Formal Greetings

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

Even if the dad in your house isn't a shirt-and-tie kind of guy, he's sure to love this stylish Father's Day card.


  • Decorative scrapbook paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors


Formal Greetings - Step 1

1. To make one, first cut a 4- by 12-inch rectangle from a piece of decorative scrapbook paper and fold it in half to create a double-layer 4- by 6-inch rectangle.

2. Form the collar by cutting 2 matching 1-inch-long horizontal slits about 1 inch below the fold.

3. Fold over the 2 flaps as shown, then glue them down with a 5-inch-long tie shape cut from another piece of decorative paper glued between them. Glue a pair of small buttons to the collar.

4. Once the glue has dried, lift the bottom front of the card and write a Father's Day greeting inside.
