Ideas For Homemade Father’s Day Cards

handmade idea fathers day cardStore-bought Father’s Day cards always seem to look the same: golf clubs, fishing rods, and tools. But your dad is special, and on Father’s Day he deserves a handmade Father’s Day card that really captures your special bond.

Maybe you have a favorite board game you like to play together, or you enjoy the same sport (maybe that sport is golf!). Whatever it is, using these details to create a homemade Father’s Day card (or even Father’s Day cards for grandpa or uncle) will make a memorable gift. After all, handmade gifts always come straight from the heart, so why settle for anything less for your dad? Here are some card crafting tips and ideas for all ages:

Choose a unique Father’s Day card theme.

Think about what you really want to say, and how you want to make your dad (or grandpa, or uncle) feel. Maybe you want to remind him of your favorite day together when you were a kid, or express all the reasons he has helped you as you’ve grown. Some possible themes could be:

  • Happy fathers day superhero card theme ideaSkiing
  • Hiking
  • Watersports
  • Road trips
  • Movies
  • Books
  • Travel
  • Historic events
  • Your favorite place
  • Camping
  • Music and instruments
  • Superhero
  • Dad-to-be theme

The possibilities don’t stop there! Any theme that comes from your heart will speak volumes. Plus, choosing an original theme will make choosing colors, folds and embellishments much more focused.

Opt for a unique fold.

While it’s easy to fold a piece of construction paper in half and call it a card, there are so many unique and interesting ways to set up your card. For example, you can cut it in the shape of something relevant to your relationship, like a football, a video game console, or something from his favorite movie.

Get To Decorating Your Homemade Father’s Day Card!

This is the best part, so get out your crafting supplies: tissue paper, craft paper, ribbon, embellishments, glitter … whatever you think will make your Father’s Day card one-of-a-kind!

Tip: We suggest adding interactive elements to your card.

  • Make a pocket for a gift card.
  • Add extra pages for a longer message.
  • Create a pop-up scene that matches your theme, like splashing water and a boat, or a skier jumping toward him when he opens it! You will just need a little more time and construction paper for this idea.

Don’t Forget The Final Touches!

Write a poem, draw a picture, and add a gift card or candy. A little something extra always makes a card feel that much more thoughtful.

Tips For Helping Young Kids Make A Father’s Day Card:

  • If you’re helping a child create a card, ask them what they love about their dad to get an idea established.
  • Cut the shape of the card out for them. If they are old enough to use scissors, trace the shape so they can use it as a guide.
  • Help them choose the right adhesives (tape, liquid glue, or glue stick).

Now your card is ready to sign!
