DIY Papier Mache Number One

Here's how to create a big papier mache number one for a first birthday party - It can be used as a photo prop, a party prop or both. The best part is that it can be created using stuff you probably already have in your house.
btw, if you would like to see more pics from my son's first birthday be sure to check out my photographers blog Love Bee Photography She is amazing!
 Here are the things you'll need. Note, you'll also need paint.
 Tape the boxes together as per below.
 Fill up a bowl with 1 cup water, 1 cup flour and some white glue (PS - don't use whole wheat flour)
Cut your newspaper into strips, dip each strip into the paste and place it on the boxes. Continue this step until the entire number is covered.
Let it dry over night, paint and you're done : )

Note: More 1st Birthday party pics to come
