Still haven’t gotten around to making those Father’s Day cards yet? You still have time! These were so quick and easy I made them in about 1 ½ hrs and with things I just had laying around in my studio. In fact, I made them so fast that I forgot to take pictures as I went. But no worries, my step-by-step instructions (after the jump) are super easy to follow.
|I blurred this one because I didn’t want to give away the surprise 🙂 .. but I wanted you to see the post-card style I did on the back.|
- Modge Podge (I used the fabric kind which works quite nicely.. but if regular is all you have that would work fine too)
- Paper Scissors or Exacto
- Black fabric scraps
- Parchment Paper
- Fabric chalk
- Rubber Stamps & Ink (optional)
- Corner rounder (optional)
- Ink Pen
- Heavy cardstock
- Print out my goatee image below (or draw your own mustache according to your dads face..or your grandpa’s!) and cut it out.
- Iron your fabric and lay it flat over a piece of parchment paper big enough to have at least a 3″ wide space around all size of the fabric.
- Brush fabric generously with Modge Podge until total surface is covered and saturated.
- Leave to dry.
- While fabric is drying, cut out your card stock. (Mine are postcard style 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 – I got 4 from each sheet of paper, you could also do them foldy-card style)
- If desired, draw “postcard lines” on one side of card using ruler and ink pen/marker. I just eyeballed this step, trying to stay consistent with each card.
- I also used the drying time to go ahead and write messages & addresses on each card.
- Cut corners with corner rounder (if desired)
- Once fabric is dry, peel off parchment paper & trace goatee stencil on back. Trace as many as you need with fabric chalk.
- Cut out with fabric scissors.
- Coat back of facial hair with Modge podge and stick onto card while still wet.
- Let dry.
- Pass out to all the great fathers in your life!
Now go show those Dads some love!
