Cool Father's Day Gift Ideas To Make

Father's day is such a special day and we know you want to find just the right way to celebrate. Every day until June 19th we will be featuring a new idea(s) for you to choose from and we've found some really fun ones.  The first one we are featuring is from Kristine McKay Designs are for the golfers and the fishermen.
Create this fun “mock” bait box.  It is made out of a 7″ square paper mache’ box that was purchased at Walmart.  It is simply covered with a wood patterned paper.  The “Bait” jars are old baby food jars that have been filled with goodies such as swedish fish, gummy worms, and gold fish crackers.

These Retro soda bottles were created out of an old 6 pack of IBC soda bottles.  Take Dad back to a time when “Father Knew Best”.  Fill each jar with his favorite goodies. Tip:  print onto off-white paper.  Linen or textured cardstock looks the best.

Give Dad a gift he can use out on the course.  Create this adorable golf score card matchbook.  Each score sheet has a fun quote just for dad.  Tip:  Print on off-white paper for best results.

 Dad is “T”-rrific!  Let him know just how much.  Create this fun golf tee jar out of an old Ragu sauce jar and fill it with golf tees that have little messages written on the sides of each tee. Tip: project shown was printed on off-white paper.
