DIY Father’s Day Card


  • Scrap Pieces of Construction Paper – blue, brown, green, and whatever color you want to make your fish.
  • White Cardstock Paper.
  • Scissors. 
  • Glue.
  • Marker.

This project is pretty easy, but younger ones may need help cutting everything.

Begin by folding the cardstock paper in half widthwise and then in half again lengthwise. This will be the actual card.

Next, cut two pieces of blue paper the width of the front of the card, but only about an inch high. Then, cut the top part in a wavy pattern. Set those aside.

Then, cut out the palm tree. We cut the trunk of the tree out of brown construction paper. And, we folded the dark green paper in half and cut out a wide “m” shape for the palm fronds. You can freehand cut these out, or you can sketch it out and then cut them. We freehand cut them and then trimmed it to fit on the card and look right.

Finally, we cut out small fish with scraps of light green paper. We used a pencil to draw a small fish and then cut around that to make our fish.

Now it’s time to assemble the card! Glue the tree trunk onto the front of the card. Then, glue the palm fronds onto the card.

After the tree is glued to the card, add the waves and fish.

Then, use a marker to add eyes and a mouth to the fish.

Finally, write Fishing You A Happy Father’s Day on the card.

That’s it, I hope you’re inspired to make a punny Father’s Day card for dad!
