Inspired by the Operation Write Home mention in our May issue, members of our editoriastarpunchl staff decided to spend their lunch hour crafting blank, homemade Father’s Day cards to be sent overseas to the troops. It took some of us a moment to realize that soldiers probably like to send their own fathers a card for the holiday, and that they can’t simply stop by a drugstore to pick one up. We stamped, cut, glued and colored, and were able to produce 240 cards. Not bad for a day’s work! Donated products and paper from the company Stampin’ Up! made both the experience and our cards extra fabulous—we all fought over the star hole punch. Why not take some time of your own to make a few blank cards for the men and women serving our country? They need cards for every occassion, and it was tons of fun too!
