Happy Father's Day!

Father's_Day_Homemade_CardThere's till time to make dad a special gift for Father's Day!

One of my favorites is a homemade card made to look like a shirt and tie.

Materials Needed:

  • Decorative Scrapbook Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. First cut a 4 x 12 inch rectangle from a piece of decorative scrapbook paper and fold it in half to create a double-layer 4 x 6 inch rectangle.
  2. Form the collar by cutting 2 matching 1 inch long horizontal slits about 1 inch below the fold.
  3. Fold over the 2 flaps as shown, then glue them down with a 5-inch-long tie shape cut from another piece of decorative paper glued between them. Glue a pair of small buttons to the collar.
  4. Once the glue has dried, lift the bottom front of the card and write a Father's Day greeting inside.

A fun idea for the younger group is to make a card on computer, then inside print questions about dad and ask your little one to answer the questions, then fill in their answers.  Questions could be: "How old is Daddy?", "What does Daddy like to do on the weekends?", "How tall is Daddy?", "I know Daddy loves me because . . .".  The answers are sure to bring a smile and can be tucked away to look back on years from now.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
