For this Fathers Day greeting card, we'll need the following:


- 1 pc 5x10 inch cardstock, folded at the center to form a 5x5 inch card
- 6 or 8 pcs paper strips in two patterns or colors, around 0.5x4 inches each. A double-sided paper will be great for this since colors will complement each other.
- 1 pc circle cutout for the ribbon's center
- double-sided adhesive tape
- glue gun and clear glue stick



- Using double-sided tape, adhere the ends of each paper strip together. Since you will be using two patterns or colors for this ribbon, make sure that you have each pattern or color in equal number. For example, if you have three strips of one color, you should also have three strips of the other color.

- Using hot glue, form the folded strips into a ribbon, alternating paper patterns or colors.

- On your circle cutout, write "#1" or "No.1" using a pen or marker of your choice. You can also choose to print this if you're not keen on writing it yourself. I took the liberty of making you a printable!

Right click on the image, click "Save image as", choose which folder you want it to be saved and save to your computer. To resize the image, you can insert it in a new Microsoft Word document and resize as desired.

- Glue the circle cutout to the center of the ribbon. You can use either double-sided tape or hot glue, whichever you're comfortable with.

- Add a sentiment. This one's optional. I handwrote "for the world's BEST Dad" for this one. I know my handwriting is not much to be proud of *LOL* but handwritten sentiments kind of make a card more personalized for me. But of course, if you don't want anything handwritten, here's another freebie for you to print!

Same process, folks: right click, save as, choose folder and save.

- Add in some fathers day greetings on the inside and you're done!
