Letter and Number Photo Collage

My friend asked me to make a photo collage that she found on Pinterest for her daughter's second birthday party.  Of course, I quickly obliged and went ahead for it.  It was quite an easy project.  The toughest part was picking the pictures to put in!  It's a lot of fun, and a great way to show party guests so many different milestones and different events of the birthday celebrant.
 Materials:
poster board
sharp scissors
photos (can be different sizes but I used wallet size photos)
box cutter (optional)
pen/pencil
tape or glue dots
 Draw your block number or letter on the poster board.
It doesn't have to be perfect because that can be fixed with moving around the pictures.
 Arrange the photos on the number/letter that you've cut out.
The curves can be tricky, but just stack them like a staircase pattern.  It will work out.

Completed letter "C".
Completed number "2".

A ribbon was attached on the back with packing tape.
Et Voila!

Thanks for showing the "how to" version of this. I saw the same example in a Martha Stewart magazine but hers didn't go into detail on an easy and inexpensive way to make it.
You know how Martha can be at times. ;)
