Plaid Gifts and Cards for Dad

We loved making projects using the new PLAID DAD paper collection from Simple Stories! "I'm so plaid you're my dad" is one of the sentiments that you can cut out of the 12" x 12" sheet of paper. There's also #1 Dad, DAD the man the myth the legend, papa bear, my favorite daddy-o, coolest dad ever, the best dads have beards, and sawdust is man glitter. These sentiments are all cut apart pieces included in 1 sheet of paper. Cut them out and glue on your cardstock to make a stunning card in minutes!



>> SALE: The Plaid Dad Paper Collection is 20% off now through June 17, 2018.
