Forgot Father’s Day? I’ve got you covered.
Since Father’s Day is tomorrow, I imagine there are a few of you that haven’t had a chance to pick up the perfect card – or worse, the right gift! – for dad. This year has gone by so quickly, I feel like every occasion has snuck up on us a bit. And my job is literally to celebrate! In an effort to make life a little easier, I created a printable card that doubles as an easy last minute gift idea that you can give to dad!
While this DIY comes with a fun greeting, care of years of sibling rivalry over who is the favourite in our family, you could just as easily replicate the design and create your own message.
The best part is that today’s printable is technically a two in one! Not only can you use the “Suck Up” printable as a card, but the Happy Father’s Day template is the perfect fit for a gift card wrapper.
I’ve probably talked before about how gift cards can be a savior when it comes to gift giving at the last minute. They’re super easy to dress up so that they still seem thoughtful, they eliminate the tedious process of brainstorming the perfect gift for the person who really “has it all”, and you can find them anywhere. I’m not saying that you last minute gifters are off the hook. BUT, if you happen to forget a gift for your coworker on the way to the office, or in this case maybe for dad the day before Father’s Day, you can still make something cute with only a little bit of pre-planning and a trip to the gas station.
To make today’s card, simply print out the Suck Up + Gift Card printable template onto thick paper and cut out both pieces. You can cut small slits in two of the corners where the gift card will fit inside the card so that it doesn’t slide around. A small semi-circle cut at the bottom will allow you to “close” the card for added security too. Once you have your gift card, wrap the Happy Father’s Day gift card wrapper around the edges. Adhere with tape on the back and slip into the corner slices you made.
As I mentioned before, you can easily customize this idea on your own as well. Use construction paper instead of the Suck Up card and fold your own card, where you can customize the greeting. Alternatively, you can experiment with the writing on the template. Try colouring it in (if you have more patience than me…) or leave just the outline for a simple look.
That’s all! A few simple steps and you have a personal card AND gift idea that will be dad super happy tomorrow.
Happy Father’s Day!
