Grandpa Cards

I had to make Father's Day cards for my kids' three grandpas so this is what I came up with. I used a printable (from pinterest that I can't find again for the life of me) and printed them wallet sized sheets instead of 8 x 11.5. Then I sewed them on the card. I had to use big envelopes, because the card is an 8 x 11.5 fold just in half instead of quarters.
This is what I did for the wrapping on my husband's presents. 
The left one was candy the kids wanted to eat instead of give. The right was box cutter blades for his utility knife. 

Cup Coaster

After 1 week of summer vacation it became apparent we needed this.
A cup coaster for everyone. I added extra tiles because the board I found fit seven tiles. In retrospect I only needed a three tile board, my husband and I already only use one cup a day. 
I used modge podge, scrapbook paper, stickers, and sealant for the tiles.
This is hardly an original idea.  Search pinterest for family cup coaster.
I also used drawer pulls as decorative handles on the outside like someone else on pinterest.

Father's Day Foam Wreath

Of course I made a new wreath for June. A Father's Day wreath! At first I didn't want ties because the are cliche but then I decided they were universal. Plus my tie bunting turned out so cute. 
It of course matched with my Father's Day subway art that I got here
