father's day shirt goodie bags

hello folks!
man i have been slacking on this blog lately...

not intentional though, 
as i put together a reunion for about 
35 of my closest sister pals,
and one of these days 
i will share the big party with you all.

for now though, it's dad's day coming up 
so i better get on the ball already.

here goes a really quick craft you can do 
in less than 5 minutes-yippee!
so whaddya think of these bags?
i had a bunch lying around and 
they reminded me of shirts.
i have no idea why.
anyway,here's all you need:
you can get the bag here but know 
there are different colors and designs all over 
amazon and at party and craft stores too.
i got the buttons at target's dollar spot
and the bows at hobby lobby for 50% off.

 ok let's start:

now all you have to do is fill them up!
which is the hardest part since gifts for guys are 
soooooooo b-o-r-i-n-g!!!
i know my hubby would like a new engine for his race car which means i will have to look for an XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL bag.
oh and an extra extra extra extra extra exra extra large bow to go with it.

oh gosh! i'll need the buttons too...
well, think i'll just make him some cookies, 
stuff it in the bags, and call it a day.

i think he'll be alright with that.


  1. This is the most clever idea for dad I have ever seen!!! And to top it off, it's so simple and can be done in a snap, you are a creative genius!

    1. ooohhhh mmyyyy!! THANK YOU Kim! i need to simplify my brain as it over thinks a lot of times and tends to make complicated crafts. in other word, i need to be more simple-minded eh? lol ;)

  2. These are the cutest goodie bags ever! I love the bow ties and the buttons!!
