craft: 10 minute Father's Day gift

Here's a really easy Father's Day gift that your little ones will love to make with you.

Supplies:

- bottle of Root Beer {bought at Target in a six pack for $2.84 - the hubby's been trying to drink them all week long}
- cupcake liner {any color}
- ribbon {I used brown but really wanted to use a navy blue, but going to the craft store, last minute, with two little girls in tow, didn't seem very appealing to me}
- white and blue cardstock

1. Place ribbon around neck of Root Beer and cross. Where it crosses you want to glue with a glue gun.
2. Take the cupcake liner and scrunch it in the middle and then flatten it.
3. I was in the process of making a printable for the writing {world's best POP}, but for some reason, our printer's not working . . . so handwritten it is on white cardstock.
4. The white, circular cardstock glued to dk. blue, circular cardstock - slightly larger. Then glued to middle of flattened cupcake liner.
5. Glue cupcake liner to ribbon {where it crosses}
and you're finished!



He's definitely gonna love this!

I'll be posting to the linking parties here.
