DIY Father’s Day | cards & gifts

OOOf. What a week. She got sick. I got sick. No one was sleeping. All we wanted to do was sleep. It has not been fun. But, we’re all still alive. & that is called success in my book!

I have photographed my Mother’s Day & Father’s Day gifts the last couple of years but never shared because if I shared before the holiday, recipients would not be surprised. Then the projects always got pushed aside & I forgot…until it was way too late to publish them. So, I am posting these now & then adding them to the styleberry treasury, so you can consult next year. :) These won’t be much of a surprise if you follow me on Pinterest, but as always, I put my spin on what I do. So…here it goes!

I like handmade gifts. I like personalized gifts. So…both were a part of Father’s Day this year. I found this idea on Pinterest & made it my own using some fun patterned scrapbook paper & colors that are sort of daddy-ish. Everyone seemed to get a kick out of these…


Project order:

cut paper • glue body in the middle only • add hand prints • glue legs under body • glue face • glue body on the outside •

cut out owl • personalize

then I mailed them gently bent in half, with a big piece of bubble wrap in the middle


& as fast as I had them assembled…the little miss ripped off the eyeballs. :::sigh::: Indeed, her nickname is Destroyer.

Daddy, Pop Pop & Gramps also received personalized keychains hand stamped with the name caroline prefers to call them. :) Amazing customer service & timeless custom products by The Copper Poppy as found in The Copper Poppy Etsy Shop. Daddy got a bronzed keychain tag & the grandpas got a custom keychain bar. Can’t say enough wonderful things about Alyssa & her shop!

  • Ali - I love the keychain bar! We got these for our dogs instead of plain old dog tags. They stamped a different piece of info on each side of the bar so it holds all the essentials!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren Salinas - The owls are really cute. I think I may actually use this idea for grandparents day coming up in September. We usually send a handmade card and this will be perfect. Plus I don’t think I can wait until next Father’s day. :)
