Hey there, Amy from The Happy Scraps here today. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to gifts for Father’s Day, I always have a hard time coming up with something useful that I think they’ll like. I figure that they can always use snacks, they can take them to work, snack on them on their commute, or just snack on them at home. So, I decided to grab a can of peanuts, and use a play on words to put this quick gift together. You can have this Father’s Day Quick Gift made in about 10 minutes, and Dad is sure to love it.
I started by measuring the can so I would know how big to cut my piece of paper.
I traced the lid onto the Jen Hadfield Everyday Pops of Color paper and cut it out. To get the paper to fit inside the little lip on the lid, you’ll want to cut just inside the line.
Make sure your paper fits inside the lip on the lid, but don’t adhere it just yet.
Take your paper back out of the lid and add the gold foiled foam thickers spelling dad. Then hand write the word hey above the thickers. Now you can adhere the top to the lid.
Next, I spelled the word nuts onto the Jen Hadfield Everyday Pops of Color paper, leaving room to write above and below it. Then I used my paper cutter to cut a square out around the word.
Once I had it cut out, I hand wrote “we are” and “about you!” on it. I grabbed my corner chomper and rounded the edges. Then I punched a hole in the top corner.
Using some twine, I doubled it up and then tied it around the can.
I slipped the tag onto the twine and tied it on.
Then it was finished.
I love the way the tag turned out using the Gold Foiled Foam Thickers, don’t you?
I don’t know any dad that wouldn’t love to get this as a gift for Father’s Day.
