Guest Project — Father’s Day "Tee-rrific" Gift Idea! {and free printable}

1 Jun
Hi Everyone! 

I am so happy to be here guest posting today! I have been a fan of Jen’s for a long time and LOVE all of her great ideas! 

My name is Lindsey, and I blog over at Inspiring Creations.
 I have been crafting since I can remember and I love inspiring others to be creative.  I use my blog to share crafts, tutorials, recipes and I also host a weekly linky party!
Today I am super excited to show you my latest creation! 
Father’s Day will be here before you know it and I have the perfect gift idea for the Father’s in your life.

My hubby LOVES to golf and so I wanted to make something special for him that involved his favorite hobby. 
I did three different color schemes, so you can pick your favorite!

Let’s get started!
Tutorial:
Supplies Needed
1 bag of tees
1 Tag 
1 piece of coordinating card stock cut to the size of tee tag
Tape
Staples
Jute 
Step 1:  Print your free printable here.  (this one is for the color scheme shown)
I have designed 3 different color schemes 

Step 2: Measure the tag on the tees.

Step 3: Cut out your tags and cut out coordinating scrapbook paper to the size you measured.


Step 4:  Staple scrapbook paper to the bag.  (Try to staple in far enough that your tag will hide your staples)

Step 5: Tape your tag onto your scrapbook paper.  I used scrapbooking tape for this. 

Step 6: Wrap jute around the bag loosely about 3 times and tie in the back. 

Step 7: Tape your circle tag onto the front of the bag in the middle of jute. 

And you’re done!  
Super simple and easy to make. 



I hope you like it! 🙂
Be sure to stop by my blog for some inspiration of your own! 🙂


Thanks Jen for having me today! 
 Thanks Lindsey! 
What a great Father’s Day gift idea!!

Guest Project — Make Stamped Initial Cuff Links!! {Father’s Day gift idea}

26 May


Hi, everyone! 

I’m Julie
from Less-Than-Perfect
Life of Bliss
& I’m happy to be here today to show you how to
make Dad some  
 

Stamped Initial Cuff Links for Father’s Day!
Even beginner crafters
can do this project in less than 20 minutes, & when you’re done, you’ll
have a great personalized gift that will really show Dad how much you love him!
You’ll need: 

  • a few scraps
    of light-colored fabric ( I chose beige linen), 
  • some bezel cuff links (found
    where jewelry making supplies are sold)
  • a small covered button kit
  • some mini
    alphabet stamps 
  • ink pad
  • some strong adhesive such as E-6000.

Start by cutting the
fabric in two small squares, approximately 1 inch X 1 inch each.
Next, stamp Dad’s
initials onto the fabric.
Follow the
instructions for making the covered button, being careful to keep the stamped
initial centered on the front of the button.
  Then use the point of a
pair of pliers or other tool to bend the shank of the button over & allow
the button to lie flat.
Now you’re ready to
attach the buttons to the cuff links! Using E-6000 or another strong adhesive,
carefully glue the buttons into the bezels of the cuff links.

That’s it! A
super-easy project that’s a lot of fun as well!

And Dad’s favorite part will be knowing that you made them especially
for him!
Wow – I love that idea Julie!! 
Thanks for the awesome Father’s Day idea and tutorial! 
Julie has a fabulous blog. I love featuring her ideas. 
Here are some of my favorites:

Last Minute Father’s Day Gift : Photo on Canvas Tutorial

17 Jun

It is Wednesday and time for Extreme Makeover: Me Edition, but since we are running around trying to get ready for our trip, my fridge is almost empty and needs a good clean out. Go over to Amber’s to see everyone else’s fridges and helpful snacking ideas.

******

I realized that it’s Father’s Day on Sunday and wanted to make something special for my sweet husband. So my kids and I made this yesterday. This is a project that is fast and easy but meaningful.

******

Father’s Day Photo on Canvas

This is what you need:

  1. 1 canvas (I paid $4 at my local craft store) 11 x 14
  2. White cotton fabricthat is 100% cotton
  3. Printed fabric that is also 100% cotton
  4. scissors
  5. iron
  6. staple gun
  7. Iron on transfer paper (you can find this at your office supply store like Staples or Office Max)
{this is the original, very old picture}
  • Upload your picture to your computer. I added a little bit of text through a fun editing program called http://www.picnik.com. I also added the year for fun. If you add text, you meed to be sure to reverse it so when you iron it on it will be the right side. Or you can check you printer set up, some have a print out option that says iron on transfers – it will automatically reverse your text.
  • Then you need to make your picture bigger. My picture is a really old one so the quality was horrible when it was blown up. If you have a more recent picture, yours will turn out much clearer than mine. I used Microsoft Picture Manager and made the photo into a 8 x 10 size.
  • Print out the picture on to your photo transfer paper.
  • Iron the print onto the white cotton fabric. You need to have your iron on the highest setting with no steam. Apply pressure and iron for at least 3 minutes.
  • After a few minutes — peel the transfer paper off.
  • Now cut around the image.
  • Take your printed material, lay the canvas frame on top of the material. Cut out the material around the canvas, leaving about 3 inches on each side.
  • Lay your photo on the u[ side of the printed fabric. (The reason I transferred the image onto white fabric was so that the image will show through better against the print.)
  • Take another, blank sheet of transfer paper and lay it over the photo that you already ironed onto the printed fabric. Iron that blank transfer page over your photo. This will attach the photo to the printed fabric. (If you don’t want to do that, you can use adhesive to attach the photo to the printed material — but it might not lay flat.)
  • Wait a few minutes until cool – then peel off.
  • Lay your printed fabric inside out with the photo on it on your work surface, lay the canvas over the top. Carefully turn the canvas over, holding the cotton material tight. Position the picture where you want it in relation to the canvas.
  • Turn the canvas back over, then pull th material taut and staple one side of the frame. Turn it back over to make sure it is still in position. Then staple the other side, making sure to keep tightly pulled. Do this on each side until you have stapled all of the material on the frame. This may take a while to get everything straight and pulled tight.
  • Once you have the material attached to the fame, the fun begins.
  • Take some contrasting fabric and ribbons and embellish it whatever way you choose. I cut a 3 inch wide section of a contrasting cotton material and stapled it underneath at both end across one side of the picture, Then I took some other ribbons and strips of other material and tied it. It would also be cute to add other embellishments. You could hot glue those on to the canvas.

A picture of your kids would also be really cute for Father’s Day. Or for a grandpa, pictures of his grandkids would be fun! It would also be a special gift for a birthday present, a anniversary gift (you could do an old wedding photo), or even a picture of a flower would be nice all embellished.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
XOXO
