Exploding Picture Box
I used Exploding Picture Box to propose to my girlfriend and she absolutely loved it! She literally carries the box around with her everywhere we go now so that she can show it to all of our friends.

Walmart prints 4″x6″ photos for $0.25ea, so I was able to print all of my photos for just a few bucks total. The hardest part was getting everything printed in the correct sizes. I used Microsoft PowerPoint to accurately size the images and lay them out on 4″x6″ slides. Then I saved each slide as a 4″x6″ image. At first, the images saved at a very low resolution, so I had to change a Windows registry key to increase the image resolution (Google it).
The image sizes that I used (which I set in PowerPoint) were: 4.5″x3.5″; 3.75″x2.9″; 3.25″x2.38; 2.75″x2″
