Vintage Post: Father's Day Banner and a Craft Fail

Hello, Friends!  I hope all is well!  With Father's Day right around the corner, I thought I would share a vintage Crafts & Sutch post.  This is a sweet way to honor all the dads on their special day...and get a jolly good laugh!

Have you ever had a bad craft day?  Well, I had one today and I have to tell you, it's not so much fun.  This post will make you laugh and cry...from laughter!

I made this super cute bracelet last night!

Totally FUN, right?  So I woke up and started working on another one for a tutorial.  Well, it was a colossal bust...literally.  It busted open.  See.

So needless to say, I took a brake from the fabric covered bracelet.  It is salvageable, and there will be a tutorial...some day.  :)

On to craft project number two, a banner for Father's Day!  It's Keith's first Father's Day and I wanted to make it really special!  I thought an "I love Daddy" banner would be perfect!  Then I had a stroke of genius!  I thought, "Why don't I make this two-sided?"  I decided to put I "heart" Daddy on one side and Freedom on the other.  I "heart" Daddy can hang until Father's Day and Freedom could be displayed for the rest of June and early July.  Holy cow!  What a great idea!  See take a look.


And now here's the other side.

My stroke of genius turned into a very, ugly blond moment.  :)  Freedom turned into Modeerf...not really a patriotic word.  When you put the start of one word on the back of the start of the second word (does that make sense), it doesn't work out so well.  :)  I can laugh about it...now.

I will definitely attempt the two-sided banner again because it is pretty fantastic.  I'll just be more careful next time!  My day wasn't a total bust.  The I "heart" Daddy banner turned out perfect and I learned a GREAT lesson!  :)  LOL!
