For this project you will need:
- Styrofoam poster board (one for single digits and two for double)
- A pen
- Scissors or a box cutter (do not use the box cutter on your floor... we put the board on the floor in the garage)
- double sided tape
- an array of pictures from the respective year (I went to the Walgreens app that allows you to print photos from your phone, instagram, facebook, etc... in a 3x3 photo. Perfect for collages)
- fun tak (blue sticky goo that you can hang things with that doesn't destroy walls.
Draw your number on the board. I went as large as possible and did free hand... but you can certainly use a ruler or something if need be. Cut out your newly drawn number and set it aside. Gather the rest of your supplies.
Now, start collage-ing with your double stick tape. I started to go chronologically, but that got old in a hurry... so I just started putting pictures wherever they fit.
Finally using bits of the fun-tak, you can hang your work of art. I am in LOVE with the outcome and intend on doing this for every birthday for all of my children.
