"Father's" Day

For several years now, my family has made Father's Day cards for our local spiritual fathers, our parish priests. These greetings come from a card pattern in which the front is a shirt and tie like this:

We use black construction paper and instead of folding each collar tab at an angle, we fold them straight toward the middle and glue a white tab of paper in between them. Then we glue black buttons down the center. Using a white piece of paper attached inside, we write our message.

As this Year of the Priest comes to a close, this project provides a nice way to let our priests know how much we appreciate all they do for us.

St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.


  1. Nice idea!! Do you have a picture of these cards you make?

  2. I don't have a picture presently, but when we make them this year (we better hurry up!), I will post a picture.
