The Dad Card Stand Kit is a fantastic way to create something handmade to give to your Dad on Fathers Day. Because it is handmade, you can exercise your own creativity, which will show Dad just how much you care. In this step by step we will show you how to create a beautiful gift for your father using basic scrapbooking techniques.
We are going to start by covering the wooden card stand. Remember to do one side at a time. Stick double sided tape around the border of the wooden card stand and then stick it down onto your paper.
Now we are going to cut it out – so cut along the edges with the craft knife, like you are tracing it.
Tip: If the edges are a bit rough after cutting it out, then sand the edges lightly – this will smoothen the edges.
Now take the other 12 inch X 12 inch patterned paper and cut a piece measuring 16cm X 10cm. Once you have cut out this block you can put a brad in each corner. (A brad is like a split pin, push it through the paper and flatten at the back.)
Once you have put the brads through each corner you are then going to stick this block in the middle of the card.
Now stick down your 2 metal frames.
Now cut your paper border in half, and then the half in half again. I stuck the 1 border on the left side underneath the frame, and on the right side above the frame.
Then stick a metal flower on each end of the borders.
Optional – you can stick words in the borders like love or joy etc.
Now cut out another block measuring 6cm x 10.5cm and stick your other half of the border on top of this block - then stick it down to the card stand on the left side.
Then use lettering and stick down the word DAD on the left side.
Now stick your 10X15cm photo in the centre and stick a piece of ribbon on the right side. I used metal photo corners on my photo, but you can make your own photo corners or use brads.
I then used 2 metal washers on the top and bottom of the ribbon to decorate. Use a medium circle punch and punch out two circles. Then glue your washers in the centre of the circles and let it dry. (so you are going to have a thin paper border on the outside of the metal washer). Then push through brads in the middle of the circle and stick down to the top and bottom of ribbon.
