Father’s Day Projects


Create this fun “mock” bait box.  It is made out of a 7″ square paper mache’ box that was purchased at Walmart.  It is simply covered with a wood patterned paper.  The “Bait” jars are old baby food jars that have been filled with goodies such as swedish fish, gummy worms, and gold fish crackers.  Click on the photo to download the instructions and labels.  TIP:  The Labels were printed on a solid olive green paper.  Just cut down a 12X12 solid sheet to 8.5X11 and run it through your printer.  The first page is just instructions so you can print that on white.  The labels are on the 2nd and 3rd page.


These Retro soda bottles were created out of an old 6 pack of IBC soda bottles.  Take Dad back to a time when “Father Knew Best”.  Fill each jar with his favorite goodies.  Simply click on the photo to download the instructions and project pieces.  Tip:  print onto off-white paper.  Linen or textured cardstock looks the best.


Give Dad a gift he can use out on the course.  Create this adorable golf score card matchbook.  Each score sheet has a fun quote just for dad.  Simply click on the photo to download the instructions and project pieces.  Tip:  Print on off-white paper for best results.

Dad is “T”-rrific!  Let him know just how much.  Create this fun golf tee jar out of an old Ragu’ sauce jar and fill it with golf tees that have little messages written on the sides of each tee.  For the instruction sheet simply click on the photo.  Tip: project shown was printed on off-white paper.

    I absolutely LOVE all of your wonderful projects and the fact that you share your talents with all of us and offer the free downloads for us to use. It’s so generous. I also LOVE the new website. I made this project for my husband and he loved it. What a clever idea. Keep doing what you do best. Thank you for all of your hard work!!

    I really love this idea! My son has a male teacher this year and I think this would make an awesome gift for him. However, I have one question, could be a little silly, but how do you put the lids back on the bottle? Wouldn’t the shape be deformed when you first open the bottle? I am very new to crafting so please excuse me if this is silly or stupid!:))

    I am talking about the IBC Soda bottles.

    lol NOT stupid at all. Infact, when I started working on the project I realized the same thing. I have a bottle opener that twists the tops off (by Pampered Chef). It worked great. You could also carefully pry it up all the way around and that works too. If you have any other questions please let me know. No question is too stupid : )

  7. Heather Says:

    I am trying to click on the golf bottle idea to print out the instructions and the template you have made for the front of the jar, but it doesn’t do anything when I click on it like it says to do. Can I get the instructions and template somewhere else on your website. Thanks

  8. Kristine McKay Says:

    Hi Heather, I just tested it and it seemed to work. Do you have a pc or a mac?

  9. Kim Says:

    I love these! I don’t know which one I’ll use yet, but Father’s Day this year will be very fun with these gifts! Maybe this will give me ideas for several years!
