We have collected postcards for you, which will be appreciated by both the military man and those who have served for a long time or even have not served at all. In short, any man will be very pleased to receive such a greeting. Making cards on February 23 with your own hands is very simple, so even children will cope with this task.

Postcard from pasta for dad

Let's start with a master class for children - a great option for elementary school or kindergarten. We offer several options for postcards from pasta and cereals. These postcards are good because they do not need to be drawn for too long, and therefore even the smallest children will cope with them. Any dad would be happy to receive such a funny homemade postcard on February 23rd.


We will need:

  • white or colored cardboard;
  • colored or decorative paper;
  • glue or clay;
  • cereals (buckwheat, rice, peas) or macaroni of any shape;
  • paints (gouache, watercolor or any others).

If the child is small, help him draw a picture and use clay for fastening the grits to the cardboard. If he already knows how to make any crafts from paper and work with glue, it is preferable to use glue.

Fold the cardboard box in half or cut a rectangle that you will draw. If you work with pasta, you need to paint them right away; if you work with other grains, you can paint them later. How to work with some types of cereals, you can read in our article.

Simple decor in this case will be quite enough. Cut two rectangles: one from a newspaper, the second from paper, make a mustache and a bow tie out of pasta.


Add congratulations. If a child can draw, a postcard on February 23 can be made very interesting. For example, the pope can give a ship filled with cereal.

A craft for the little ones - the word "DAD" and the number "23". Write the word on cardboard in large letters and roll sausages out of clay.To fill it, decorate with peas or buckwheat.

Postcard in the technique of quilling

This is a very beautiful way to make a custom card by February 23 with your own hands. Any man will appreciate the effort that you spent on it. Postcard in the technique of quilling - one of the best options to congratulate your beloved man, father or grandfather. Stylish, original and tasteful.

We will need:

  • several strips of colored paper;
  • cardboard for the base;
  • transparent glue;
  • white cardboard;
  • quilling needle.

If you do not have a special quilling needle, you can make it yourself. To do this, take a regular sewing needle with a big eye and bite off its tip with scissors. Insert the game with a sharp end into any wooden base.

The postcard begins with the preparation of drawings and details for quilling. Cut the paper into strips with a width of no more than 0.5 centimeters or less.Twist the parts with a needle, just passing it along the strip. Form the figures with your fingers. Earlier we already told you how to twist parts in the technique of quilling.

On the cardboard box we draw the desired image: the inscription "February 23", tank, airplane, etc. We lay it out with cardboard strips, sticking them on the edge with transparent glue. While they hold not very firmly, but when filling up they will stand "tightly".

Fill the space with twisted parts.
