Big Cardboard Numbers

Big Cardboard Numbers These big cardboard numbers were for my school’s culmination ceremony.

Lucky for me, all materials were already on hand, but if you had to buy the plaster bandages, I used about 4 rolls which I think would run you about $35 or so.


• Old cardboard
• Xacto knife
• Mini plastic cups
• Craft glue
• Plaster bandages
• Scissors
• Assorted acrylic paint



I think the photos say it all, but let me know if you have any questions. I plan to reuse these for a few years now, updated with one new digit of course.

    These came out so cute! I was lucky enough to see them in person. I wish I had taken a pic with them of the boys on the last day of school with the boys. Great idea and tutorial!!
