The very creative iDad card
just requires printing and cutting lots of little “icon” windows with
flaps that lift to reveal all that is near and dear to his
heart. No, not photos of his gadgets–photos of the family.
The version as seen on She Knows will take some work, but if you want to
make it easier on yourself you could just print the icons, skip the
flaps, and make a funky looking “iDad” card. Or alternate the icons with
a few pics of the kids and split the difference. Essentially, you can make it as easy or complex as you’d like–and the envelope is a nice touch.
Now of course the iPhone lovers among us need to point out that these
icons aren’t the actual iPhone icons. (In fact, some of them look pretty
Androidy…) Which gives me another good idea: Print out some actual
iPhone icons yourself to cut and paste. Or if he’s not an iDad type but
more of an AndroidDad type or a WindowsDad type, you could simply search
Google or Bing image for icons and have at it. -Liz
