We’re gearing up for Father’s Day with a week full of fun Father’s Day themed projects and featured. Here to kick things off is Designer Candice Zentner with a fun “treat for pop.”
The colors in the Americana collection remind me of old vintage Coca-Cola and I thought this inspiration would be a great place to start for a little Father’s Day card and treat. I found a really neat glass cup shaped like a pop can in the dollarstore and made a shape card that mimicked the same style of can.
Since the initial can card I made was fairly plain, I decided to add some interest and detail using some of the fun elements that match the American Collection, like the printed cardstock shapes. I used some stamps as part of my sentiment then added ‘Pops’ to the bottom with the super sparkly crimson Thickers.
Using dies from My Creative Time, I cut out two stars from the 6×6 paper pad and used a clothespin to hold the stars together with a bow.
I thought it would be really fun to fill my matching cola can cup with coke bottle candies.
I used some cone shaped treat bags, filled them with candies and tied the bag at the top using some hemp twine and two more stars cut from patterned paper.
I hope my project using Americana has sparked some inspiration for a gift for one of the dads in your life! Happy crafting!
