Father's Day Gift Idea

Father's Day is right around the corner so I'm going to share this easy Father's Day Gift that I made a few years ago. I saw the book "I Love My Daddy Because..." at the library and knew it would be perfect for a Father's Day project that I've been wanting to do. It is a board book that is approximately 8x8 inches and I bought it on Amazon for $6.99.

I first went through my photos with the book in front of me and found pictures of my husband and son that correlated with the text in the book. I used a super strong adhesive to stick the pictures in the book. Wherever you see an embellishment on the page, it's where a piece of the original picture was sticking out (a monkey's foot or giraffe's head). There were 2 double page spreads in the book where the text and the picture spread across the pages. For those I just put down pattern paper before adhering the pictures.

This was a super easy and very inexpensive project that has created an incredible gift for Father's Day. I am so pleased by how well it turned out, the pictures don't do it justice.
