Father's Day Craft
Father's Day this year is on June 17,2012. Plenty of time to make a special gift for Dad to cherish.
Here's an easy craft that you can make in half an hour or less (if you have all the materials on hand).
What you need:
acrylic sheet (recycled from used packaging of gadgets and such)
cardboard with white side
thin point permanent pen
design (you may download the ones here)
1. Decide on how big you want your coaster to be. We like the size 4" x 4". Make a design which fits into this size. You can make a collage or letter or picture of dad or you may download and print out our designs here instead (see below). Just right click on the picture and save in your computer. Print out and you may also sign it somewhere to personalize.
For rock star dads, here's a grungy type design -
Or for a courageous Dad
2. Using the permanent pen and ruler, mark the corkboard with a 4" x 4" square. Next use a pencil to mark out the same measurements for the acrylic sheet and the cardboard. We like cutting near the edge so you can use the scraps for other projects!
3. Spread a thin layer of glue on the cardboard (white side up) and also on the bottom side of the Dad design sheet. Glue to each other and then glue both of this onto the cut corkboard squarely and neatly.
Note: The cardboard is so that the brownness of the cork won't seep through to the Dad design since you're using a thin paper sheet. If you printed the design on some hard light colored paper, then possibly you can do away with the cardboard.
4. Glue the acrylic sheet on top to seal it from dust and moisture, otherwise it will have liquid stains whenever Dad uses it (uggh).
