Father's Day is THIS Sunday?!?!

Are you frantically trying to figure out something special for your Daddy-O ...
here is a fun little last minute idea that will take you 30 minutes or less!

I LOVE a great old picture ...
and a Polaroid is my all time favorite!

So I thought it would be so fun to have a few little Polaroid pictures of loved ones to litter my Popsicle's office at work or even his fridge at home.
Just a lovely reminder of how much he is treasured!


I printed out (with the help of my Momsie and her color printer - since we live in a black and white world at my house) a few Polaroid pictures of my little family.

Are you wondering how to turn a recent photo into a Polaroid?
Yeah, I thought you might.
Check out Picnik or Poladroid.
They are the two easiest programs I know of.


Then I cut out my pictures ... they measured 2 inches x 1.6 inches.
Then I cut out foam board pieces, with an x-acto knife, measuring the same size to use as a backing.
Then I smeared some Modge Podge to seal them to the foam board and put a little sticky magnet on the back.

Voila!

You have a fun, unique and useful gift to tell YOUR Mr. Man how much you care.
Go love on those Daddy's this weekend!
They need to know how much they are loved and appreciated!
