For Father's Day I decided to alter my very first item: a formula can. :) I thought it would be a good container for the mini-album I made for my husband. I liked the idea of being able to treasure the container that we used to feed the baby as we celebrated the greatness of my husband's first Father's Day as a father. I found a list of things that could be added to the can in order to make it a genuine survival kit at the link labeled Inexpensive and Cute Ideas under the Scrappy Resources of this blog. It goes as follows:
Father’s Day Survival Kit
· Rubberband: Be flexible; things might not always go the way you want.
· Band-Aid: To heal hurt feelings, either yours or someone else's.
· Eraser: To erase the mistakes you will make along the way.
· Hershey's Kisses: for when you've given all of yours away and you need some back.
· Toothpick: Pick your battles; not every battle is worth fighting.Mini-Album: To remind you of all the special moments we have shared
My husband thought it was a great gift and I had a blast making it. :) I also had the opportunity of teaching a class on this project on June 14, 2008 at A Womb's View. All the ladies were able to walk out with a beautiful gift to give to the father's in their life, along with the knowledge of creating something easy and fun that they can apply to any other project. I am excited to say that the class was just the first of many that will be starting next month. I will keep you all updated as to what we do together and I will be posting the pictures of this first class soon. Maybe you can all join me for the next one.
