Father's Day Cards!

It always seems so hard for me to figure out presents for men: fathers, father-in-laws, grandpas, husbands, son-in-laws, etc.  Because, let's face it, I'm not a man and still don't really understand how they think and what they would really like.

Sooooo, the best option is a card!!!!!  I can't go wrong with a homemade card.  In fact, my dad loved my homemade cards (or at least he acted like he loved them!)  And the men in your life will love a homemade Father's Day card too!!!

This years Father's Day card is made with a regular sized (8.5" x 11") piece of paper.  I used scrapbook paper with a design on one side and white on the back.  First, cut 2 inches off the length so it measures 6.5" x 11".  Then, write your sweet Father's Day sentiments on the white side of the paper. Now it is ready to fold.  Here is a how to video I made to show you much better than I could type out . . .

You know how I have 5 daughters (no sons), so I conned one of my daughters into putting on a white shirt and the paper bow tie.  She was so sweet to model the tie for me!

I also made a tie out of fabric.  It only takes about 5 minutes to make this simple tie.

It attaches to the shirt with a bobby pin. Simple, huh!
