How to make the DIY Father’s Day card
Step 1: Print out the free rocket template (find it at the end of the post).
Trace the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out. We used yellow for the rocket, orange for the circle windows and the triangles on the side of the rocket, red for the top triangle and white for the stars.
When tracing the rocket pattern onto the yellow cardstock paper, make sure to fold the yellow paper in half first and place the pattern next to the fold line.
Step 2: Glue the rocket in the middle of a black cardstock paper.
The red triangle goes on top of the rocket and the orange triangles on the side – one on each side of the rocket.
Add the three orange circle windows onto the yellow rocket.
Glue the white stars onto the black cardstock paper, one on each side of the rocket.
Step 3: Use the hole punch to make a few holes at the bottom of the rocket.
Thread the orange and red yarn through these holes. Tie them up and cut them all at the same length.
Step 4: Use a black marker to write “Dad, I love you to the moon and back ” inside the rocket.
