faux ipad father's day picture frame

May 31, 2010

9.56 inches x 7.47 inches

Ben's #1 Father's Day/birthday wishlist item is an iPad. He dreams of it...but for now, that's all it will be--a dream. (Don't feel too sorry for him--he has an iphone a brand new mac laptop, an xbox, and various other electronic gadgets with which to amuse himself.)

But I thought it would be fun to make him a little faux ipad picture frame featuring one of the pictures I took of Juliet in her father's day photo shoot

It was simple enough to make--just cut out two pieces of craft foam (white for the back and black for the front). I used scissors and a craft knife. (I also looked up the exact dimensions of an iPad and used those to make the frame.) 

I curved the edges to make it look more like an iPad. Then I just glued the pieces together, traced a dime for the power button, taped a 5x7 picture of Juliet inside and was done!

I personalized the picture with a message on picnik.com. It reads, "iDad, you're my hero." 

I think he's going to like it. 

Maybe not as much as a real iPad, but almost as much.
