The bond between my children and their grandparents is the sweetest thing, it’s a love that runs deep and I love seeing them together. Plus it takes me back to my childhood and things they did with me. I wanted to make a Papa Picture Frame to capture one of those sweet moments. My favorite one (I think Papa’s too) is taking the kids for a ride in the wagon pulled by the tractor, I loved this as a little girl and the joy on the kids faces is adorable. Any papa will love getting a Papa Picture Frame!

This gift is perfect for anytime of the year, I made this as a Christmas gift, but it’s perfect for a birthday, father’s day, or grandparents day. This gift can also be customized for grandma’s to.

Hobby Lobby has become my favorite craft store and I was so excited to find this box frame.

Hobby-Lobby-Photo-Frame to create a Papa Picture Frame

My dad loves red tractors (he’s an International Harvester guy) so I had to paint his frame red to match his red tractor. I used True Red Anita’s Acrylic Paint and it took about 2 coats. Remember when you paint to remove the glass from the frame.

Then I spent probably a couple hours in Cricut Design Space™creating this design. I get lost in fonts and banners and I couldn’t decide and kept changing it. It’s a rabbit hole for me. I decided on using the GingerCookies Font because it looks like kid writing (because all of the grandchildren are under 5) and it’s an adorable font.

Vinyl-Words-for-Papa Picture Frame

Transfer all the words to the photo frame. I let my paint dry for a day before I add the vinyl just to make sure it’s dry and ready. I added all of the grandchildren’s names around the picture frame. In Design Space I attached the hearts to each child’s name.


I can’t wait to see my dads face when he opens this. He is going to love it!
