As your daughter decides how she wants to commemorate and celebrate Dad's special day, why not suggest a fun homemade Father's Day card that she can personalize to her heart's content? With the rise in the use of picture taking, scrapbooking, and crafty pursuits to lend a newfound homemade touch to over commercialized holidays, working together with your daughter to create a homemade Father's Day card she can give to Dad with pride.
To begin, cut out a piece of paper from the white construction paper that is eight inches by five inches. This will make the "shirt". Next cut out two squares that are two inches wide by two inches long from the white construction paper. These will make the "necktie". Colored paper can also be used as desired. Fold the smaller squares together to make triangles, then unfold them again. Glue the triangles onto the back of the "shirt" piece of paper so that the crease is exactly aligned with the top of the paper, leaving twin triangles showing above the edges of the shirt. Next, cut a square two inches by two inches and fold it in half to make the "knot" in the tie. Then cut a rectangle that is seven inches long by three inches wide and make four cuts, to make a point at the bottom and a narrowing up towards the top into the "tie". Glue the "tie" onto the shirt, and then glue the "knot" above it. Finally, write a personalized message on the front, and on the back, affix a photo of your daughter and her dad saying "Happy Father's Day!"
