  11. I L.O.V.E. this book! Thank you for sharing. I have a question, when I push the arrow on the bottom of each page, and download it-it prints out HUGE! Like it takes up the entire 8.5 x 11 paper! Is there something I am missing in order to make it print smaller-to fit the 4 x 6 photo book? Thanks!

  47. This is really cute, just found it on on Pintrest. Are you thinking of reposting it for 2013? If so could you add a few blank pages? Or some with titles like, Dad at Work. Dad at Play. Fun with Dad. Family Time. Just some ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Awesome Idea, I'm printing NOW!!! =)
    To Everyone asking about how to print as a 4x6 from home, just change the size of the paper from your printer options set to 4x6, 10x15cm.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thanks for sharing this cute printable! I love it. Would you mind sharing the font with me? I am going to make a few more pages to add to our book and would like them to match but I'm not sure what font you used? Thanks!

  52. Love this! I noticed that the self portrait page titled "Me and my Dad" is missing.
    Is there any way you could post this?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm a budding wannabe crafty mom and feel stupid for posting this, but I don't understand the cutting out if the pages of the photo album and then stapling them together. Does that, then, become the book? Why not just use the photo book as is?

    Thank you!!

  55. a very original idea for children to give Dad

    ReplyDelete
  56. The Pages that you're supposed to click an arrow on... they're not showing up. I've tried on several different days and they never load. Ugh, really LOVE this and want to print it. Help!

    ReplyDelete
  57. maybe its just me but the templates do not show up at all? is there a reason or something I can do?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi Ashley... not sure why it's doing that. I went and added a link to all of the downloads below each page. Hope that helps.

    ReplyDelete
  59. To the question about using the photo book as is: I haven't made this yet (plan to this weekend with the kids) but I am guessing the original maker wanted the cover she made to be the book cover as shown above. I would think you could use the photo book as is if you wished!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Thanks for sharing this great project! I will definitley have my kids make this for their dad. :)

  74. Hello! This is adorable! I am having the same issues as others where the image is printing the full paper size instead of 4x6. Any suggestion on how to get it to print would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thanks! Printing tip: I changed my settings to print at 100% scale instead of the 179% that came up on my print screen and it printed it 4 x 6 size.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Another Tip: when I go to print it gives the option of 8x10 or 4x6 and so on. This turned out perfect. Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Thank you so much for these downloads! Love the grandpa ones too!

  83. This is printing out larger than printer paper for me? What size are they supposed to be? So cute hope to make one !

    ReplyDelete

    1. They're sized at 4x6. Hopefully, you should be able to switch the paper size on your printer settings before printing.
