A "Daddy" Gift

I've found buying presents for men challenging! With Father's Day right around the corner, I wanted to share something that would work well for the Daddy in your life.

My friend, Jessica, was looking for a special birthday present, from her sons, to her husband.  Together, we came up with this.

I took a canvas and painted it white.  I dry brushed it with navy blue. We traced the kids hands and cut them out of scrapbooking paper.  I Mod Podged the hands to the canvas.  I cut the words (navy) and key (gold) from vinyl and transferred it on to the canvas. To make the canvas look framed, I hot glued navy blue ribbon, trimmed in gold, to the edge of the canvas. I was really happy with how it turned out and I think he liked it too.
