DIY Father’s Day Card

Father’s Day is rapidly approaching. But, you still have a few days to find a gift for the man who has everything. I’m always confused about what to gift the men in my life. This year, I resolve to pick out the perfect gift and help you do the same.

This week, we will focus on all things male. The week-long series will include:

– Unusual gifts at every price range

– Yummy cookies that ship well

– Cute DIY gift for your favorite techie

The easiest way to personalize any gift is to make a card. It’s faster and cheaper than buying a card! This tissue paper card is super simple and uses items you probably already have sitting around!



2 sheets of cardstock (standard letter size)

Mod Podge (or clear scrapbook glue)

Tissue paper (various colors)


Patterned Scrapbook paper


Step 1: Cut tissue paper into small pieces. Set aside. Fold one piece of cardstock in half to make a card.

Step 2: Print out the word “Dad” or whatever you want on one piece of cardstock. The font I used here is Clementine Sketch (which is free). Make sure the font you use is large enough and blank in the center (does that make sense?), as seen above.

Step 3: Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge (or apply glue) over each letters. Stick on pieces of tissue paper (or have your kid do it! My 3 year old loved it). Do one letter at a time, as the Mod Podge dries quickly.

Step 4: After finishing all the letters, put another thin layer of Mod Podge (or glue) on top. Allow it to dry fully, about 30 minutes.

Step 5: Carefully cut out the letters. Trim the scrapbook paper to fit on the card.

Step 6: Glue the word onto the scrapbook paper. Then glue the scrapbook paper onto the card. Add a cute message and give to your favorite father!
