A special thank you goes out to Disney Home Entertainment for sending my family a copy of Lady and the Tramp from The Walt Disney Signature Collection Blu-Ray to review. Opinions expressed about the film and my Puppy Frame Craft featured in this post are those of my own.
If I think about the movies I watched as a child, I have to say that one of the most memorable new puppy scenes was the moment when Jim Dear presents Darling with a gift of a Cocker Spaniel in the Disney animated feature “Lady and the Tramp”. My children and I recently got to see this again and expressed our own puppy love through a fun Frame Craft.
A new pet is always exciting and my kiddos have been getting to know my sister in law’s new fur baby.
Between seeing the “Lady and the Tramp” Blu-Ray Special Features with Walt Disney’s own experiences dogs as well as taking advantage of puppy kisses with an adorable German Shephard, well lets just say that we all have Puppy Fever now.
After exploring the Blu-ray, and revisiting a great film, it was really cool to see the relationship that Walt and his family had with dogs and interesting to see how those periods of time influenced the production of “Lady and the Tramp”.
Now I have been snapping photos of my Sister In Law’s Pup and after a great shot and some thought, my daughter and turned one of those adorable faces into a Puppy Frame Craft. Read on for our activity tutorial as well as details of what is included in the “Lady and the Tramp” Walt Disney Signature Collection Blu-Ray and Digital Release.
What you will need to recreate this Puppy Frame Craft:
Unfinished Wooden Plaque
(Thank you to Craft Project Ideas for the happy mail with a Heart Plague, Paint, and Gem Stickers. FYI, these items are available at Walmart)
To get started with the Puppy Frame Craft, first select a photo to use. I ended up ordering a few of the same just in case I cut it wrong.
My daughter then painted the frame and we allowed it to dry. This plaque could also be left unfinished.
Next, we determined where the photo would go and cut a heart shape from the construction paper.
I had to experiment with it to make sure it was large enough to cover the picture, and then cut the inside of the paper to create matting.
After that, we made cuts to the photo to fit the heart.
We then pasted both the picture and the construction paper to the Puppy Frame Craft.
It was then embellished with gems and left to set. FYI, we decided to leave the pup’s name off, but it could be added on with paint or a magic marker.
As you can see, this Puppy Frame Craft, turned out so cute and I can’t wait for my Sister In Law to see it.
