suit and tie father's day card

This project is intended for children age 3+. Use some basic crafting items to make dad a Father’s Day Card to remember this year! Personalize to reflect your dad’s personality!
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the patterns. Set aside for now.

Step 2

Bold a sheet of white construction paper in half, lengthwise, so you have a card base that measures 9" x 12".

Step 3

Decorate the card front with markers with icons such as pineapples (as shown).

Step 4

Trace the tie pattern onto a coordinating sheet of construction paper and cut out the shape.

Step 5

Glue the tie across the top edge of your card front.

Step 6

Fold another sheet of coordinating construction paper into a suit jacket but folding 1/3 of the left and right sides, lengthwise, towards the center. Fold the tops at an angle for the lapels and cut notches (as shown).

Step 7

Run glue across the bottom edge and fold the left panel towards the center. Hold the bottom in place for a few minutes so the glue can start to set.

Step 8

 Now, glue the bottom of the right panel over the left. Again, hold the bottom in place for a few minutes so the glue can start to set.

Step 9

Glue a button to the front of the top panel, near the bottom of the suit jacket (as shown). Let glue dry.

Step 10
Write a sentiment on the inside of the card then slide the folded card into the suit jacket-shaped pocket.
