I love the little paint cans (you can buy them new at Lowe’s). They are absolutely perfect for a little “gift basket”, especially for Father’s Day! With a little washi tape, you can spruce up the can in seconds! I just wrapped a piece of silver & white striped washi around the can for a little extra pizzazz! Still “manly”, but makes it just a bit more fun!Then, we filled it with Almond Joy and Riesen candies! Why those? Well, they happen to be a couple of favorites of my dad. Plus, you can make such a cute little candy card with them! I attempted to go the printable route, but was having technical difficulties and then discovered that our printer had no more colored ink. Gah! So, an old-school, handwritten note will have to do. But, I think it turned out cute! It was a throw back to my childhood days. My best friend and I used to make candy cards for like every occasion! 😉 It’s fun coming up with clever/creative ways to incorporate the candy names into what you want to say. So, it worked perfectly to say that “it’s a joy to have a grandpa like you for so many Riesens”! 😉 The great thing about this too is that you could easily adapt it for anyone (and other holidays/occasions)! Candy cards are super simple, yet sweet and fun!
Happy Father’s Day!!
