Father’s Day gift wrap

My dad works in finance and says that the best gift we can give him is no gift at all. I’m ALL about that–I’m totally cheap. But, I’m guessing there are some fathers out there who love a good gift and this gift wrap idea takes the form of a card too, so consider it part of the gift. My dad’s really good at putting up scanned photos of us as kiddies on Facebook, so I just collected them and printed them off in black and white. Bada bing, bada boom.

Supplies: box, kraft paper, pictures of your dad (make sure you shrink them down to a small size that will fit the size of the hole you create–I made mine 2×2″), scissors, x-acto, circle template, tape

Step 1: Cut the kraft paper to the size of the box and wrap it to find out where you should put your holes. You don’t have to wrap it all the way.
Step 2: Using your circle template (I used the cap of a Mod Podge bottle), trace onto the kraft paper and repeat for all the photos you want to use.
Step 3: Cut out half of your circle with an x-acto knife and crease the circle over so it opens half way.
Step 4: On the back side, select a photo and affix it into the frame of the half circle.
Step 5: Secure it with tape.
Step 6: Repeat for all the circles.
Step 7: Finish it off with a ribbon.

Donzo.

Isn’t it so fun?! It’s like a trip down memory lane AND a gift all in one. I’m a big fan of this pop-up method and I can envision it for so many things. Remember the Valentine’s hearts? The fun never ends.

Happy Father’s day to all you dads! And a special early Father’s day to the original Lars.
