Instructions for how to make a DIY Framed Dad Birthday Card
There are so many reasons why making your dad a homemade card is such a special gesture. For one, it shows that you care enough to take the time to create something specifically for him. It also allows you to express your feelings in a creative and personal way. Homemade cards are always more thoughtful than store-bought ones, and they often become cherished keepsakes.
If you’re not sure what to say in the card, think about what your dad loves most and use that as inspiration for your card. Whether it’s a simple message of love or a funny inside joke, he’s sure to appreciate the effort you’ve put into making him feel special.
Take a picture of your children holding a blank poster board or bulletin board and save it to your computer or picture file.
Go to Picmonkey.com and click on “create new” from “blank canvas.” Scroll down to “print sizes” and select 7×5.
Upload the photo and adjust the size to fit the template.
Navigate to your favorite photo printing service (like Walgreens Photo) and upload the photo to print. Or, use your printer and print on photo paper.
Change the name of the file to something you will remember and click to download.
Add a text box from the sidebar. Drag the text box to fit over the blank bulletin board. Place your desired text into the text box and change the font, size, and color/s as desired.
To create the frame: Ask children to decorate the puzzle pieces as desired.
Using hot glue, attach the photo pieces to the frame, making sure the frame can stand without balancing on the pieces. Allow to dry completely.
Place the photo in the frame and it’s ready to gift.
