Send Dear Old Dad a Photo Puzzle in the Mail This Father’s Day
Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3
Your dad is one cool, Rolling-Stones-loving, facial-hair-rocking dude.
He deserves to get something equally as rad as he is this Father’s Day.
Send him a photo puzzle in the mail!
Instead of receiving one card for Father’s Day, dad will get multiple envelopes in the mail with pieces of a photo puzzle in them creating excitement, magic, and an awesome image in the end.
Dad will get the first envelope in the mail with a card and a sweet handwritten note letting him know how much you love him.
When the final puzzle piece arrives, your tough as nails dad will find it hard not to get a little choked up when he’s reminded how cool he is for raising such an awesome person.
p.s. Our friends at Mount July make really rad retro inspired color-splashed camera filters. It’s their last week of Kickstarter funding! Help them out here.
Why It’s Cool
This Father’s Day send your pop a week’s worth of greetings with the accompanying weeks worth of happiness.
Suspense, supporting the US Postal Service, and making dear old dad smile. Sweet!
- A photo your dad will love
- 7 envelopes
STEP 1: PICK AND CHOOSE
This is fun ’cause you can take a trip down memory lane while looking through your photos for an awesome pic to send to your dad.
STEP 2: A MILLION LITTLE PIECES
You can keep it simple with square shapes or go a little wild and start cutting different shapes that all fit together.
STEP 3: SEND A LITTLE SUGAR
“Hey Dad! Remember that time I stuck a raisin up my nose and it turned into a grape? Good times.”
Write a little note to dad on the back of each piece of the puzzle letting your dad know how awesome he is or a memory you’ve shared.
You can also write one word or two on each puzzle piece that will form a sentence when the puzzle is put together.
STEP 4: EXPLAIN YOURSELF
Also, thanks for being a cool dude that has taught me many things. Things that include but are not limited to: how to ride a bike, how to make algebra easy, to always carry a hanky in your pocket.
You are the best.
Love, your favorite child.
STEP 5: PIECE BY PIECE
STEP 6: TO SIR, WITH LOVE
STEP 7: RAIN, SLEET, OR SNOW
