  • What you'll need:

    Cardboard or Poster Board
    Exacto Knife or Scissors
    Sunlight

  • All you need to do is pick your text you would like and cut it off your cardboard or poster board. I cut mine exactly the way you would read it, left to right.

  • Make sure when you are doing letters like “a,e,d,b,o,p, & R” that you keep a piece of your board connected so that your letter stays the shape it is supposed to be. You can see this above in my E & O.

    Now the fun part. Drag your kids out on a beautiful sunny morning and start snapping some photos. You will have to play with it until you get the right angle. I took my pictures with the sun facing their backs and me facing them.

    You will need to have the kids hold the signs upside down for them to be read the correct way. You can see this in the image below.

  • After a few different photos. I got some I was content with. I had mine printed in black & white as a 16×20 at Walgreens for $11! Doesn’t get much better than that for last minute and budget friendly gift.
