Father's Day Photo Frame

This hand-made Father's Day Photo Frame, by Smart Bottom Enterprises, is a great project for kids to create a personal present for Dad! Little ones will love colouring the letters, while you can do the tricky parts like cutting and sticking the photos.

For this project, you will need:
• Card Stock
• Pictures
• Crayons
• Scissors
• Tape
• 6 Paperclips

• You can make your own letters, or you can use these. Just drag them to your desktop and print them onto card stock in whatever size you like.

• Have your kids color each letter before you cut them out. Then trim your pictures a little bit larger than the openings and tape them into place behind the frame. For this set, I cut the opening of the A a little bit bigger to fit the picture. Then I outlined it again with black marker.

• Overlap the letters and glue or tape them together at the back. I backed ours with cardboard, but you really don't need to. Then, open up your paperclips. Attach the small part of each paperclip to the bottom of the back of the frame. For this one, I used glue dots and they worked out fine, but tape will work too.

• Sit it up on the paperclips and you're done!

Cute as can be!
