How to make a last minute, cheap, yet really fun Father's day gift

1Cut letters from a cereal box, paint in tattoo letter style and let dry, At 1am because it's too hot for your pregnant being to fall asleep.

2 Mess with the retardateur option of your canon rebel till you get a centered picture of your belly featuring one of those letters.

3 The next morning, get your toddler in a nice little dress with pretty pigtail in your mom's backyard and try to get some great shots of her holding the
P and the A.

4 Get some help from your mom. Because the toddler doesn't really like the concept of a photoshot that morning.

5 Get to the nearest drugstore and insert your memory card in their express photo boot. Select the 4 best pictures. Crop your mom's face and center them on the spot. Print.

6 Get to the dollar store and buy 4 wooden 6x4 picture frame. Place your pictures inside while you're waiting in the car for your mom picking up cabbage salad at a fast food chain.

7 Frame and wrap in craft paper.
Because the yule papers and the pink flowery paper your mom has doesn't quite fit the theme.

8 Give some crayon to your toddler and place the package in front of her. She won't need further instruction.

9 Make a nice bow with a little "Bonne Fête des Pères" note

10 Wait for the next morning to give it to your BF

Now you have a nice, very custom and personal PAPA sign to display in your nearly empty apart's walls!



  1. What a wonderful idea!!! I love it :)

  2. Aww I bet your BF loved it! I know I would =)

  3. SO cute! We did something similar for my husband's dad last year, spelling out PAPA (what the grandkids call him) - one letter for each grandchild. I hope he loved it!

  4. Love it! So simple and just perfect!

  5. That is soooo cute!!! What a fantastic idea.
