Father’s Day Interview and Portrait {a sweet and simple gift for Papa}

Father's Day Interview & Portrait | Mama.Papa.Bubba.

I’ve always adored handmade gifts, especially when they’re from munchkins, so this year Gracen and I created something simple but from-the-heart for Bradley – a Father’s Day interview and portrait.

We started with an interview all about her Papa.  I’ve seen a ton of these on Pinterest and we did something similar when she turned 2, so I just made up a bunch of sentence starters, read them aloud to her, and she finished them off.  I was actually a little surprised as I wasn’t sure if she’d fully understand how to  finish off sentences like this, but it was no problem at all. Some of her answers – like the fact that Brad likes to wear leggings and ‘makes her food….cereal mostly!’ cracked me right up!

To jazz things up a little, I gathered some inspiration for Daffodil Design and created a couple of mini buntings using scrapbook paper and baker’s twine.

While I did that, Miss G worked on a drawing of Bradley.  It was her idea to retrieve this picture from her room since he was at work and she couldn’t look at him in person.

To put everything together, I simply tacked the buntings onto the interview and portrait papers with a teensy amount of tape, carefully outlined her portrait with black felt, then popped them into frames.

Pretty cute, right?  My favourite part is that she was just tickled pink about the way Papa’s shoes had turned out…  Proud as a peacock.
