This origami sailboat card was a joint effort between me and my son!
To celebrate this new adventure, my son and I made a sailboat card for Father’s Day. I used a basic origami technique to make the boat, but adapted it so that it could be decorated by kids in advance of folding. I thought some of you might like to try it too – because even if you don’t know someone who loves boats it might be useful for a transportation theme!
To start, download the SAILBOAT CARD TEMPLATE from my Craftulate Store and print it onto white paper.
The outlined shape is the hull, so this is the part that your child needs to decorate. If they’re going to write words, make sure that the number 2 is right at the top as they view the paper.
To fold it, pleased find the tutorial below (I used letter stickers for this version).
Step 3: Turn the paper over, so the decorated side is at the back, and the number one is top left (but face down).
Step 10: Fold the base behind at the solid line to form a stand.Origami Sailboat Card - kids can decorate it for Father's Day! Click To Tweet
