A Fathers Day card Dad will wear with pride, not just put on the shelf (although there’s an option for doing that too!).

Either way, this personalised set of medals is a great way to celebrate your Dad’s best qualities… you know, like Groovy Mover, Brilliant BBQer, Coolest Coach etc.

How to make a DIY 'My Hero' Father's Day card medal set: Step 1-3

Step 1: Print out the medals and ribbon artwork onto two sheets of A4 paper or card.

Step 2: Colour in the ribbons and then cut along the solid line that surrounds all six ribbons.

Step 3: Choose six medals that best describe your Dad’s unique qualities, or use the blank medals to draw your own fun ‘character traits’. Colour them in and cut them out.

Step 5: Fold an A4 sheet of paper or card (210gsm) in half to form the greeting card.

Step 6: Next, fold the top of the ribbons over, along the dotted line, and attach to the front of the card using a safety pin.

Step 7: Write a fun headline on the front of the card… something like ‘To the Best Dad in the World’ or ‘My Hero Dad’.

Step 8: Finally, write your personal message on the inside of the card and then stick the whole thing into an A5 envelope.

All done, and ready to give to Daddy!
