Class Act Photo Holder

Is your Dad a class act? This project, inspired by our favorite photo of my father-in-law is a great way to display a photo of Dad looking all spiffy. Best of all, it is easy to do and makes a great memento. You can find fabric top hats in the doll making section of your local craft store. If you dad is not quite the top hat kind of guy, consider doing this project with a doll's straw hat or baseball cap. It will be just as cute and just as easy.

Black fabric top hat

Photo of Dad

Scissors

Red card stock

Glue

White acrylic paint pen

Top Hat DetailFind a photo of Dad that is about the size of the top hat, or else purchase the right sized top hat to match a photo that you have of Dad. The photo and hat should be approximately the same width. Trim the photo if necessary to fit. Cut the card stock to be a half inch larger than the photo on the top and sides, and one inch larger on the bottom. Glue the photo to the card stock. Let the glue dry. While the glue is drying write on the front of the top hat "DAD You're a Real Class Act" with the paint pen as shown in the photo. Let the paint dry. Using the scissors, cut a 1/2 inch slit in the top of the top hat for the card stock to rest in. Slide the card stock into the hat, with the photo facing forward.
