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…
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!
Do you have a great Father’s Day gift idea? I’d love if you left a link below so we can consult it for upcoming holidays!
