"Love you" flip book

Did anyone else just realize that Father's Day is coming up fast!?
If you are trying to figure out what you are going to do/make your hubby for Father's day (like me) here is an idea that might help :)

I made this little flip book for Aaron's birthday and filled it with things that Mackenzie and I love about him.

The book itself was purchased in the dollar section at Michaels. (I think it is made out of chipboard.)

I used the front piece of the book as a guide and traced the flower pattern onto some manly scrapbook paper. I also had Mackenzie color on a piece of white paper and used that as one of the backgrounds instead of scrapbook paper.

Then I cut the pieces out and used double sided tape to stick them onto the chipboard book.

(Now that I have discovered the many wonders of Mod Podge, I wish I would have Mod Podged the scrapbook paper to the book and then Mod Podged over everything when I was done to have sealed it).

Next, add some pictures and notes from you or the kids about how much you love your husband or dad!

Simple, inexpensive and cute!
