Yesterday was my hubby's birthday, so naturally I made him a present from me and the boys. I started with a kit;
First I applied paper to both pieces of chipboard (the piece that says Dad and the backer board). I chose a purple and spring green stripe for the backer board and a spring green with purple polka dot for Dad. Then I cut around the edges;
Inked the edges;
And ended up with this;
Next I added the pictures of our kids. I traced the openings of the "D's" onto the backer board, then used the openings to help me cut the pics to the right size. Add a little adhesive;
Then a roll with the brayer to make sure it all stays down;
I glued the DAD piece onto the backer board with some adhesive and some Zig glue. It stuck really well! Next I put together the clock mechanism. No pics of that, nobody else was home to take pics while I worked. It was very simple though, and detailed instructions are provided. I ended up with this;
Isn't it awesome? Best of all (don't tell the hubby) the kit was on clearance a few months ago at my local scrapbook store and I got it for $6.00! Not trying to be cheap, but if I can end up with something this fabulous for less, I'm happy!
The hubby LOVED his gift and the matching card;
It was a very happy birthday for dad. Hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed making it.
