  9. To make the neckties, cut out 3 small strips of craft paper.
  10. Cut the corners off the bottoms to create the points of the ties.
  11. Trim the sides at angles to make the tops thinner.
  12. Pinch the neckties onto the hanger so there's a small overhanging tab on the back of each one.

  14. Place a dot of glue on the inside of each tab, then squeeze and hold with your fingers to secure shut.
  15. Place a tiny dot of glue on the back of each tie, up by the hanger line, then glue to the middle of your card stock. Hold in place for 10 seconds.
  16. Lift the bottom of each necktie to add dimension to the card.
  17. Write your message to Dad below.
