Here are the supplies that I used. For the base of the collage, I used an old laminated board that we had that was the perfect size, but you could use a canvas or a piece of plywood too if that is what you have. I love using recycled supplies where possible!
board, 8" x 9" or whatever size you like
scrapbook adhesive and/or glue
modge podge + foam brush
chipboard letters that spell dad, buttons and other stickers or embellishments
Picture, 5" x 7", trimmed if desired.
1. Measure and cut scrapbook paper to cover board or canvas. Using foam brush, apply a thin layer of modge podge to board and press scrapbook paper on top. Use a ruler to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles. Let dry.
2. Add picture and surround picture with cardstock scraps & embellishments and the word "DAD". Play around until you have a pleasing design!
3. When you have the picture & embellishments in the desired place, use scrapbook adhesive or glue to attach pictures and embellishments to board. Done!
I made this gift for my husband to display in his office. As you know, I love picture-inspired gifts.
