Father’s Day – Love you to PIECES

I plan on making a basket of goodies for Father’s day. Different items my husband enjoys to eat. So to start off my basket I added a jar of his favorite candies. Can you guess? He is a major peanut butter lover!

I used an empty frappuccino bottle I got from a friend. (I love to save glass bottles of all types, never know when you will need one).  Filled it with his favorite pieces candy. Added a matching orange ribbon around the neck and a tag. The lid top was painted brown with enamel pray paint.

I plan to make a few more of these. To give to my father-in-law, and my brother-in-law. So I created tags appropriate for them as well. (I would love to send one to heaven to my dad too 🙂 )

I will feature other goodies this month that I plan to add to our father’s day basket.

Would you like a freebie? I know you won’t need 6 “DAD” tags, so on this printable is a  DAD, GRANDPA and then 4 generic ones for those special Father’s in your life. Even great for friends!!

I used a 2 1/2 inch circle punch – Uchida Clever Lever Mega Craft Punch, Circle For the tags. Make it easier on myself but you can cut it out by hand as well.

    I love this idea! Is it possible to get a template that says “I love you to pieces” instead of we? I’d love to have my preschoolers send these home for their dad. Thanks!

    Love the labels for Fathers Day. I had an idea I wanted to share. Because my Dad lives in NC and we have to mail his gift , instead of putting the reeses pieces in a glass jar and painting the lid (because I had no spray paint) I found a plastic peanut butter jar with an orange lid already done. Perfect! Thanks

    Also wanted to add. Reeses makes a peanut butter jar with an orange lid!

    I love this idea! Is there any chance you can change “we” to “I”. I’d like to have my students possibly do this as part of their Father’s Day gift, but I have a handful of only children so “we” would not be appropriate.
    “Dad, I love you to pieces” 😉
