No-Tape, Folding Craft Stick Card

No Tape, Folding Craft Stick Father's Day Card Project for Children.

Have your children use fluorescent fabric markers to make Father's Day Cards that will brighten their dad's day!

What you will need:

Ribbon or Yarn

Scissors

Cardstock Paper - 90 lb.

Aleene's Tacky Glue

X-Acto Knife or Box Cutters

Uchida 530-6C Marvy Brush Tip Fluorescent Color Fabric Marker Set

(These markers are designed for fabric, but they work great on paper. The flourescent colors are brighter than highlighter markers and the tips are much softer.)

Jumbo Craft Sticks or Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks

 

How to Make the No-tape, Folding Craft Stick Cards:

1. Before class prepare the folding craft stick cards. If you are using the jumbo craft sticks, cut the cardstock into 5" squares. If you are using mini-jumbo craft sticks, cut the cardstock into 4" squares.

What I Love About You Printable

You can use the free printable patterns for this craft, blank patterns or ones with lines and the title:

Free Pattern

2. Line up seven jumbo crafts sticks or mini-jumbo craft sticks one on top of the other.

3. Spread glue on the back of a cardstock square and stick it to the middle of the craft sticks pressing down and out from the middle of the paper.

4. Turn the craft sticks over and glue another piece of cardstock to the back.

5. Let the glue dry completely. This could take up to an hour. When the glue is completely dry use an Exacto knife or box cutter to cut the paper. On one side carefully cut the paper in the space between the first and second craft stick.

Do not cut all the way through to the paper on the other side. Skip the next space and cut the space between the third and fourth craft sticks. Skip the next space and the top paper between the fifth and sixth craft sticks.

6. Turn the card over and cut the paper in the space between the second and third craft sticks, the fourth and fifth, and the sixth and seventh.

7. Carefully fold up the craft sticks.

8. In class have your children decorate their folding cards.

"Dad, I Would Roll out the Red Carpet for You Any Day" Folding Craft Stick Card Father's Day Craft for Kids

Dad, I'd roll out the red carpet for you any day! folding craft stick father's Day Card from www.daniellesplace.com

To make this unique father's day card craft sticks are taped together so that the craft sticks can be folded out to form a canvas "red carpet" and folded up to form a compact stack of sticks.

What you will need:

Woodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks -4.5" 50/Pkg

Use good quality craft sticks that lay flat. The 5/8" work perfect with the one-inch tape.

*You can use the Woodsies Jumbo Craft Sticks with the 1.5 Inch - 3M Scotch Masking Tape for a bigger Canvas.

3M Scotch Masking Tape, 1-Inch

Other brands will work, but this tape works great! It is the exact color of the craft sticks. (Staple's Tape works better with the washable markers, but it is lighter than the stick and more transparent and doesn't cover the stick as well.)

Permanent Markers, red acrylic paint

Glitter glue

Red Ribbon - 1/4"

Glue Gun

 

How to Make the Folding Craft Stick Canvas:

1. If you are using the mini-jumbo craft sticks, cut the one-inch masking into 4-inch pieces.

2. Place two sticks together, side by side, long ways, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape.

3. Turn the two sticks over so that they are diagonal to you.

4. Place another craft stick next to and below the two sticks that you taped together. Use another piece of tape to tape the bottom two sticks together.

Folding Craft Stick Diagram

5. Turn all three sticks over diagonally and place another stick at the bottom of the row and tape the last two sticks together. Keep going until you have a whole row of sticks.

6. You can also cover the first and last stick in the row by placing tape over the stick and then folding it back over the stick. It is easier to write on the tape than the craft stick. The ink soaks into the sticks and blurs.

7. Paint the sticks red leaving the tips of the craft sticks unpainted. When the acrylic paint is dry use a black marker to write the words.

8. Use glitter glue to outline the "red carpet."

9. Glue a ribbon on the top of the row of craft sticks.

2. Place two sticks together, side by side, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape.
