Peek A Boo Father’s Day Card

This Peek a Boo Father’s Day Card changes pictures when you open it like magic.  Show your Dad how much he means to you by making him this card.  I wish my Dad was still with us to get this card.

Your Dad will love this Peek a Boo card. Especially if he is a fisherman (Ken was). My daughter gave this card to Ken last year. He loved it!

What you need:
Paper Selection

The paper for the base card needs to be at least 100 lb weight.  It moves quite a bit and needs to be strong enough.  

The overlays look great in a patterned paper but make sure that the pen shows up on it.

The fisherman and the super dad images are print then cut images.  If your printer takes cardstock use that otherwise whatever is in your printer will do.  Although my printer didn’t take cardstock and I printed on copy paper.  I wish I had used cardstock.  When I bought a new printer that is one of the things I looked for.

Cutting Out the Peek a Boo Father’s Day Card

Cutting this card is fairly simple.  The assembly is more difficult.  The dark cut out frames are optional, but I think it adds a little class to this card.

The fishing picture can be changed to suit your dad or you can put a picture of him in this spot.

Assembly

As mentioned earlier this card is a little tricky to assemble.  First, the easy parts, glue the covers and oval frames to the appropriate parts of the base card.  Make sure you line up the ovals.  Each cover piece will only fit properly to one of the base pieces.

Before starting to glue the base card together, re-crease all the folds.  Then glue the piece with no cover and the small 1/4 inch crease to the back of the piece with the two ovals only at the small area. See the picture below.

Next Glue the piece with the one oval to the back of other side of the piece with two ovals making sure to line up the ovals.

Fold the smaller section over to behind the other oval.  It won’t cover that second oval.  Then fold the back of the card over with the small section in between the parts of the card.

Put glue between the back of the card and the ovals, but do not go past the ovals.  This helps  hold the card together but does not impede the “slider.”

Glue the two pictures to the card inside the ovals.  You can see them on the above pictures.  Press hard to seal all the glue.  Lastly, work the card a few times to make sure that everything is lined up properly.  During opening one picture should slide over the other covering it up.

 

Yor’re Father’s Day Peek a Boo Card is done.  Enjoy!
