Alright, it’s day two of my great crazy idea to do Father’s Day Week and post a new DIY Father’s Day gift idea each day! The good news though….I LOVE how this turned out and can’t wait to give it to the hubs!
Here’s what you need:
Mod Podge & Foam Brush
Ink Distress Pad & Sand Paper
Leather Lace & Thread (Optional)
Print your desired text onto your scrapbook paper. I used The Proclamation of the Family and formatted my text to print over my desired paragraph. (This took a few attempts to get it perfect, I’m not gonna lie!)
Trace and cut out the tag shape& hole from your photo and paper
Step Three & Four:
Ink distress and sand the edges of your paper. I choose not to ink distress my picture and only sanded the very edges so I would not scratch the photo. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your paper and then place onto wooden tag.
Crap…Oh Wait I Like That Moment:
While lightly rubbing the paper to make sure there were no bubbles a bit of the ink from my words rubbed off. I had a momentary freak out then realized I really like how it was “roughing up” the words…so I rubbed a little more! Seal top with a think layer of Mod Podge when dry.
Once completely dry flip your wooden tag over and Mod Podge on your picture. Seal as mentioned above and allow to dry. I did a second coat just around the edges of the wooden tag to prevent images from lifting.
Once everything is totally and completely dry attach key ring. You can end here if you’d like but I wanted to add some leather lace.
(I think that is as embellished as the hubs would allow!)
Adding Leather Lace:
I just cut my lace to the size I wanted and used a needle to thread through one side. Tie a knot at the end of your thread, leaving a long tail past the knot and pull through.
Wrap your thread around and around and around! Tie a knot with the thread you’re holding and the tail left behind the 1st knot buried under the wrapped thread.
Trim the tails and wipe a little bit of Mod Podge over the knot are to help secure
You’re Done and now have a super cute Father’s Day Key Chain!
