Father's Day is the one day in the year when you can remind your dad that he is your hero, and that you love him to bits. This card is ideal for a father that loves doing woodwork and all kinds of handyman activities in and around the house. The project is masculine enough that a son can make the card for his dad to tell his dad how special he is, and how much he appreciates him.
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: one card
- printout of provided pattern sheet
- 8.6 x 6.3 inch piece cut from a 12" x 12" sand colored scrapbook cardstock
- 6.1 x 4.3 inch black sugar paper
- a piece cut from Kaisercraft Base Collection P1064 cork/wood scrapbook cardstock
- piece of aluminum foil
- small nail and portrait hook
- piece of string
- Artline 210 Fineliner black pen
- Elmer's Poster Tack
- pair of standard scissors
- quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
- Score the sand colored cardstock to create a card sized 6.3" x 4.3".
- With the fold at the left, centre and glue the black sugar paper to the front of the card.
- Cut the hammer's handle from the pattern sheet. Place it on the wooden side of the Kaisercraft cardstock, trace all around it with the pencil and cut out the handle. Cut the hammer head from the pattern sheet. Use a small piece of poster tack to secure the pattern to the foil. Carefully cut all around the pattern of the hammer head, and then remove the pattern, so that you will now be left with a hammer head made from foil. Glue the handle and head to the front of the card.
- Use the Artline pen to add detail to the hammer head.
- Write "Happy Father's Day" on the hammer's handle.
- Glue the nail, string, and portrait hook to the card.
- Cut two small strips of Kaisercraft cardstock, twist them around a pencil to make two wood shavings and glue them to the card to finish it off.
