Why does Father’s Day always sneak up on me each year?  With 3 kids, I have a bunch of excuses (end of the school year, end of the school year, end of the school year) but no good reason.  Luckily, I was able to whip up a couple of these adorable quick Father’s Day cards and there’s still time for you to make one, too!

blue paper with diagonal cuts and measurements shown with red arrows.

I started with a piece of colored card stock paper and cut it in half.  Fold the piece in half to make a card.  Make diagonal cuts to form the shoulders.  My cuts were approximate, just use these measurements as guidelines.

Fold the second side down to complete the collar and use double-stick tape to hold the collar in place.

Add a coordinating tie (I just cut it out freehand) and I added a pocket that is about 1 1/4″ wide and 1 1/4 inch tall.

It’s a great card to make with the kiddos.

You can personalize your own card with different colors and patterns (how about a sport’s fan tie?)

  2. Adorable! I always struggle with paper folding, I think I have dodgey hands lol but youve made it pretty clear even for an origami dummy like me. Of course we dont do Fathers day until september here so I still have plenty of time to practice folding 🙂
