I guess you could say we’re crazy in love with today’s DIY project – a green + white ombre photo backdrop made entirely of paper! We partnered with the Paper & Packaging – How Life Unfolds ™ campaign to showcase one of the many unique ways you can incorporate paper into your wedding day with this geometric design! It can be used as a ceremony, photo booth or sweetheart table backdrop, just to name a few ideas. You can even use it in the events leading up to your wedding – we’re thinking it could be the perfect eye-popping addition behind a sweets table at a bridal shower!

Not only is this project easy, it’s completely customizable. You have free creative reign with size, color and overall shape. Needless to say, the possibilities are endless. Thank you to our newest DIY stylist and contributor, Colorado-based ENLY Event Design, for capturing the step-by-step images and end result!
