My dad has been very supportive of me this past year. While I bet he wouldn't mind another massage from me I wanted to give him something different this year. But what's a poor student to do? Craft!

I told him that he had to wear what I made him all day. He hammed it up and got lots of compliments throughout the day. Originally his button was going to say "#1 Dad" but he wasn't going to be the only dad at the table so I thought it seemed unfair. My nephew refers to him as Papa so Big Papa fit well.

I came home early from brunch to find that my step-dad was going out to dinner with the family. I whipped this up really quick. Some backstory: When my mom was pregnant with my brother she asked my step dad a ton of "What if..." questions about their chil. My step-dad said he didn't care if he ran around with a rubber glove over his head exclaiming "I'm a squid! I'm a squid!" as long as he was happy. I've been told that the same goes for all of us.

The front

The inside

The toner started to run off instantly...Any tips? I think next time I may spray some workable fixative before printing to give the ink something to stick to.

Those are great! He looks proud.

If you're having trouble with toner sticking to regular printer paper, you probably need a new fuser. If it's specialty paper, make sure you get the stuff for laser printers next time Wink  As a temporary fix, though, try ironing it (with another piece of paper on top to protect the iron). (also no steam!)

Looks great and sure looks like one proud Papa. Smiley Personally I like the way it came out, toner fading and all.

What great gifts Cheesy perfect for any poor student. Love the brooch, and the back-story of the squid Tongue
