If your dad or another male relative has a birthday coming up, he’ll love this cute card design by Kairen Varker from Handy Hippo. Find the step-by-step instructions for this project in issue 63 of PaperCrafter magazine, on sale 12th July!
• Fold and trim a white card blank to 9cm square. Cover the front with spotty patterned paper. Tape ribbon across and down corrugated card 5.5cm square and fix with sticky tabs.
• Glue a heart embellishment in each corner of the card and use a foam pad to fix a sentiment in the centre. Tie ribbon in a knot and glue at the top of the square.
• Trim a card blank to 11.5cm x 8cm. Cut three pieces of scrap card 5.5cm x 3.2cm and cover them with chequered paper. Cut a 'v' shape, 1.5cm deep, from the top, glueing a tie embellishment at the base of each (or make your own!)
• Cut collars from scrap white card and attach in position. Use 3D foam pads to fix a shirt and tie decoration to the centre front of the card blank., then stick the remaining two at an angle on either side.
• Why not make another shirt and tie decoration in the same way and use it as a matching gift tag?
• Draw simple car shape on orange card and cut it out. Use a cutting mat and craft knife to remove the windows. Use dotty paper to decorate the wheels and create lights and a steering wheel. Trim two pieces of white card and glue to the wheels, as shown.
• Secure a length of orange bobble chain to the card. Add a sentiment with 3D foam pads. Take a piece of acetate and trim it to fit behind the windows and secure in place.
• Fold and trim white card to make a greeting that's 12cm x 8cm. Draw a line across, 3.5cm from the bottom, then mark two triangles with 4cm bases in the centre and a half triangle either side. Trim to make the crown shape.
• Cover the bottom 3.5cm of the greeting with orange card. Fix harlequin paper to the top and trim to shape. Stick narrow double-sided tape along the bottom of this and the base of the blank, then add beading. Glue a sentiment in the centre with two stars. Fix more stars to the top of the crown.
