Fathers Day Canvas Gift

First let me preface this by warning my husband if he happens to be reading this to stop right now so as not to ruin his Father’s Day Present Surprise!!!

Now with that said, LOOK WHAT I MADE EVERYBODY!!!!

And it only took me 10-15 minutes from start to finish!

Here is what I did:

1. I took these 3 pictures of the kids from our recent trip. These pictures captured one of the best days of the vacation for us, so looking at their sweet smiles takes me right back!

2. Then I uploaded these pictures (try ipiccy.com) and made a simple 4-square collage and added some text.

3. Finally, I uploaded the finished collage to Canvas People and ordered my FREE canvas!

And yes,  I said “FREE CANVAS!!!!” Canvas People offers a FREE 8×10  canvas or $50 off any size canvas for Father’s Day. All you have to pay for is shipping, so this gift only cost me $14.95! I would have spent more than that on another tie!!!

When my wrapped canvas came just 1 week later, I gave each of the kids a crayon and they signed the back.

Simple, but meaningful- I love it! :)

      finding the right pictures for this is the hardest part! Even mine was cut off a bit more than I wanted- that is the problem with the wrapping of the canvas, and i wish there was a way to drag the photo onto the canvas, but that would be too easy! :) my only suggestion is to play around with different pictures or maybe ad a frame to the ones you have via picnik before you put them in the collage- that way the frame will be cut off and your pictures wont. Sorry I am not much help! The first canvas I tried making was a pain in the butt, but now that I have made a few it is easier. Keep trying, it will look great!!!!
