Store bought cards are an easy solution to just about every holiday or special event, including Father’s Day. But, why not make your own? You never know, Dad just may appreciate it more than just the run-of-the-mill stationary card. Plus, it’s a great way to get the kids involved to add their own personal touches.

The three easy tips to making an unforgettable Father’s Day card are simple. All you need are:

1. Creativity. If you’re not much of a crafter, you can check out Pinterest for ideas.
2. Supplies. Craft stores have tons of items to choose from. You can also purchase supplies online.
3. A little time. 15 minutes is all it takes, once you gather everything you need.

My daughter and I took a trip to the dollar store and purchased a few items to make a Father’s Day card. We spent five bucks in total. I know your probably thinking that we could have just bought a card for equal or lesser value. However, I’ve always believed that when you give someone something you’ve made yourself, you give that person a part of yourself. And that, my dear, is priceless. Check out how she did. Maybe your kids will find it helpful.
