With my hectic May schedule (3 weddings and counting) I thought I better get busy on a Father’s Day Gift, before it creeps up on me. The Scor-Pal was very handy to turn a $1.50 Michaels frame into a sweet Father’s Day Photo Frame. This week May Arts Ribbon and Scor-Pal have teamed up to bring you some ah-mazing projects. I hope you’ll hop along!
For this project you will need: cheap wood frame, 12 x 12 sheet of pattern paper (DCWV), Fathers Day tags (Authentique), May Arts Ribbon, a Scor-Pal, and a Adhesive (I used Xyron). If you’re not already an owner of a Scor-Pal, be sure to leave a comment to win one, along with your choice of 3 spools of May Arts Ribbon!
1. Lay paper pattern side down and trace around the frame leaving 1″ of paper around each edge. Scor on pencil lines and 1/4″ from the pencil line (stand the frame on the edge to measure for the second line).
2. Cut out hole for the photo, and the square in each corner.
3. I used my Xyron, to apply adhesive. It lets me roll through the entire sheet of paper and gives an even coat of adhesive. Line frame up with scored lines. Fold edges up over sides and adhere paper to the back.
4. Add a photo of Dad and embellish with May Arts ribbon- I used Burlap, Suede string, Silk, and Sequins.
Any Dad would love this Father’s Day Gift, and your pocket book will thank you too, can you believe it was only 1.50!!

This is really sweet! Not cheap at all! Thanks for sharing!
I’ve had those in my cart multiple times, but am always worried about how to cover it and have it not look like my 3 year old did it. Thanks so much for the pictures!! Am excited to try it – pinning right now.
Super cute! I love the bright yellow and all the textures.

Debbie Caldwell says
What a great creative gift for Dad…you have inspired me. I do not have a score buddy, I use my paper trimmer to make creases…a bit time consuming 🙁 This is something I could make very quickly. I would love a chance to win the score buddy and any ribbon…they are all to great
Paula Parrish says
Great Idea! This is a wonderful project for my daughter and I to make together for her Dad. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I have been on the lookout for something to make with her, she loves crafting just like her Mom. ;o)
