Tool Time Tuesday...Father's Day Gift Wrap

Father's Day this year is Sunday, June 17th.

No matter what dads receive for Father's Day, the gift wrap is probably the last thing on their mind...unless it looks like this!

A useful apron from Home Depot (or any hardware store), brown craft paper, paint chips and ribbon or string.

"Brown paper packages tied up with string...these are a few of my favorite things."

I know you're singing it your head right now!! Lol

Just tuck the presents into the apron...

and fold the apron in half...you will use the strings to tie it up.

To make a free quick card, I used paint chips that I've saved after we've had a painting project and stick on letters.

Have the kids make the card and they can sign it on the bottom color or on the back!

Use the apron strings to tie up the apron in half.

The apron can fit two or more packages on both sides.

Not bad for a 77 cent apron and a free paint chip!! Yes these aprons are 77 cents. Click HERE for a girlie version I made a long time ago

You know all Dads will love this!!

Have a great Tuesday,

I've got a gardening apron on my to do list and I could quickly cross it off. :) My husband loves the comics from the Sunday paper and I like to wrap his presents with that but it can leave ink on your fingers. Karen you're so smart thanks for the inspiration!
