{ Father’s Day Gift Idea }

1 Box of Whoppers and some paper =
I have been ‘trying’ to get these done for the last 4 days but finally found some time today to get them put together. I should have done them when I found the ideas earlier this month. Oh well at least I got them done right? (I made 3: one for Dad & two for G-pa’s) 
They only take about 15 minutes, so if you have a box of Whoppers, some scrapbook paper/cardstock & the time to watch a short video tutorial then you can make this quick and cute little gift. If I can do it anyone can. :)
The Whopper box idea I got from this Blog and the Shirt & Tie Tutorial from this BlogI just combined the 2 together.
Don’t know if this will help or not but here are my paper measurements for the Box O’ Whoppers:
*Tan Cardstock: This is the paper that says Happy Fathers Day DAD, this paper I ran through the printer: 8 1/4 x 3 inches (cut 2)
*Green Cardstock: 5 1/2 x 12 you may have to add a little sliver in the back I did but that’s no biggie.
*Plaid Paper: 4 1/2 x 8 1/4 I just butted up the edges of the plaid paper that wraps around the box to the shirt paper. 
Clear as mud? Good :)
Paper Shirt & Tie Video Tutorial found here.
Have a Super Fabulous Father’s Day Weekend!

  3. SO cute! We're making Bakerella's cupcake burger and fries but adding cupcake icecream cones and I found mini coke glasses at the $ store today. Should be a cute little old fashioned burger basket dessert after the AAA Rainiers baseball game. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain!

  7. You're awesome! I guess it would help to have a dad to have to give one to. I took mine out for father's day on thursday. Doing NOTHING tomorrow since the dork i live with did NOTHING for me for mother's day and i do mean nothing. It was 4pm before anyone said happy mother's day to me. Glad it comes first b/c i'm following suit!
