If the dad in your life works at a computer, a great gift is a custom-made mouse pad. You know this gift will get a work out and every time dad is at work, pointing and clicking, he will also be thinking of you. Any image you can get into an electronic file you can get on a mouse pad but you will need some supplies for this project.
First, you will need a blank mouse pad. Most department stores have some sort of a computer section. Go to the computer section and find a mouse pad with nothing printed on it. If you can not find a blank mouse pad at a regular store you might be able to find one at a craft store.
You will also need iron-on transfer paper. This type of paper can be found at a craft store. Talk with the clerk to find the right kind of paper.
Now that you have the blank mousepad and the transfer paper you just need to use your computer to create an image for dad. You can use a program like paint or PhotoShop to get the image just right and then print it out onto the transfer paper. After the image is on the transfer paper, you just follow the instruction on the paper and iron the image onto the mouse pad.
