Dad, You're Worth Every Penny Card

Dad, You're Worth Every Penny Card

Total Time 1 hour

by Amanda Formaro

After receiving this card decorated with pennies, Dad will be rich with gratitude and compliments for the person who made it for him. It's a perfect idea for a homemade Father's Day or birthday card.

What you'll need

  • 8"x10" piece of light cardboard (cereal box, etc)
  • 1 sheet green construction paper
  • 9 shiny pennies
  • Green fine point marker
  • Pencil with eraser
  • Blue fine tip marker
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Glue stick

Helpful Tip:

1. The pennies add quite a bit of weight to this card, so even card stock or poster board is not sturdy enough, be sure to use the cardboard or your card will not stand freely. 2. For a lightweight card, make photocopies of the pennies and cut them out and glue them on, instead of the real thing.

How to make it

step 1

1. Fold the green construction paper and cardboard in half like a greeting card. Place the cardboard on the inside of the green construction paper, lining up the fold lines. Use a glue stick to attach the cardboard to the construction paper.

step 2

2. Trim off the excess paper if needed.

step 3

3. Use pencil to lightly write "DAD" across the front of the card, leaving about 1.5" space underneath.

step 4

4. Use green fine point marker to draw dollar signs on "DAD" letters. Erase any pencil marks that might show through.

step 5

5. Use white craft glue to attach a penny to each corner of the D's, where the curve meets straight lines, and at the center of the curve. Glue a penny to the top of the letter A, and two at the bottom.

6. Write, "You're worth every penny!" underneath "DAD" with blue fine point marker.
