A couple weeks ago I stumbled across an amazing project on Jordan Ferney's blog 'Oh Happy Day' (there are so many amazing projects on her blog, I highly suggest you check it out here): wrapping your father's day presents with a 'Hero' theme. Jordan designed an amazing array of stickers to match the various snacks and goodies she had bought for father's day and packed them all into a plain wooden box like a care package (see her post about it here).
I modified this plan a little bit, wrapping my gifts and snacks in brown craft paper (bought in a big roll for roughly $6 at Staples) and tying them with blue and white baker's twine. I tried to use as little tape as possible in order to keep the packages looking clean and crisp. Having bought a couple unique gifts for my Dad--a book of crossword puzzles, a book on heirloom tomatoes, a cd, and a set of Trader Joe's super absorbent wipes--I designed a new set of stickers to match Jordan's original design. I was pretty happy with how everything turned out and my Dad seemed to like them too. He almost didn't want to unwrap the gifts!

p.s. I almost forgot to write HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! I hope you all had a lovely weekend celebrating the dads in your life!
