2015 DIY Father’s Day Card


Here is a new Father’s Day I card made using our Father’s Day Sample Dot-to-Dot on the inside. This spinner card is fairly simple and uses every day craft items to create. I am grateful to Lawn Fawns Instructions for the card inspiration. Print-2015_fathers-day-cardYou can make your own using the artwork file on the right and the free puzzle as a extra card bonus for your Father.  I added a few choices so you may customize the card according to the recipients own interests.

Supplies I used:

  • 1 sheet of patterned cardstock for the card front
  • 1 sheet of lighter cardstock for the back of the spinner center
  • Clip art sheet with images printed on white cardstock
  • 1 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock for base
  • Greatest Dot-to-Dot Sample Newspaper Puzzle for Father’s Day
  • Two pennies
  • 4″ x 4″ piece of acetate




Tools I used:

Paper dimensions:

  • Cut 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock down to 6½” x 10″. Score cardstock in half to make card 5″ x 6½”.
  • Cut colored cardstock for front of card (top half) 5” x 6½”.


Color the fish and the bow tie.  I colored darker blue dots on the tie I made.  Also, I decided against using the top bow, it looked to girly after being assembled.

A look at the other alternatives to the card I chose to make.  I used a glue dot to attach the fish.

Don’t forget to cut out the puzzle and glue on the inside of the card.
