The greatest gifts in life cannot be bought, and with Father’s Day this weekend, there is no better time to get the kids together to make Dad a little something special this holiday weekend. This craft from www.familyfun.com is a cute little idea to help Dad remember all those important events coming up by writing them down in his handmade notepad.
Three sheets of plain letter-sized paper
Stick from tree
Cut three sheets of plain letter-size paper in half lengthwise. Fold the two sets of three
sheets in half. Working on one set at a time, punch two holes 3/4-inch in from the fold and the side.
Cut two pieces of thin cardboard the same size as the folded white paper, then trim about 1/8-inch from the short ends. Cut a 4 1/4- by 11-inch piece from a brown paper bag, then use glue stick to adhere it to the two cardboard pieces, leaving a small gap between them, as shown. Punch four holes 3/4-inch in from the gap and the side.
Fold the brown paper cover around the two sets of white paper. Feed a loop of a 3 1/2-inch rubber band through each hole, and slide a small stick through the loops. Attach newspaper letters to the cover with glue stick.
