Father’s Day Gift–Candy Bar Wrappers

I came up with another version of a Father’s Day Gift along the Father’s Day Candy Bar Wrapper theme.  For some reason I just love the idea of wrapping up chocolate bars in fun and creative ways.  I made some a couple of years ago which some of you might remember or actually used.  You can find the printable Candy Bar Wrappers here:

I thought it would be fun to wrap them up to look like they are wearing a suit and tie.  I just created a pattern and used 3 separate pieces of scrapbook paper.  The first pattern is for the suit coat.  I used a gray linen-like scrapbook paper and cut it out and then folded where it is indicated on the pattern.  Then I punched three paper brads through the marked holes for the buttons on the suit.  I used a large glue dot to hold the suit together on the candy bar in the front.

For the white shirt, simply print the pattern onto white cardstock and then cut out the pattern and fold on the lines indicated.  You will fold this up so that it acts as a sleeve to hold the candy bar of your choice in.  Then you will use the third piece of paper to cut out a colorful tie.  Just glue this underneath the flaps of the shirt collar.

Then I printed out some of these round Father’s Day Gift Tag Labels and attached one to the candy bar wrapper with a simple black ribbon.  The gift tags could also be used in so many other ways and on other gifts you might be giving Dad or Grandpa.

The shirt has a fun little Father’s Day quote that will be able to be read when Dad goes to pull out the candy bar inside.

Father’s Day Printables

I don’t normally decorate for Father’s Day, but I have been enjoying adding some little touches of holiday decor on our entry way table.  It is nice to have one little spot that I can add a few easy decor items to that don’t take a lot of time and energy.  Especially during the month of May.  Anyone else feel like May is crazy insane?

I thought it would be fun to add a touch of Father’s Day decor in the home to celebrate my kids dad.  He works so hard for our family and is always willing to spend time working and playing with the kids.  We are so lucky to have him.

I came up with a couple of Father’s Day Printables that can be easily printed out and placed in an 8×10 picture frame.  I made the first one and then came across a quote from Billy Graham that I had heard before but forgotten.  I really wanted to display it in our home…so I get to share both of them with you.

I shopped the house and added this picture of my husband and his two boys playing in the ocean, which is one of their favorite things to do with one another.  I also added a willow tree figurine that we had in the boys room of a father and his child.

Father’s Day Gift –He’s One Smart Cookie

I have another really simple Father’s Day Gift idea to share with you today!  I love anything that you can personalize.  I feel like it makes a gift a little more EXTRA special.  Like you added some simple details to make it unique and personal.

cookie-bag

I simply took some Glassine Bags and printed this simple image on them individually.  I picked up the bags from a local shop that sells these amazing cookies and they sold me a few bags for .25 cents.

one-smart-cookie

To print onto the bags, simply tape your Glassine Bags onto a piece of computer paper.  I have a free printable that you can print.  This shows you where to tape your bag so that you can center it and see where the image will print.  Place your bag where you want the picture to be.  I printed some right in the middle and then some a bit lower so I could fold down the top and add a little Father’s Day Tie.  For best results you will want to use a laser printer.

grandpa-gift

I also have printables customized for the older Father’s and Father figures in our lives…such as Grandpa and Papa!  Need a blank one?  I have provided a blank one as well so that you can give these to a teacher, a friend, a neighbor…really any one who needs a little surprise pick me up gift!

You could also surprise you kids with one of these on their last day of school to celebrate!  I usually try to welcome the kids home on that last day with some warm cookies and milk and am thinking it would be fun to slip the cookies in these baggies for each of them.  And, speaking of the last day of school…we are down to the final days here and we couldn’t be more excited!!

What about you? Are you almost finished with school at your house?

Father’s Day Gift Ideas and Printables

Hey guys…just a few more days before Father’s Day.  I have a few more simple but fun Father’s Day Printables for you if you are still looking for a simple gift idea.

I picked up a package of “Pop-Its” from Wal-Mart.  Now, I normally don’t shop at Wal-Mart…not for any particular reason…other than the fact that the lines and service in mine drive me batty…and I prefer to go to Target…cause you know…I love me some Target.  But anyways…if you want to get the exact ones I got…you can find them in the seasonal section at Wal-Mart.

fathers-day-gift 3

I simply wrapped a white piece of paper around them and then simply stuck this Father’s Day Printable on it.  If you want to dress it up a bit more, add some fun scrapbook paper.

Or…Grab your Father’s favorite soda…and then wrap this printable around the neck of the bottle…or cut it out and wrap it around the middle of the bottle to make a label for the drink.

And finally, you could grab some Pop Rocks and add the fun label to a single package…or bundle a few together and give them to your Pop! 

fathers-day

I have seen these Pop Rocks at Target and at the Dollar Store.  I picked mine up at the dollar store since they sell three in a package for one dollar.

There was another option that I had thought would be fun to add the same tag too if you prefer to stay away from the sugary treats…Simply grab a bottle of your favorite popcorn kernels or a bag of microwave popcorn and add the label to it for a healthier gift for Dear Old Dad!

Whatever way you decide to go…these make a simple and easy way to show your Pop you care!

I like jars.  Have you noticed? haha!  I can’t help it.  My brain just keeps going there…so I apologize in advance.  But…if you happen to adore jars as much as I do…then you might want to read on.

Father’s Day is quickly approaching.  I always like to try to come up with a simple and easy to re-create gift idea for each holiday and these Father’s Day Tie Bottles fit the bill this year. 

Father's-Day-Gift 5

The bottles are recycled Starbucks Frappucino bottles that have been washed clean and dried.  Then simply fill with your Father’s favorite candy and add the printable tie with a piece of string.

Father's-Day-Gift 6

If you want to take it a step further, you can print out these fun Father’s Day Hershey’s Kiss Printable “stickers” to glue onto the bottom of some chocolate kisses or hugs candy.  These are a super fun and easy way to add some uniqueness to your Father’s Day Gift.

These are so easy, you will want to make them for all the father figures in your life.  Or use them so a church group or school group can make them for their own fathers.
