DIY: Father’s Day Card Part Two

June 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

Now that you’ve created your bow-tie, it’s time to make the card. So I purchased some greeting card/post card paper at an office supply store like six years ago that I’m still working through. You can use that, or you could use a heavy cardstock and just fold it really nicely. You’re just going to hot glue the bow-tie to the top of the card, or the middle, or wherever you want it to go.

(Or if you wanted to, you could print directly on the card and just hot glue the bow-tie after the fact.) But I chose to paint my message on the front. It was so fun and so easy! First, I began with a navy paint…

Then a turquoise highlighter. And finally a chartreuse highlighter.

You might want to make little tweaks here and there. And the final product ended up looking like this…

So to have dedicated time beforehand to specifically hand-make him something… he’s going to die. It’s the perfect gift for mine. Hope it helps with your Father’s Day gifting!
