#MyHappyCrafts: The Dad Pack

DIY personalized gift pack for father's day

Shopping for Dad is no easy feat. And finding something personalized and affordable is almost impossible. In this tutorial, I'll walk you through putting together this fun "Dad Pack" - a gift pack filled with a few personalized DIY gifts and some of his favourite treats.

AND THEN...?

Create a "gift basket" using an upcycled ice cream container, some wrapping paper and stuffing (hay, tissue paper or even ripped pieces of newspaper or wrapping paper):

 

Measure enough wrapping paper to cover the outside of the ice cream container and cut "pizza slices" in the corners of the wrapping paper.

One by one, fold towards the centre of the container and cello tape the corners in place. Also cello tape down any unruly bits on the inside.

Pack the hand-made gifts we just made, and finish off your Dad Pack by adding some of Dad's favourite things - a couple of beers; delectable snacks; drawings from the kids... Make it your own. Or rather - make it HIS!

 

SHARE THE LOVE

Show off your Dad Pack (and maybe even his expression when you give it to him!) by posting a pic on Instagram using #MyHappyCrafts. I would love to see it!

Until next time... Happy crafting!
