Paint Chip Gift Idea for Father's Day

eighteen25 always has some great ideas..

Here's a simple, last minute gift to make for that special dad or grandpa. and it's pretty near free to make. just take a quick trip to Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart or anywhere that sells paint and grab yourself some free paint samples. as many as you think you might need.

Then you'll need to download and print off our little saying sheet HERE or HERE if you're an only child.

After printing off the sayings, we held the paper up to light with the paint sample behind it. lined it up so the saying we wanted was centered. then flipped the paper over, traced it and cut it out.

Next, use a small hole punch and punch holes in the top corner of all of your samples.
You can use ribbon to hold your samples together, or a binder ring...

Now have your Kids draw some pictures or write some reasons why they love Daddy!
(this idea works for Grandpa's too!)
