Photos are one of my favorite things to give for special occasions — and when you pair one with your favorite handmade card, you've got a really personal and fun gift. I've used a Father's Day card in the example, but this works great for all kinds of occasions. This DIY is super quick and easy!

  • World's Best Dad card 

DIY Father's Day Idea


STEP 1: Cut your scrapbook paper to 8 by 10 inches. Use the double-sided tape to adhere it to the frame backing in all four corners.

STEP 2: Align your card and photos to the center of the backing. Adhere them with the double-sided tape.

STEP 3 (OPTIONAL): Write a message inside your card. I like to leave my card open so that the message I've written inside is still visible, but you can also close the card using the double-sided tape if you prefer.
