What you need:
1. Foam insulation 4x8 sheet - Home center. I used the white foam but the blue or pink foam works also.
2. Tape measure
3. Sand paper
4. Razor knife with a really long blade
5. String - or string substitute (I used headphones)
7. Spray glue - make sure it is foam safe - craft store
Step 1: Cut Out Shape
Cut the foam into rectangles the size you want your tombstones to be.
Now grab your string and stretch it across your foam. Now fold your string in half. Where the string bends is the center of the foam.
Grab you marker and hold it in one hand with one end of the string and stretch the string out to the bend, to the center of the foam. Keep that hand there and with your maker hand draw a semicircle at the top of your tombstone. Then cut along the line to make your tombstone shape.
After that, trace that tombstone twice and cut out. You want three identical tombstones.
Now sand the edges to get rid of jagged cuts.
Step 2: Make Pocket
Now take the protective plastic off the foam.
Step 3: Lettering
I went with the generic RIP but you can put anything you want on them.
First draw your letters on the foam. Then cut around the letters, making a V shape around the letter outline.
Step 4: Make It Break
After each layer is broken you want to glue them back together. Don't glue where you broke them just glue the three layers together.
Step 5: Paint
