Father’s Day Photo Frame

  Make a fathers Day photo frame from a $1.50 wooden #Michaels frame

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.
