Cut a piece of clear vinyl 1/4" bigger than your photo. Cut a piece of craft foam the same size. Line them up and tape together three sides using colored vinyl tape. Leave the top open but put a piece of tape cut lengthwise at the edge for decoration. Glue suede cord at the edge of the type, all around the frame.
Cut a 12" piece of suede cord. Tie a small loop on one end. Glue it down the middle back of your frame. Glue on the letters D A D. Tie some pony beads to the bottom. Trim. Give the frame to Dad with an extra piece of cord so he can tie it to his car's rear view mirror.
