Tie Shaped Paper Gift Box Tutorial for Father’s Day!

 

Hi everyone! In my latest video tutorial, we’re creating a tie shaped box out of paper! Fill it with candy or small gifts and it makes a great DIY Father’s Day gift, but it would also work for other occasions like birthdays, of course!

 

Materials:

  • Card stock or other heavy weight paper
  • Score tool or a pen that doesn’t write
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil (if tracing around patterns)

3D Paper Trophy Treat Holder for Father’s Day!

 

Hi everyone! In my latest tutorial, we’re kicking off the Father’s Day crafts with this 3D paper trophy! Although this trophy is made of paper, it’s pretty sturdy and just the right size to hold small gifts or candy, or would even work as a gift on its own. I designed this with Father’s Day in mind, but it would of course work for other occasions, or even as a party favor.

This isn’t the quickest project, but the most time consuming part of this is just cutting out all the pieces. The bottom part of the trophy will require some small folds and careful glueing, but it’s definitely do-able.

Materials:

  • Card stock or other heavy paper – this is a project that won’t work too well with thin, regular paper, especially if you will be putting candy or a gift inside – it won’t be strong enough. Gold colored card stock works best! You’ll need two colors of paper.
  • Scoring tool – you’ll need some sort of tool to score the fold lines. I use a Cricut scoring stylus, but an old pen that doesn’t write will work also.
  • Hot glue – you can try other adhesives if you don’t have hot glue, but I always find that it works best because it sets so fast and strong, which is necessary for this project.
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler – to assist with scoring lines.

Golf Themed Pop-Up Card Tutorial

In this video tutorial, create a golf themed pop-up card!

 
This was created with Father’s Day in mind, but could of course be used for other occasions – just make a new cloud with your own message, instead of using the one that mentions Father’s Day.

 

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~45 minutes

Materials:

  • card stock, construction paper, or other heavier weight paper in multiple colors
  • scissors
  • glue
  • pencil
  • thin string or cord
  • pen or marker

 

Click here to view & print the patterns:

*I recommend using card stock or heavy weight paper for this card because it is a pop-up. Also, a glue stick or hot glue is best for this card – as you may have noticed, my card buckled because of the white glue.
