Tutorial Tuesday-Father's Day Shirt and Tie Project

I probably should have titled this post something like What I'm doing instead of packing for the move in 4 days, or maybe What I'm doing now is way more fun than packing, but since it's Tuesday, a tutorial it is! This is a new project template that can be used in conjunction with the storage tins used for the Classy Dad Kit and the Tool Kit.

This free template has two options for you!

Here are the main items assembled to put together the kit. The free PDF template (see below for the download link), silver tin, a few coordinating papers, and don't forget the chocolate Riesens! Just cut out the pieces you'd like to use and you're ready to go!

This is my favorite part! If you use the pocket and handkerchief pieces don't forget to write a little note on the handkerchief to put in the pocket!

Wrap the Riesens in strips of paper for a fun treat inside!

Download the template and instructions by clicking here. Enjoy!

Happy Crafting!

Took Kit Project Tin

Here's the kit for those DIY dads! I had lots of fun with this kit! There's lots of little tool icons and the wood texture was fun to work with also. As with the release yesterday there's a standard version and a custom version which lets you type in all your own sentiments. All you need is candy, tins, and the kit! The both kits include two cards, the tin cover with three alternate sentiments, and one sheet of designed labels. You don't need any special photo editing software to add the text either if you purchase the custom one! I tried to make it super easy for you!

The labels are standard Avery 8160 series address labels. I printed the cards and tin front on shiny photo paper which looks really nice and professional in person!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway! See the post here for the details!


Tutorial Tuesday-Classy Father's Day Project

Woo Hoo! I'm so excited for this new project release! You remember the fun Valentine's Day Tin project? Well how about a Father's Day one? This 3 page PDF includes two cards, one tin cover with 3 alternate sentiments, and a full page of labels. I also found that the labels will go well over Reisen's as well as Hershey's Nuggets! All for only $3! (Don't forget to use the coupon code MOVE09 to get an extra 20% off!) The only thing the kit doesn't include are the tins which are available here. (The coupon code is good for those too!)

Lots of you requested a way to add or change the sentiments so I've made an extra special PDF for you! This PDF is exactly the same as the $3 one, but has text boxes in place of the sentiments so you can add whatever you'd like it to say! This kit is only $5 in the shop! You can print and change the text as much as you'd like! All you need is Adobe Reader. No other special software is required to type in the text.

This would be a great kit to buy if you'd like to use it for a birthday or thank you gift as well!

What if you're dad isn't and argyle and herringbone type of guy? Here's a sneak peek of another kit which will be released tomorrow for the handy dad!

And how about this? We'll do a giveaway because I LOVE doing giveaways! Here's what you'll win! You'll get the Custom Classy Dad Kit, and the Custom Tool Project Tin (tomorrow's release) and I'll send you two tins to make some with! That's almost $20 worth of product!
