How to make a Robot Father’s Day Card from loose parts

Have you ever wondered what’s lurking around the bottom of your dad’s tool box? We put together a little self-portrait of our dad using bits and bobs from the took box and a few little extra little cogs from the craft box. Hot glued together with a couple of googly eyes, we think he looks just like our dad! We stuck him on a Father’s Day card, but he could also make a great magnet or popped into a 3d frame. We think our dad is pretty special – he keeps our family bolted together!

I love how easy it is to put these cards together.. and how each and every Nuts & Bolts Father’s Day Card will be unique and different. Wouldn’t they make great “robot cards” too? So so cute. Love the chemistry between this Father and Daughter. Just adorable. And the perfect Father’s Day Activity to go with it.
