, then I just fill in the missing bits. The real leg work comes from painting them!

My family drove me nuts, and then I got stuck in traffic
Washed my hair and wham, several ideas hit me all at once!

I have friends who have already asked to use them as well. They are so large and took so long, I would hate to only use them once!

I am 23 days away from trip and a month and half removed from my dd's birthday party. Here are a few pics of the princess boards in action!





They were a huge hit! We even had kids coming over from the nearby soccer games to check them out.
