Father’s Day Tie Banner June 17, 2012

I downloaded this FREE Father’s Day printable from Amanda’s Parties TO GO!  I loved the colors of this banner and I thought the ties were super cute.  My husband was surprised and loved it!  I also used the Mother’s Day printable by Amanda’s parties TO GO.  Check it out by clicking here.

 

 

Project Supplies

1.)  Download the free printable.  To download, you must “like” Amanda’s Parties to go on facebook and then from her facebook page, you can download the file.

2.)  White paper or cardstock.

3.)  Scissors.

4.)  Ribbon.

5.)  Hole Punch.

6.)  Double sided tape or tape runner.

 

Project Steps

1.)  Print banner

2.)  Cut it out.

3.)  If you print it on regular paper (as I did), tape the tie pieces to a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.  I fit three ties on each piece of 12×12 cardstock.

4.)  Cut out the ties again with an outline of cardstock.

5.)  Use your hole punch to punch two holes in each tie.

6.)  Thread ribbon through the ties to create your banner.

Time:  45 minutes

Substitutions:  Since my printer doesn’t feed heavy paper, I had to print the banner on regular printer paper.  I wanted to banner to last a few years, so I opted to outline each tie with brown cardstock.  You could certainly print it on cardstock or glossy thick paper and skip the extra steps I took!

Substitutions:  I didn’t print directly onto cardstock because my printer can’t handle it.  So, I opted to print on regular printer paper and then to make it more sturdy, I outlined it in an orange cardstock.

Time:  Less than 5 minutes

Decorate Daddy’s Favorite Snacks – Tie Printable June 6, 2012

When my husband comes home from work, he takes the girls down to play in the basement.  This gives me some time to unwind and get ready for dinner.  There is always a Costco size jar of snacks in the basement.  My daughter calls them Sophie/Daddy snacks.  Since we’re out of “Sophie/Daddy” snacks, we picked up a new jar at Costco the other day.  We’re saving them for Father’s Day and used this really cute printable to “wrap” the gift.

Time:  5 minutes

Substitutions:  I didn’t use the entire printable.  I cut off the neckline because I thought it looked cute with just the tie and collar.
