Follow These Steps
Using a craft knife and working on a cutting mat, cut leather strips the length of the sides of the frame. Let a ruler guide the cut and use several passes to cut all the way through the leather.
To make angled edges, place a leather strip on the bottom of the frame and use a ruler and a pencil or chalk to draw a line from the inner bottom right corner of the frame to the outer bottom right corner of the frame. Cut along the line with a craft knife. Continue making angled cuts to the ends of each leather strip so that the angles line up at each corner.
Apply hot glue to the back of one strip of leather and attach it to the frame. Continue securing the other three strips of leather.
To personalize the frame with a monogram or message for Dad, place adhesive stencils on the frame and fill them in with craft paint. Remove the stencils and allow the paint to dry completely.
