Directions for DIY Father’s Day Card

Start by tracing your hand on the paper using a pencil. Use the scissors to cut out the shape. Do this for the second sheet of paper as well.

Use a marker to write “I love you” on one of the paper hands in pencil. Then, trace the text with marker and erase any stray pencil lines.

Once you have your hand shapes prepared, it’s time to create the inside of the card. First, cut a long strip out of the third sheet of paper. Then, fold the strip accordion style. Use a thick marker to write the words “This Much” on the accordion-folded strip.

Using glue or tape, add the adhesive to each end of the accordion strip. Attach the hands to the strip, making sure both hands are facing the same way.
