Dad's Day Card With A Helpful Tutorial From "Oh Joy"

Father's Day is almost here so now is the time to create your unique greeting card masterpiece that will let Dad know you care, you're crafty and thrifty too!  Which also means - in his mind - you can spend more on his special present or meal or tie.  Did I say that, really? Scratch that last idea. I meant to say PIE, that's right his favorite pie!  To prove I meant pie, I will post one of my father's favorite pie recipes.  It was always a big hit for him and our whole family!

Below is a colorful and fun You Tube video showing how to make a fold out "You're So RAD" card.  Why not change the "R" to a "D" and then you can have a "Wishing You a Very Happy... Dad's Day" card.  You can also carve out an " 's " that would be attached to the last "D."  It will work perfectly.  Trust me!  Or, you can keep it "Rad" and print Dad next to it.  You choose your favorite design, be creative!  Use his favorite colors, include a special memory, joke or a phrase that is known to the two of you and even a picture.  Have fun and and express your love for that special "Dad" in your life, then make his favorite pie or try mine, it is Soooooooo Good! Create some happy this Dad's Day! HSH
