{Father’s Day Gift Card Holder}

This week I shared some super easy DIY Mason Jar Straw Lids and I recently just completed my Weekend Pergola Project!

Today I am going to share with you an awesomely simple Gift Card Holder that you can make for that special man in your life, perfect for Father’s Day! You could certainly also use this idea just for a man’s birthday too but since Father’s Day is right around the corner, I thought it would be perfect!

Fathers day Gift card holder

Supplies Needed:

A piece of double sided scrapbooking paper or 2 coordinating pieces
8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock in a neutral color. I used grey.
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Glue
3 Buttons
Sewing machine/thread (optional)

DIY Shirt Gift Card Holder

I started out by simply folding a piece of 8.5 x 11 sheet of card stock in half to make my card base (5.5 x 8.5). Next I took this great piece of double sided scrapbooking paper. If you have ever been over to my blog you might know that I LOVE multi-tasking tools and supplies! This one is just that. I found it in the open stacks at Jo-Ann’s. If you can’t find double sided…no worries, just use two coordinating pieces of your favorite prints!

Double Sided Scrapbooking paper

I measured a rectangle that was 1/2” inch shorter in dimensions of my card. So I cut a 5 x 8 rectangle. This will be my “shirt”

Next I cut a pocket large enough for the gift card to fit!

Pocket Piece

I have attached a FREE PDF Template for the pieces here so it will be easier to cut your own! No measuring so even your kids can do this part!

I decided to add a bit of stitching to make it resemble a real shirt. I just stitched my pocket into place leaving the top open to insert the card and I stitched down the long side to create the edge of the shirt where the buttons go. If you don’t want to sew it…no problem, just glue it and use a marker or pen and just draw some stitches in!

Next I folded over a triangle of the top right corner and glued it down to act as the collar of the shirt.

Finally glue three buttons down the right side and glue your “shirt” onto your card base making sure it’s centered on the cardstock. Write a little love note inside and you are all set! So much better than just giving a gift card right?

{Toddler Thank You Notes}

{Toddler Thank You Notes}

I come from a family of card givers.  My husband thinks it’s comical.  To me, there is nothing better than receiving a card or letter in the mail, call me old fashioned I guess.  I’m passing that card giving gene down to my little guy early, as he created his first thank you notes this past week.  So many people sent him gifts for Christmas, I wanted to send them a little thank you in return.

I can’t take credit for the idea, as I randomly saw it on Pinterest, yet sadly neglected to pin it, so I’m not sure of the source.  Do you ever do that?  I swear, it’s been happening to me more and more…

These are so easy to make and could easily be a Valentine card this year instead of a thank you.

Thank You Notes

To make a Toddler Thank You Card, you’ll need…

blank cards/matching envelopes

heart punch

crayons

black fine tip Sharpie

washi tape

Materials

I chose a square card and envelope set from Michael’s {take your coupons people}!

envelopes.washi tape

And I’ve slowly accumulated some cute washi tape over the past year that I’ve yet to really use.

To get started, I made sure Jackson was well fed and happy, so he’d be in the mood to do some coloring for a few minutes.  No one likes to try to get a hungry, grumpy toddler to do something!  While he ate, I punched the hearts in the front of each card.  I didn’t really care about the exact placement.  Some are in the middle, some are in the corner.  Do whatever you like best!

I then sat him in his high chair, gave him some crayons, and let him create his masterpieces.

He is currently ambidextrous.  Impressive, huh?!

Overall he colored 8 cards and it took two sittings.  About halfway through the cards he decided to throw the crayons at our dogs, so I knew he needed a break.  Soon he had some pretty good little works of art if I do say so myself.  Keep in mind, he’s 18 months old.

Toddler Thank You Notes

I added the saying on the front…”My art is yours” and wrote out his thank you inside each card.  To make the cards pop a bit more I also added a few pieces of washi tape to the front and as an envelope seal for fun.

I just love them and think they are so cute.
