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 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.

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.

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.

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?
