Show Dad your smiling face (or that of your kiddos) for an easy peasy Father’s Day gift that he’ll keep for years to come.
I came across this photo of me and my little girls (when they were still little,) and I just had to find a way to save this special memento from the past as a Father’s Day gift for my husband.
The piece took very little time and whenever I can use a hammer I know I can relieve a little stress at the same time. (This is why we moms are SO good at multitasking—it’s good for us!)
I had just brought home one of Vintaj’s new brass blanks and knew that it would make the best substrate for this little “giftie.” And now that I’ve become a letter punch addict, if I’m working with metal, I have to find a way to use my punches. My Adirondack® Inks came in handy for an easy altering of the brass blank surface. The addition of a fancy and yet semi-masculine fleur-de-lis was the finishing touch.
This project was so easy that my non-artist hubby could make one for me for my birthday. Oh darlin’…
And, remember, if you try this project, we’d love to see your version. Stop by the clothpaperscissors.com community and share your work. Remember to write “Father’s Day gift” in the tag section!
