Step into a photo booth and strike a pose with our easy-to-make number props, and you've got an extra-fun way to wish the folks on your list a happy New Year.
Cut the numerals 2, 0, and 8 from card stock.
Head to the nearest photo booth -- a task that's unlikely to require much arm twisting -- and have your kids hold the numbers in front of them. For best results, take a 4-photo strip of them holding each of the relevant numbers. Repeat until you get 4 photos you like.
At home, cut apart your favorites and use a glue stick to attach them to a 3- by 8-inch piece of construction paper so they look like one continuous photo-booth strip. Add some festive "confetti" with small round and star-shaped rubber stamps and metallic paint.
Take the card to a copy shop and have them print 3 cards per 8 1/2- by 11-inch sheet of card stock. Ask them to cut apart the cards and trim each back to the original 3 by 8 inches. You can mail them as postcards or in standard business-size envelopes.
Cost per 100 cards: about $45
