Unique Anniversary Gift : Supplies Needed

  • Large cardboard or foam board sheets. (You can easily find those at the Dollar Store or Walmart)
  • Utility Knife
  • 4×6 photos of choice, enough to cover your letters. This might take some guesswork. My numbers were about 2 1/2 feet tall and it took 60 photos to cover them. Get extras made to allow for horizontal and vertical laying out to cover the cardboard. One Hour Photo places like Walgreen’s are always running specials!
  • Glue Stick or Hot Glue Gunblank630x20

You can use a large piece of cardboard or foam board for this project.

Lay out of the photos over the numbers first before gluing. Make sure they cover all the cardboard. A mixture of vertical and horizontal photos to do that best. Then glue them on with a glue-stick making sure to use enough glue so they don’t fall off. A hot glue gun would also work as would normal glue.
