How to make a Father’s Day card with a difference
There really is nothing like a home-made card from your child is there?
And when it’s a card for an occasion like Father’s Day, it’s somehow even more special!
Our 7 year old has got all creative and turned her Father’s Day card into a book-card. A different take on the traditional card but if she’s happy, I’m happy!…
It will be kept as a treasured memory for years. Want to make one too? Here’s what you need and how to make it:
You will need
A piece of thin but sturdy cardboard about A3 size will do it
Around 6 pieces of paper around A4 size in a colour of your choice (white is okay though)
Stickers, coloured pens, paint, basically anything crafty you can lay your hands on
And oodles of imagination!
Here’s how you do it
Create the book ~ make up a story to include Dad’s favourite things. It can be funny or sentimental or both! Even better if your child thinks of it themselves. Our daughter decided to draw squiggly lines to represent lines of text for some of her book.
Decorate one side of the cardboard ~ Consider that there should be a front and back for the ‘book’ cover. It may help to fold it in half before your child starts.
Put it together ~ When all the pieces have been decorated, you’re ready to put it together. Fold the paper in half and insert into the folded cardboard. Firmly staple the spine of the ‘book’, making sure the staples are close enough to the spine to enable the book to be opened.
And there you have it… a home-made Father’s Day book-card!
