Scrapbook a Father’s Day Card

Mother’s Day has passed, and that means that Father’s Day is just around the corner. You can use up some of your leftover scrapping supplies to make a one-of-a-kind card for that special dad. Grab a sheet of scrapbook paper and get going!

If you want to include a picture on there, try to find something that includes the dad with his kids. That way, he’ll be able to display the card on the mantle or his desk at work. It’ll kind of pull double-duty as a card and picture frame! Just stick it on there with some of your leftover glue dots.

Once you’ve made the card, you’ll need a nice Father’s Day quote.

Here are some of our favorites:

  • “A father carries pictures where his money used to be.” -Anonymous
  • “It is a wise father that knows his own child.” -William Shakespeare
  • “One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.” -English proverb
  • “I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” -Sigmund Freud
  • “Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!” -Lydia M. Child

Celebrate Your Mom!

Whether you’re a boy or girl, everyone loves their mom. Who do most sports stars say “Hi!” to when they win a big game – Mom! So it shouldn’t be hard to think of the best person to celebrate with a Scrapbook!

Moms are the people who take care of your every need. While Dad’s tend to take care of teaching their children how to ride bicycles and fix things around the house, Moms are busy with making the most of tender moments. They kiss boo-boos away, make chicken soup when you’re sick, and send the care packages when you’re away at college.

Simple ways to show your thanks are just by making sure you tell them how important they are. Thank Mom for everything she does for you, and be sure to thank her for just being a good mom. She’ll appreciate it! Little things like helping out around the house without being asked really do make all the difference to the hard, often overlooked, work of a Mom!

One great gift to give your mom is a Scrapbook celebrating her as an important influence in your life. You should include photos from great times in yours and her life, and any awards or noteworthy newspaper articles credited to them. This is a very easy task to complete once you gather enough materials. And it helps you organize all those odds and ends into something beautiful!

Start now and you can easily have your scrapbook completed by Mother’s Day!
