No Dads Allowed {What I Made for Father's Day}

If you are my dad, my husband, or my father-in law, stop reading.


OK, now that that's taken care of, here is one of the Father's Day buckets that 
I concocted for each of the dad's in my life.

I bought 3 buckets at Michael's for $1 each and used my handy dandy Silhouette
to print the "World's Best Dad" sticker out of vinyl.

Here's a closer look at some of the ingredients inside the bucket:

I tried to create a theme relating to dads:
"pop chips"- I found these at Meijer
Pop Rocks
Life Savers
Mr. Goodbar
Sugar Babies- this one I'm only putting in Wes's bucket,
along with a label that says
"Thanks for helping to create such a sweet baby."
Cheesy? Maybe.
True? Yes.

Above are the labels that I added to a few of the items,
tying them into the father's day theme.
Again, cheesy, I know.
What can I say? I like a little cheese. :)

I was hoping to find "Dad's Rootbeer"
but since I couldn't find that brand,
I found these labels and just covered the root beer bottles
with them.

The travel mugs that I am putting in the buckets
are the kind with inserts that you can decorate.
Here are the photo collages I made that will
decorate the mugs:

Now I just need to figure out the best way
to print them since they are an odd size (4 x 8).
Any suggestions?

Happy nesting,
and happy father's day to any dads out there
(though I don't suspect there are too many of you
reading this)!

P.S. Sorry for the poor quality of some of the pictures!
My camera got thrown into the shower
by my little walking tornado :)
