Use a background mat to arrange picture and tiles. Arrange your photos inside the picture frame as desired and glue or tape to the mat. Select your words or phrases and gather the letter tiles for the specific words or phrases. Glue letters on the mat. Allow the letter tiles to dry completely. Place in a lovely box and present to dad on Father’s Day!

Tip: You can find used Scrabble tiles at yard sales and thrift shops to find the letters you need. However, don't take them out of a game that you will use in the future!
