  • paint brushes
  • popsicle stick
  • small star stickers
  • glue stick
  • scissors/paper cutter
  • hole punch

For the Dad With a Sweet Tooth

I'm new to Pinterest.  My friend, Suzy sent me an invite to join and I've been slowly figuring out the site and setting my pin boards up.  It's a fun and great way to discover and share the plethora of goodies the internet has to offer.

Anyway, my point....
I found this really cute Father's Day card on one of Suzy's pin boards and thought I should share it with you, since the holiday celebrating all things Dad is quickly approaching.

So clever!  The credit for this sweet candy bar letter (and photo) goes to the girls at the Bits of Everything blog.

Have fun making it and TRY not to eat it!

Father's Day Gift Bags

Check out these fun DIY gift bags!  ...perfect for a Father's Day gift...

I found them on Paper Crave via Art Fire.  Here's what you need and how to make them....

  • gift box template + bow tie / necktie template
  • a printer
  • cardstock for the box and tie(s)*
  • scissors
  • a ruler
  • a pen or pencil
  • glue dots
  • double-sided tape
  • 1/4 inch circle hole punch (for bow tie box)
  • a scoring tool (optional)
  • a cutting mat (optional)

Print the box template onto lightweight cardstock, cut out along the solid lines, and assemble according to the directions found in the template file. Place your gift in the box, and use double-sided tape or glue dots to securely close the flap. Print bow tie/necktie templates, cut out, and trace onto your choice of patterned or solid colored paper. Cut out the tie(s) and attach to the box flap using double stick tape or glue dots. If making the bow tie box, punch out three 1/4 inch “buttons” using a hole punch, and attach to the front of the box using glue dots (small Zots are the perfect size).
Alternative directions: Assemble the box and attach the tie to the top flap first, and add your gift last.

Have fun & get messy!
