Father’s day is coming soon and there’s a lot of special and unique stuff that you can do for your dad to celebrate his awesomeness. Kids, however, have limited resources to make a gift for their pops. A greeting card isn’t a bad alternative but in order to make it as special and unique as your father, you should follow these tips of mine in order to make a special card suited for father’s day.
- Make your own design – What better way to express your love for your old man than to make your own present for him? Add your own illustrations and drawings to make the card more personalized. It doesn’t have to be your typical square greeting card either! Cut out different shapes and sizes that you think your dad would love.
- Pick the right theme – Remember that it is a gift for father’s day and not thanksgiving! Add illustrations and designs that would look remind you of your dad or father’s day – footballs, neckties, cars, and briefcases! Sometimes, color schemes are also related to themes; like for example, green and red would always remind you of Christmas day, so don’t color your cards that way!
- Your own message – Don’t just look for a random father’s day quote in the internet to add to your card! Make your own message to your dad and tell him what you really think of him. Give him something to be proud of, or tell him how much you inspire him to do great at school. Remember that a father’s greatest treasure is his children, so don’t worry about whether he’ll like your message or not!
- Arts and Crafts – Don’t be afraid to use stationary kits to make your card look better. There are a lot of guides on YouTube on how to make arts and crafts to add to your greeting card! There are stamps, crafting papers, 3D designs, textured embellishments, and origami that you can use to improve your greeting card!
- Ask for Help – If you have brothers and sisters, who also want to give your dad a gift this father’s day, then you should collaborate with them. They may have great ideas that they can share to make a better greeting card. After all, two heads are better than one! If you also want to buy materials for your dad’s greeting card, then you should ask for your mom’s help as well. They’ll even help you with the dangerous and difficult stuff such as cutting the card or gluing together different pieces of papers neatly.
I hope this will help you make a great greeting card for your dad this coming Father’s day. Even if you didn’t end up making an awesome card, remember that the best gift that you can give to your pops is a kiss and three magic words: I love you! Good luck.
