fathers day projects

Father’s Day is coming soon and we have a few great projects that you can do to tell your dad he is appreciated and loved. These are easy to create and offer room for customization and making it special (just like your dad).

We put together 3 separate tutorials that show different ways to create custom light-up cards for Fathers Day. They’re easy to do and a great way to show that you care.
