Road Map card

Our second cardmaking project in kids crafts for fathers day, is the Road Map card. Perfect for Dads who travel a lot!


You will need:

  • Thin yellow and blue card

  • White paper for the inside of the card

  • Fun foam car shape or sticker

  • Small section from an old road atlas or map

  • Pencil, ruler, scissors and glue or double-sided adhesive tape

  • Felt-tip pens

  • Envelope

Here's how to make this card:

  1. Fold a piece of yellow A4 card in half to form your basic greetings card.

  2. Cut a section from an old road map (that no-one needs any more!) approximately 11.5cm x 8.5cm and stick onto a 12cm x 9cm piece of pale blue card.

  3. With your blank greetings card horizontally in front of you, stick the mounted map onto the front of the card, over to one side (see picture).

  4. Take a large foam car shape and stick this onto a rectangle of blue card, slightly larger than the car itself, and then attach to the card alongside the map as shown, overlapping the map slightly.

  5. Cut a rectangle of blue card 11cm x 2.5cm to make a message banner. Add a message and stick the banner onto your card beneath your car and map design.

  6. Cut a white paper insert 28.5cm x 20cm, fold in half, attach to the inside of the card and add your message.

  7. You could also decorate the envelope with a smaller car shape and a small section of road map.

Helen's Top Tip:

You could really personalise this card for Dad by choosing a section of map showing one of his favourite places.


 

 

 

Sailing Boat Card

  • White paper for the inside of the card

  3. Now stick the layered card centrally onto the main card as seen in the picture, so that your card is in landscape format.

  4. Take an A5 sheet of light blue paper or thin card and tear a strip off one of the short sides to make the waves. Glue or tape onto the base of the yellow card section.

  5. Stick on a foam sailing boat shape or draw and cut your own design from paper or card.
