Father's Day Cards

I know I'm a week late in posting this, but I'm blaming the Canada Post strike because I had to wait until I saw my Dad to give him his card and therefore didn't want to spoil any surprises.

Months ago while reading through blogs (it was probably at Christmas), I saw someone give the fabulous gift idea of a "Year of Yum" (I don't know who it was, so if it was you, let me know and I'll link to your post). The men in my family are hard to give gifts to, so I tucked that idea into my "vault" of ideas in my head to pull out when necessary. Father's Day seemed like the perfect opportunity. Mady helped me pick out containers and then helped to make some treats to put inside.

Of course I used my silhouette to make the cards and the little gift certificate to go inside. This is a pretty simple gift to give. There is some upkeep throughout the year, but with the amount that I bake, I'm not too concerned about that part. Hehe!

My Dad has already returned his container (it was within hours of getting it, but to be fair he shared). I told him due to the strike it would be longer than a week to get it back. I will see him at Kate's party weekend/Our annual stampede weekend in a couple of weeks so he'll get it then. I'm counting on having to refill it during the weekend...


  1. what a great idea! I'll have to file that in my head, and hope it doesn't get lost. lol

  2. and... does the "dad" just hang off the bottom? in the picture it looks almost like it's attached to the light blue too.

  3. Katie, the container is 5.3 cups/42.2oz/1.3L (according to the bottom). Just a little rectangle tupperware type thing. As for the Dad, it's part of the top part of the card (the "flap" that opens). Not attached to the light blue at all.


The fact that you take the time to leave me comments makes my day! Thanks for taking the time. I read every single one.
