CARDS FOR TEACHERS AND DADS

Wow its almost June! today I am sharing Father’s Day Cards & End Of Year Teacher Cards, before I know it I’ll be sharing Halloween and Christmas cards!

As far back as I can remember I, and my children have made some sort of school craft for dad that involved ties, these cards are inspired by those simple times.

Hubz will actually be getting this card from me this year!, it was made with yellow craft paper to resemble beer.

 It can easily be done in brown for a chocolate milk shake, cola, or root beer, if dad loves a different soda or shake just use that colour for the foam.

Simply use paper of your choice, using the parts template trace, cut out, and glue stick it onto the card.

 

My end of the year teacher gifts have come to an end! the youngest is high school aged and the other 3 adults!, I never use to be shocked by claiming my little ones as my own as a very young mom but somehow in my early 40’s admitting I have 3 adult children stops me dead in my tracks every time!

My nieces are still very much school aged, in fact only one is barley in High School, so I will pass these along for their teachers.

 

Speaking of my nieces, my sister in law, like I often did and am sure many parents do as well, gifts coffee gift cards at the end of the year, this card is inspired by that.

Not all teachers drink coffee, if I was a teacher I’d be in that category, in fact I have not consumed caffeine in over 17 years! I saw this saying on some end of the year gifts on Pinterest and so this card is inspired by them, and for a gift card for something other than coffee, a basket of juices and soda with this card would be cute as well.

Simply use paper of your choice, using the parts template trace, cut out, and glue stick it onto the card.

 

The following cards were made with crochet hearts and flowers I have stock piled, anytime I have ends of yarn balls I will work these up to use on crafts and cards.

You can find the pattern for both HERE

If you don’t crochet and/or the kids want to help make the cards, simply cut out hearts and flowers to fit from paper of choice, or have the kids colour some for them.
