Father's Day gift Idea

Father's Day or Papa's Day frame!!! A girl at my church made frames with vinyl. I didn't really care for the style, but the idea was cute! So, I made my own!

Here are some supplies you will need:
Stickers of your choice, frame, paint, paint brush, and Mod Podge.

I chose 2 different styles of stickers because I wanted to have the first letters in the names to be accented.

I got this frame for $1 at Michael's

I really wanted to paint the frame black and use white stickers, but REALLY, there was ZIP, ZERO, NADA stickers in white that I liked. I only had one to choose from!?! SOOOOOO, I painted mine white instead. BUT you can do yours any color you want.

So, I painted my frame with a matted finish. Then put the stickers on. You can do what ever saying you want or just put a bunch of different words on it. (It doesn't even have to be about Father's Day!)

To make the heart I took a lower case 'v' and put the number 8 on top of it and cut of the extra. Then I painted the middle black to match.

Then I Mod Podged the stickers on it. This gave the frame a glossy finish.

The frame had no glass in it (perfect for mailing) so I Mod Podged the photos to give them some extra protection.
I photo shopped the kid's names and faces out because I want to keep them anonymous!
