Craft Corner...Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!

Our Craft Corner today is a special thing for dad. If you haven't gotten him a gift and need something easy to make, try this. It's a special frame for the perfect picture of you and him that he can hang in his office, room or anywhere else. It is very easy and probably won't take you longer than 30 minutes. It'll definitely be a keeper.

All you need for this project is:

*a 6in by 6in piece of cardstock
*8 2in by 2in squares cut out of patterned paper
*either a mini 2in by 2in paper frame or make one with paper
*a 2in by 2in cute picture of the two of you

Here's how to make it:

Thanks to Kristina Werner, we have this idea. She made a card kind of like this and we changed it and put our twist to it. First you need to use a EZ Runner or double-sided tape to attach the 2in by 2in pieces of paper around the outside edge. Then you can take your picture, put some adhesives on it and stick it down. Now, take your pre-made frame and use mini glue dots or tiny pieces of double-sided tape to attach it over your picture. If you don't have a frame already, you can take a 2 1/2 in. piece of paper and cut around the edge with a decorative scissor. Instead of putting your picture on first you can lay that on top of your homemade frame and then attach the frame to the cardstock. The last step is to attach yarn to the back of the cardstock and stick it in a bag or wrap it up and wait until tomorrow to give your treasure to him. Impress your dad with your artistic skills. :)
