DAD or PAPA Card

Materials Required
  • A piece of Card Paper
  • 3 Photos
  • Crayons or Paint
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Take a piece of card paper (paper used for making cards), preferably in light colors like pale yellow, pale green or light orange.
  • Next, fold the paper exactly into half and write the word 'DAD' or 'PAPA' on it. The letters should be written in such a way that the middle of D, P and A's are big enough.
  • Now, cut the insides of the alphabets and stick photographs of you and your siblings on it. Use a good quality adhesive to paste the photos.
  • Paint the alphabets in bright colors to make them stand out in the card. Scribble loving messages for dad on the inside of this card.
Necktie Card

Materials Required
  • An Old Tie
  • A few Small White Buttons
  • A piece of Card Paper
  • Crayons or Paint
  • Scissors
  • Ruler/ Yardstick
  • Glue
  • First, place the card paper on a flat surface and carefully cut the top of the paper into a 'M' shape so that it looks like two pointed peaks.
  • Next, with the help of a rule, draw a straight line down the center of the card.
  • Glue the buttons on the right side of this line.
  • Now, cut the lower part of the tie and place it in the middle of the card. Make sure that you fix only the top of the tie to the card, leaving the bottom part of the tie free to move.
  • Finally, fold down the pointed areas on top towards the front of the card. They will now give the impression of collar flaps.
  • Paste these flaps to the card and glue a button on each collar.
  • Now, cut a rectangular piece of paper and glue it to the shirt, to look like a pocket. The pocket should be of the same color as the shirt.
  • Make sure you glue the pocket only on three sides. Slip a paper hanky into the pocket.
  • Write some cute Fathers Day messages on this hanky and present it to dad.
