We first started making a picture frame caddy with a trophy on top. I figured this would be nice to have on his desk at work
I got this inspiration from one of the many emails I received from Michaels.
To make this you will need:
- Trophy kit
That's it, so easy! Brayden & Ella painted the entire thing themselves, I did give a little direction here and there when I saw lots of unpainted sections, but they did it all themselves and they were so proud!
I knew I wanted to take pictures of the kids with the letters D, A & D so we headed outside one day to do that...of course this was no easy feat, I think I had to promise 20 suckers to Ella and she still didn't smile! After taking the pictures I kept thinking how am I going to get them small enough for the openings, 3" x 3". I was toying with getting 4 x 6's then cutting but was worried they wouldn't look right. After searching the internet I found Foxgram and they could print my pictures in 3 x 3 for a small cost. I decided to order from them and was so happy when they showed up 4 days after ordering!
Look how cute these little prints are!
Here's how the trophy picture case looks all completed. We're going to fill the inside with his favorite candy. I hope the hubby loves it! I sure do!
The kids each wanted to make a card as well, Ella did this....
and Brayden did this
I think everything turned out awesome!! I love making fun stuff with my kiddos and love even more that they enjoy it too!
