Make Something Yummy for a “Father’s Day Gift” 4

fatherMake Something Yummy for a “Father’s Day Gift”

I lost my Dad when I was 17, so Father’s Day can be a sad day for me, sometimes.  I am blessed to have a wonderful husband, however, that I can celebrate being an amazing Dad to our son.  Like they say “Anyone can be a Father, it takes someone special to be a Dad!”, and that is my husband.  He is amazing at how he can have fun, while teaching our son life lesson’s.  He is leading him to be a Godly man one day, and that, in itself, is the most important.

Even though, I no longer have my Dad here on earth with me, I know I will see him again in heaven one day, and be able to celebrate all of the Father’s Days that we missed having together here on the earth.  Love you Dad!

I saw the recipes for this on Pretty Organized‘s website and thought they would be great to make and include in a gift basket for my husband this year.  He’s one that isn’t into sports (unless they have wheels) and never wears a tie – so most of the gift ideas you see are just not for him.  When I saw this, I figured he would love it and it would be something he would use and not just have in a drawer somewhere.

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on and share this #TBCCrafters craft!!

“Father’s Day Gift”

Materials/Tools Used: 

  • Glass Jars
  • Craft Paper
  • Cricut Explore
  • Food (Recipes Below)
  • Basket
  • Handkerchiefs
  • & Time!


I started by getting the ingredients together for the recipes (inserted below).  Once I had everything together, I was ready to go.  I used my Cricut Design Space to cut out and add the text to the labels for the jars.


Next, I used some Elmer’s craft tape to attach the labels to each jar.


Once I had the labels ready, I added them to each jar and the recipe to each corresponding piece.  After that, I used a handkerchief to jazz up a basket (note, the picture that shows the materials used has a different basket – I thought this one would work, but it was too small, so I had to use a different one that I had).


Once that was in, I put the jars inside, as well as some leftover jerky.  Hopefully my husband will like it for Father’s Day and you, who are reading this, enjoy it as well! 🙂


Please take a minute to leave me a comment and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc.  Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!

Mmm… who doesn’t love bacon? I agree that being a “Dad” is a special job. Glad to hear your kids have such a wonderful role model to help guide them through life. And now I have to ask, where did you find the adorable jars? I always have a hard time finding the right ones for my projects. 🙂
