How to Make a Special Daddy/Daughter Date Book

Father's Day is almost here and this year my daughter and I decided to take a handmade approach to her gifts for her Dad. We wanted to think outside the “Tie” box and create something that would have lasting sentimental value for them both – and I think we hit it out of the park! Today I want to share How to Make a Special Daddy-Daughter Date Book!

Not only is this an amazing last minute Father's Day gift idea if you've run out of time, but better yet – I'm also sharing my design with you… for free!! Woo-hoo!! See the link and details at the bottom of this post to get your very own copy.

The cover features a buffalo check background that has been embellished with a fun and fancy frame with a few white blooms layered to give it a subdued but slightly feminine feel to appeal to the daughters 🙂

The file includes a “bookplate” page as well as an assortment of pre-printed pages with suggested “outings” as well as a blank page that can be printed as many times as necessary.

Each page has room for a photo plus lines of text.

We've filled out a couple of pages of the book my daughter will give her dad – I think he's gonna love this! My daughter is so excited about it because not only is it showcasing fun memories they've already made, but it's leaving room for many new adventures too!

To make the pages even more fun and vivacious, we used whimsical washi tape (bought at Hobby Lobby) to attach the photos to the book. Colorful markers add a dose of little girl charm.

I recommend double-sided printing of the pages – it will help it appear more “book-like.”

To bind the book, you could staple it or simply use a ribbon to keep the pages together.

I included an inspiring quote in the file as well.

To assemble the Daddy/Daughter Date Book:

  1. Download
  2. Print – I recommend printing the Cover on Letter size (8.5″ x 11″) CARDSTOCK. For the interior pages, I recommend printing these double-sided on Letter size (8.5″ x 11″) TEXT weight paper.
  3. Assemble – Fold the pages in half.
  4. Bind – use either staples or a ribbon to bind the book together.
  5. Give!

Here's a snapshot of what's included in the file:
