Table Tennis Birthday Card

Happy Friday, everyone!!!

I made this special card for my Dad last September and totally forgot to post this! My dad loves to play table tennis with his friends, so why not make a card that shapes like one? :)

Table tennis birthday card for my Dad

I had an idea in my head, but as usual, I had to draw it out to make sure the measurements work out. I made my own template for the paddle and ball so I used my handy idea/sketchbook to do that.

Planning ahead :)

Tools and Supplies used:
♥ Red, black, orange, sky blue card stock paper
♥ Light brown with small polka dots (Holiday Collection stack) by DCWV
 Clear bead & jewellery cord by Stretch Magic
♥ 2" Circle Lever Punch by Recollections
♥ Black gel ink pen

With the help of Double Happiness (DHS) 3-Star ping pong ball, I made my dad his own table tennis paddle and ball :)

The inside is quite cute. The front cover opens up like a card so that my brothers and I can write our messages to my dad. To make it even cuter, I tied the ball to a clear cord and attached it to the paddle. So when my dad opens the card, the ball falls out...surprise! :)

And here's a picture of my silly dad.

Wisdom in those wrinkles ;)


  1. Are you looking to elevate your table tennis game or perhaps just show your love for somebody through a thoughtful gift? If you are anything like I was when I first started playing over 15 years ago, you might be thinking: "aren't all paddles basically the same?" The answer is no, BUT you are in luck: whether a beginner or experienced amateur, you really only need to look at a few key features when buying a new paddle, and in this article I'll be walking you through exactly what you need to know. By the end of this article, you'll know the absolute best paddle for YOU and your needs, where to buy it, and what to expect from it.

  2. When you begin perusing this, you can't stop without finishing it. That is the amount you get retained into it.
