As a kid, Father's Day was pretty easy. Some art project made dad happy and that was that. I can't really do that anymore...OR CAN I???
My dad can't stand it when I spend a lot of money on him, mainly because he wants that money to go towards his grandchildren. Oh, and forget about new technology. He just doesn't need it or want it. Since his main focus has been the house that he and my mom live in, I figure a Home Depot gift card is the best bet. He can always use one of those!
Now let's not get too shabby on the card. Why have a store bought card when I can personalize one for him?
In the spirit of crafting, here is my free template for the card. Your dad will love the fact that your spent so much time being so wonderfully thoughtful. Adding a gift card will make it that much sweeter. ;)
Good luck and have fun crafting!
Father's Day Gift Card Holder Tutorial
Step One: Print out template and choose paper of choice. The template will work for a 5x7 card or bigger. In my example, I used one 8.5x11 sheet of white cardstock and a small scrap of orange scrapbook paper.
Step Two: Cut out template shapes to use to cut out the paper of choice.
Step Three: Glue shapes onto the card, following the template placement.
Remember to not glue the top of the shirt pocket! That is the opening for the gift card.
Step Four: Embellish to your heart's content! I kept it simple by just drawing stiches onto the collar and pocket, and adding details to the buttons. Here's an idea: use actual buttons for the card instead!
Add the gift card and you're DUNZO! You're welcome, Dad!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
