Every year, along with the electronics, the BBQ tools, and the gift cards, I like my little girl to have something to give her dad for Father’s Day that reminds him of why it is so wonderful to be a father. This year we went with a sweet dad photo for his office.
The nice thing about the name Dad, is that you only need two letters. Lots of craft stores have cute letters to pick from or to buy plain and design your own. These white ones come from Hobby Lobby for $2.99 a letter.
We did a quick photo shoot using the two letters. We put extra emphasis on getting good pictures with the letter D because we would need two of the letters for the collage. Mostly I want to showcase her sweet, silly personality.
When we came home, I loaded the pictures in Canva.
On the design anything bar, hit the custom size icon in the top right corner.
Change the format to inches in the drop down menu and then add a width of 10 inches and a height of 8 inches.
In the template bar, type 3 and then scroll down until you find the three long blank boxes. This is a FREE template, so perfect for everyone to use!
Upload your photos into Canva, by hitting upload on the left hand side of the screen. You can upload from your computer, Facebook, Instagram or even Google Drive.
Once you have your photos uploaded, drag them onto your design. You can also use any of the other designs Canva has that have three vertical photos across them.
When you are done, hit download in the top right corner. Then you can take your photo to your favorite photo center and get it printed in an 8×10!
This is easy and fast, perfect as a last minute gift. It is also very, very affordable!
Don’t worry, I didn’t spoil his present by posting it on here. He peeked a long time ago. I guess he doesn’t love surprises. 🙂
