Here at LMP, we're always looking for a good spot to take a quick picture. Whether some new confetti arrived or we just bought the cutest cupcake, we absolutely love to document our best party moments. Jazz up a wall of your own with this easy DIY backdrop for your next party, and we promise it will end up all over Instagram.

You'll only need a few supplies: -cute paper (we love a little glitter!) -string or cord (coordinate the color to your paper) -tape

Step 1: Cut your paper into strips, about 2" wide.

Step 3: Cut the string into 10 pieces that span the height of a door frame. Find a plain wall close to a window (for the best natural light!) and tape each string evenly across the width.

Step 4: Tape the triangles to the string, spaced out enough so that no piece is right next to each other on neighboring strings. Also make a decision about your color placement. We liked our colors to be well dispersed.

Step 5: Keep taping those triangles up until they run out! Fill each string with about 8-10 triangles to leave a nice amount of negative space.

That's it! To see it in use on the regular, you can follow Seri on Snapchat; she loves to use the selfie backdrop! Best part is, it will last as long as that tape can stick. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
