What a perfect way to bring some sunlight and sparkle into the new year! I saw this posted over at Funny Days With Mommy & Maddie this morning, and I immediately knew that this would be a huge hit with the boys (thanks Amanda!).
I started by printing "2011" onto a piece of colored cardstock and cutting out the shapes with my Xacto knife. Be sure to save the center of the 0 for reassembly later. If you don't want to waste time choosing a font and sizing it, I made a template that you can download and print HERE.
I gave each boy a piece of Contac paper, and they meticulously covered it with sparkly sequins and confetti.
top it off with a sprinkling of glitter...
...or, if you're like this guy, a rather generous pile of glitter!
You can attach the sparkled Contac paper directly to your cutout cardstock, but since we ended up with soooo much glitter I opted to sandwich the sparkles between two sheets of Contac paper. I then attached it to the back of the cardstock with double stick tape and used the tape to reattch the center of the zero.
