Let’s be honest, Father’s Day does not get the same amount of attention as Mother’s Day. Historically, moms do so many things that go unnoticed and those things are celebrated on Mother’s Day, which makes the day a big deal. But times are changing (or have changed) and dads now do so much. So let’s step up our Father’s Day celebrations! What better way to do that than with a fun, easy project that caters to his sweet tooth?
- Mini Plastic Top Hats (hellooo, cute)
- Washi Tape (white is my favorite for this project)
- Cardstock (not pictured)
- Silhouette Cameo
- Father’s Day Silhouette Studio File
Step 1: Download and cut out this Father’s Day Silhouette Studio file that I made just for you! It contains tie clip art and a Happy Father’s Day message.
Step 2, 3 & 4: Attach your tie cut outs, black hats and Father’s Day message to toothpicks using white washi tape. It’s best to use two toothpicks for the Father’s Day message for stabilization.
Step 1 for the card: Make the card anyway you like. You can use the Father’s Day message as the focal point of the front. I just made the text ‘bold’ so it would look a bit different than the cupcake topper.
Step 2: Cut out a piece of cardstock that is a bit shorter than the width of your card and 1.5-2 inches tall (depending on your card height).
Step 3: Add double-sided tape to three sides of the card stock piece and press down on the inside of your card. This should create a slim pocket.
Step 4: Add this awesome bookmark that is perfect for Father’s Day! Just slide it onto the piece of card stock. Now you have a card/gift combo.
