This cute Father’s Day card idea from Highlights magazine was the perfect craft for Travis to make this year… because daddy can really rock a bow tie!
To start, we measured out a long rectangle that was 11 inches long x 2 inches wide. Travis proudly followed along the line to cut this out, needing no help from me.
We cut a second rectangle that was 5 inches x 1 inch.
Fold the large triangle in half, and open back up. Now fold the ends of that rectangle in to the center crease and secure with tape.
Cut each side into a trapezoid shape; now it looks like a bow tie!
Wrap the small rectangle around the center and tape down.
Kids can now decorate the tie with markers. Because Daddy loves orange, Travis proudly added orange marker atop orange paper.
Your kids may want to add polka dots, stripes, or other common bow-tie designs.
I cut a final piece of cardstock into the shape of a gift tag and added a happy father’s day message. Loop through the bow tie with a piece of string.
When Father’s Day is over, this card does double-duty as a bookmark! Need more ideas this Father’s Day? Check out a few photo gift options here.
