Father of the Bride or Father's Day Gift

We just got a silhouette cameo and decided to give it a try.

I wanted to make something really special for my dad, since I usually only make stuff like this for my mom.

For my Dad's gift, I didn't think about adding it to the blog and taking step by step pictures.  Sorry!

Father's day gift
Father of the Bride
Dad... Of all the walks we've taken together, This one is my favorite.

 I picked up a unfinished plaque at my local craft store, already cut in this shape.  
I used a 40% off coupon making it only $1.69.  

I painted it black with craft paint.  After the paint dried, I lightly sanded the edges.  I really wanted to find an unfinished frame that would work, but I couldn't in the short amount of time I had.  So, I decided to mod podge the picture on.  I taped around the picture leaving a small gap to give the mod podge a clean edge. 

 I then cut out the saying in vinyl on my silhouette, and adhered it to the plaque.  Finally, spray painted the entire project with clear spray paint to seal it and protect it better.  

You can either attach ribbon to the top to hang it, drill a hole an inch from the bottom in the back and place a dowel to it like a framed picture on a desk, or display it on an easel.  
Would make a great thank you gift after the wedding to Dad. 

Hope he likes it!
