Father's Day Gifts From Kids: Fancy Pants

I love watching the relationship between my Dad and my son.  For Father's Day, I wanted to give my Dad something personal from Cory, who is 4.  I did an interview with Cory, asking him some simple questions about my Dad, who he calls Pop Pop. 




I typed my questions and Cory's answers into a Word document than ran a piece of patterned paper through the printer. 


I love this cute paper from Fancy Pants Designs. The colorful hats on this notebook paper from the Swagger line were perfect. I topped the page with felt bow tie, also from Swagger. 



I thought I would add one more simple gift.  Cory loves gummy worms and Swedish fish and my Dad always has them on hand. They are the first thing Cory asks for when he visits.  



For this project, I used a small craft paint can, filled it with gummies and added a bit of decoration, also by Fancy Pants Designs. The sentiment says: My Pop's a great catch!  The cute fishie paper, polka dot tag and crab flair from the Down by the Shore collection were perfect!



Last year, Cory gave Dad a cute handprint hanging that Dad still has displayed in his office, so I have an inkling that Pop Pop will like these too.
