Number 3 Birthday Decoration

I am in the midst of making decorations for Wynn's birthday pary in January.  I saw a neat idea on Pinterest a while back that showed how to make an enormous number.  Here is the link to my inspiration - Lowe's Party Idea   I took a different spin on it by using what I already had in my own craft stash. I seem to be doing this a lot lately because I would not allow myself into Michaels or JoAnn Fabrics for the month of October in order to just find ways to use my current supplies.

I cut out a large number three out of cardboard and then simply glued two colors of paper shred to it. The inspiration used

The project for me was completely free because I used a cardboard box and some paper shred that my mom gave to me after her craft supply clean out. Wynn really likes it and I'm excited to use it at her party. I'm sure you'll see me creating some party decorations for the next few weeks.
