Picture of Celebrity Crush Cardboard Cutout

Every year I strive to make my wife something unique and special for her birthday.  As with anything homemade, sometimes these gifts turn out like I expect, and other times... not so much.  This years gift, however, I just knew was going to be awesome before I even started....thanks to Adam Levine.

For those who don't know, Adam Levine is the frontman of Maroon Five. And my wife just so happens to have a huge crush on him. I know this because she brings it up every time we hear one of his songs or watch an episode of 'The Voice'. My idea for this year was to make a full size cardboard cutout of Mr. Levine and surprise her with it on the morning of her Birthday. 

Upon searching Instructables, I came upon a good one by FreakcitySF: How to make a cardboard stand up of someone!  However, my goal was to do this as inexpensively as I could, which ruled out making the print at Kinko's. Read on for instructions on how to make your very own Celebrity Crush Cutout for only about $5!
