How to Make – Aeroplane Dad Card
Take a 5″x7″ card blank and draw a free-hand border using black fine-liner. Punch out the word DAD using your mini alphabet punch or you can also cut them out with scissors.
Use foam tape to stick down the cut out dad letters in a diagonal row. Cut four paper aeroplanes out of the patterned paper in the pad and stick to the card with more foam tape.
How to Make – Relax It’s Your Day Card
Cut a piece of the gorgeous triangle card with gem effect detail to 14.5 x 14.5 cms and stick to the centre of a 6″x6″ Kraft card blank using foam tape.
Take one of the record designs from the paper pad and cut into 4, stick them onto each corner using foam tape. Add your sentiment using adhesive alphabet stickers.
How to Make – Favourite Things Bunting Card
Cut a piece of green card to 11.5 x 17 cms and stick to a white 5″x7″ card blank using double-sided tape. Add two lengths of twine to the top and middle of the card, let the ends stick over the sides of the card slightly.
Cut out some icons from the papers including the t-shirts, beer bottles, watches and records, stick along the twine with double-sided tape. Finish with a Dad sentiment in the bottom right corner.
