  • Handprint String Art: To male this interactive design from our collection of handmade Fathers Day cards, begin by lightly sketching a simple star or geometric shape on your cardstock or canvas. Cut embroidery floss into lengths, ensuring they're long enough to stretch across the width of your shape guide with some excess. Secure one end of each string along the pencil outline using tape or glue. Wrap the loose end around the outline shape, crisscrossing to create a woven effect. Vary colours and patterns as you go, then secure loose ends on the back with tape or glue. Finally, erase any remaining pencil guidelines on the front.
