I am the least artistic person going, I have no creative flar and I'm clumsy. That said, I'd really like to give my father a card from dd on fathers day as well as a card for myself. I'd like to make the card from dd, as you see very few in shops reading "to granddad on Fathers Day" etc
I don't even know where to start though but I just know I want it to look nice... please help me.
cut out a card in the shape of a beer glass, let dd paint it brown (or black if he likes guinness) then stick cotton wool at the top. voila. my mum made these cards every year for the 15 years she worked at a nursery and now my dad gets one nearly every birthday and fathers day off my kids!
Oh dear, I think I'm an idiot in a far worse position, can't even remember when it's father's day...
Choose one of the many drawings children bring from school and use it to do a collage in the card. A crayola scrible would look very nice if cu in the shape of a heart or even in the silouette of an adult holding the hand of a kid. Just stick it down on the front of a folded white card and write inside. HTH
DSs did handprint ones once and we stuck gooly eyes on them and drew a smile so that the fingers were sticky up hair and the thumb was, er, a thumb sticking out of the side of the head?? Actually I think the handprint was done with closed fingers so the thumb didn't stick out iyswim.
