I’m not really cheap, as much as I am frugal. The frugal girl in me hates spending money on a card that’s going to go in the trash. So much so that I have learned to create cards that cost almost nothing at all. I have started making cards out of my kids art work and photos, which, in my opinion, is more personal and adds a special touch. I also have discovered a few FREE apps that allow you to make collages and add words to your pics. If you have a tablet or smartphone, you can find free apps too. Two of the apps I used for this project is PicSay and Super Collage. I’m sure there are others, so you may want to search, but I found those to be easy to use.
On three plain white sheets of paper, we wrote “I Love Dad” using magic markers. I tried for a whole afternoon to get photos of my children together, but that was a huge fail! So after I found out that it was a daunting task trying to get a group shot, I snapped individual photos of each child holding a photo instead. I used the Super Collage app to put them together and the PicSay app to add words.
The photo below will show the final product as well as my attempt to get a photo of them together!
The finished project is a great looking Father’s Day card that is personal and virtually free. And not only does the card make a great gift, but it also made memories for our family as well.
What will you be making for the dad in your life this year for Father’s Day?
