Make Your Own iDad Father's Day Card

On a scale of 1-10, I'm giving Molly de Aguiar's iPad inspired, DIY Father's Day card project an "11". I especially like the idea of hiding messages or photo from the family under each app icon, imagining the industrious types could further customize a few of the apps specific to their father and/or family history and interests...

  • 2 pieces of 8-1/2 x 11-inch black card stock or construction paper
  • 1 piece of 8-1/2 x 11-inch white card stock or copy paper
  • iDad card template
  • iDad envelope template
  • Cutting mat
  • X-Acto knife
  • Scissors
  • Newspaper
  • Glue stick
  • Spray glue
  • Images of icons
  • Optional: Photos
  • Optional: Large envelope

Molly de Agiuar of Charlotte's Fancy was kind enough to upload templates for this project for anyone to copy, complete with an "iDad" envelope template as a final touch.

Oh, and this card doesn't require, but would be noticeably better, if the card was accompanied by an actual iPad or iPhone.
