If you have a man on your gift list, here is a cute way to wrap a gift with little expense and lots of fun!
Total Time: Less than half an hour
Yield: As many as you have bags to fill
- Google eyes or a pen to draw eyes onto bag
- bags or envelopes the size of the gift you will be wrapping
- mustaches- I use ones downloaded or prepackaged. You may also draw them on, if you prefer.
- Wrapping paper for the tie. If you don't have that, use contact paper or draw a pattern onto the bag or envelope.
- Glue- I used a hot glue gun, but any glue with work.
- Glue eyes onto bag or envelope. (I have shown one option for each.)
- Adhere mustache.
- Make tie pattern. I got out a tie and traced around the top and bottom.
- Paste tie on.
- You are now finished decorating your bag.
- For future use, place the tie pattern and leftover wrapping paper in a clear bag for future use. You might even throw in some google or wiggle eyes!
Create a special gift bag for Dad and fill with homemade treats, something salty and something sweet, for a gift he'll love.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
- white lunch bag
- craft glue
- two small shirt buttons
- scrap of fabric
- piece of card stock or cardboard
- pen or pencil
- Cut about a 2 inch slit down from the top edge of the lunch bag.
- Fold each side back and glue into place. This will resemble a shirt collar.
- Glue a small shirt button on each corner of the flaps that were glued down.
- Draw a tie onto a piece of cardboard and cut out.
- Using the tie pattern, trace around it onto a piece of fabric (plaid works well to resemble a tie). Cut out the fabric tie and glue down center front of bag.
- Write the following poem on the back of the bag: "Dad, I think you are so sweet, the very salt of my earth. So here is a tasty treat, for only a fraction of your worth. It's just a little way to say a very HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!"

Very clever idea! My husband doesn't like ties, but this could bring a smile, especially if there's NOT an actual tie as a gift. =) We were going to reuse a gift bag we made before (see photo), but the tie bag is appealing too...
