  • Several different pictures of your baby

  • Lightweight cardboard (or bristol board)

  • Glue stick

  • Superglue

  • Corrugated cardboard

  • Thumbtacks


  1. Print the images onto glossy photo paper.

  2. Work in small batches: Cut out a grouping of faces and use the glue stick to adhere them to a piece of lightweight cardboard for firmness. Cut around the faces with scissors or a utility knife.

  3. Push tacks into the corrugated cardboard to hold them steady while you attach the photos. Put a drop of superglue on the head of the tack, and press cutout firmly in place. (If you're giving the tacks as gifts, present them on the cardboard.)
