Father’s Day Homemade Gift Fun

For Father’s Day this year, I decided to make some simple gift baskets. The theme was inspired by Pinterest. If you can’t tell by the picture, the theme was POP!

Difficulty: Easy

Materials:

– Basket or bucket. I chose to use buckets from the Dollar Tree.
– Plastic Wrap/ Shrink Wrap
– Bow/Ribbons
– POP tarts
– Soda POP
– Blow POP Candies
– Tootsie POPS lollipops
– Corn POPS
– POP Corn
– POP Chips
– POP Rocks Candy
– Glue Dots- (re-positionable ones work best)
– cardboard pieces and plastic grocery bags

How to Assemble:

1. Decide how you want everything to sit in the basket/bucket.
2. Use cardboard pieces and plastic grocery bags to add height to some of the items and make it look more presentable.
3. Once you have decided how you want everything to sit, secure everything with glue dots.
4. Then place the basket in the shrink wrap/plastic wrap and tie it off.
5. If you used shrink wrap then follow the instructions on the package to shrink it onto the basket.
6. Lastly, add the bow and tape the card to the front/back depending on where you want it.
7. Admire your awesome work!

Mother’s Day HANDmade Card – So Cute!

Difficulty: Easy

Materials:

 

– Scissors
– Crayons
– Construction Paper – 8.5″X11″
– Your hand

How to Assemble:

1. Fold a piece of 8.5″X11″ Construction Paper in half. Trace your hand close to the folded edge. The result should look like this:

2. Carefully cut out the hand taking care to not cut the thumb or the finger to that the card will still be connected. It should then look like this:

3. Add your own message to the inside of the card. As you can see in the above image I used the heart gap as an “O” to write out the message I LOVE U! On the front as pictured at the top of this post I simply wrote “Happy Mother’s Day!” Feel free to get creative though and write whatever you feel will tell mom you love her!
