Cut out Father’s Day card

Have you crafted anything for Father’s Day? This year it falls upon June 15th and we’ve been busy making some little gifts.

Recently we received a small package of craft materials as we’re members of the Bostik Craft Club. One of the products was a Blu Tack blu stick which my 4 year old immediately claimed as his own. We were also given coloured tissue paper and card. He’s been badgering me for a while about using it so today we did and made a cut out Father’s Day card.

Materials you will need:
paper template
craft knife
self-healing cutting mat
Blu Tack blu stick
tissue paper

This craft required a little preparation. First I printed out the word ‘Daddy’ on a sheet of paper and cut the letters out with a craft knife. Then I cut a range of coloured tissue paper into small squares. I find getting everything ready makes it easier for my 4 year old to craft.
