Gift a Card for Father’s Day

June 7th, 2013 | Crafts, Made with Paper, Seasonal

This unique card holds 6 gift cards for Father's Day that he can use to do stuff with the kiddos when Mom is busy! Ice cream shop, movies, bowling, fast food, itunes, zoo etc.

Every year I rack my brain for a unique Father’s Day gift to give my husband .  It usually ends in something last minute and not very thoughtful.  I came up with the ‘gift a card’ idea because my husband always has the kids on the weekends in the summer (while I’m busy catering) and is looking for things to do. The card has a pocket for 6 gift cards, for places and things they can do together.

Ice cream shop, movies, bowling, fast food, itunes, zoo etc. Creating the pocket card was super easy! I used May Arts ribbons, Core’dinations 6×6 vintage paper, and Stampendous chunky glass glitter. To create the card holder cut a strip of paper 4 1/2″ wide and 12″ long. Scor lines at 1-1/2″, 4″, 6″, 9″, and 11″. Accordion fold the strip. Adhere to the cardstock on the shortest fold, and sew edges to complete the pocket. Embellish as desired with Authentique Strong collection, ribbons, and glitter.

A few ideas of gift cards to include are- zoo pass, ice cream shop, fast food, play park, movies, water park, toy store, bulk food store, itunes, sports game, mini golf, (the liquor store is for when Daddy needs a little R&R after being with the kiddos all weekend!)
