Hallmark is one of my favorite stores to shop in. I love looking through the aisles for that special card for that special someone. For holidays and special events I find myself in there for hours at a time… don’t ask I just do. This year however I wanted the kids to do something a little different. When they were younger they loved to make homemade cards for my husband and I. This year I found the cutest idea and the kids and I thought that it would be perfect for Father’s Day this year. All you need is construction paper, crayons or colored pencils, glue a little imagination and a lotta love. The following directions when I first read it were somewhat confusing but thank goodness it had a video tutorial you could follow. (trust me this video is a lifesaver) I hope the picture tutorial below helps… 😉 Plus its a great way to get the kid to put their own decorative spin on the cards… 🙂
Use legal-size (8 1/2-by-14-inch) or letter size paper (8 -by decorative paper. 1. Place paper face down. Fold in half vertically; unfold. Line up left edge with center line fold, and crease; repeat with right edge. Unfold, and lay flat. 2. Fold top-left corner in to line up with outermost crease, forming a triangle; repeat on top-right corner. Using index fingers and thumbs, pinch together outside points of each triangle so they meet, and crease. 3. While still pinching triangles, fold down top edge (this will make sleeves). 4. Turn paper upside down, and flip it over. Fold down top edge 3/4 inch. 5. Flip paper over. Fold top left and right corners so tips meet at center line. 6. Tuck bottom edge under collar, and flatten by creasing. For the tie, cut out an 8-by-1/2-inch strip of decorative paper. Knot paper. Snip close to knot on one side; trim other to a point. Glue to shirt.
Enjoy and see you next time!
