In an effort to avoid scrambling last minute to think of a creative way to celebrate Lucas’ “Dada” this year, I’m brainstorming ideas for cute ways for Lucas to tell his dad how much he appreciates him. You may have seen my “You’ve Got Me Hooked” Valentine’s Day card for Michael this year.
Well, I started thinking, while I can’t reuse this idea, my subscribers certainly can! So, if the father figure in your life is a fisherman, this post is for you. I’m going to show you how to make a “I’m Hooked on my Dad!” fishing themed Father’s Day card, with and without a Dowel Rod that is at least 12 inches long. I cut a 36 inch rod down to 16 inches.

Creating Your Card With a Cricut or Cricut Maker
I highly recommend using a darker color of cardstock for the inside text of the card to help the cut text on the outside really pop.
If you like the text as is, click Make It. You will want to select “Cardstock for Intricate Cuts” for your material.
Making Your Rod and Reel
Use your drill and a small drill bit to drill a hole about a 1/4 of an inch down from the top of your dowel.
Thread your string and secure it to the dowel and then secure it to your fish.
Save a bag of Trolli Crawlers for Dad to add to the theme and to congratulate yourself on completing this project and all of your hard work, pop open your extra bag of Trolli Crawlers and enjoy!
