Father's Day treats!

Happy Weekend!

Well, Father's Day is finally here this weekend, so here is the last creation for MAN week @ Joyful Stamper!

These were so fun to make & really did not take much time!  What's in the treat bag???? well, if this were for my hubby, it would be Tootsie Rolls! lol

I needed the assistance of my creative son to help fold this origami shirt.  It was too small for my fingers!  Folded paper shirt tutorial HERE or a video HERE (they use a dollar bill to show you how....I've used this one for a money gift....but it's the same concept with scrapbook paper!)

Treat box Template HERE!

There are so many fun Father's Day crafts & printables on the web, good for last minute ideas.  I just wanted to share Lynn's adorable bookmark printables @ Jinjerup!  Visit her blog for a FREE download!

Oh, and I found another new challenge blog, Paper Creator's Crafts!  The challenges start today, June 18th!

Enjoy your weekend!  God Bless all those wonderful men out there, who love your mothers, support & cherish their wives and adore their children!

These are fantastic Maria, I'm going to have to see how you made them, they are just perfect for men. You are not going to believe this but my 13 year old daughter went shopping today and found a shop that sells american foods, she came home with Lucky charms cereal and tootsie rolls lol, I'd never heard of them before and now I've heard of them twice in the last two hours, hey they weren't bad either but way too expensive over here. She paid £6.00 for the cereal and £1.50 each for the tootsie rolls, not sure how much that is in dollars but I imagine its probably four or five times more expensive than what you can get them for in America. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. hugs Donna x
