Men really do love their dogs, and while it can be difficult to think of a gift for men, you can’t go wrong by creating a work of art that showcases his beloved four-legged friend.

First, you’ll need a good photograph. Then you’ll need to find scrapbook paper and embellishments that work well together.

Try different layouts, moving things around a bit, adding and removing some of the embellishments you’ve chosen, until you find a design you like. Then glue everything down. You can use stickers or punches to create paw prints or bones, and you can even give it a personal touch by adding the dog’s name.

Place the finished scrapbook page in a nice photo frame, then attach hardware or rope to the back for hanging, if it isn’t already there. Or include an easel with the artwork for displaying on a table or bookshelf.
