“I Love Daddy” Father’s Day Gift Idea

Father’s Day is just around the corner! If you need a super cute last minute Father’s Day gift idea, check out this “I Love Daddy” photo collage idea. AJ is a little too young to actually help make a Father’s Day gift this year, but I wanted to make sure she was included. If you have little kids, this cute photo collage is a great way to give Dad a present “from” the baby!

Such a cute Father's Day gift idea! And all you need are crayons, cardboard, and a picture frame!

JM has been asking for some nice photos to put on his desk at work; AJ is so cute and he likes to brag! 🙂

“I Love Daddy” Father’s Day Gift Idea

  • 30 minutes (time spent doing stuff)
  • 1 hour (time spent waiting around)
  • 1 and a half hours (total project time)

Tools

  • camera (I used my Canon Rebel T3i which is now discontinued, but there is a newer model in the same series)
  • photo editing software (I use Lightroom, but most photo printing places have basic editing software you can use if you don’t have your own software)
  • photo printer, or a photo printing place like CVS or Walgreens

Materials

Instructions

Cardboard is perfect for this project because it’s always easy to find a cardboard box, plus it’s nice and sturdy so the baby won’t destroy the sign before you get a good picture! I cut one of the end flaps off of a cardboard box using a utility knife. Then I wrote out “i [heart] daddy” on the cardboard using crayons.

I put AJ in some cute clothes and set her down on the rug in the nursery. I opened up the window to get some good natural light, then I grabbed the camera, handed her the sign, and took a ton of pictures! At this age she naturally wants to explore anything you give her, so it was really easy to get some good shots.

Turn a photo like this into a cute Father's Day gift! And all you need are crayons, cardboard, and a picture frame!

Pretty much everything goes right into her mouth, and this ended up being my favorite shot of the day. I love that she was looking right at the camera!

Once you’ve taken enough pictures, edit them to make sure they’re nice and bright, then get them printed! I just had these printed at Walgreens using their 1 hour photo service.

Stick the photos into your collage frame, and you’re done!
