DIY Father's Day snack pack

I’m surprisingly well prepared for Father’s Day this year. I’m not entirely sure how that came about, since I’ve been feeling particularly frantic lately, but then who am I to question such a formidable show of diligence (LOL!) – let’s just roll with it.

Truth be told, I’ve seen a bunch of cute stuff for Father’s Day on Pinterest in the past few days, and since I do so love a bit of customised stationery, I thought why not try a little something homemade for our own superdad. Treats were the first thing that came to mind because honestly, what dad doesn’t love a treat… and everyone loves a labelled jar, right? Or is that just me.

Anyway, I am digressing, as usual. The point is that I am here to share these free printable labels with you.

This free printable set of labels has been created in a such a way that you can either print them on card and use them as tags that are tied around the next of the jars with string, or you can print them on adhesive/label paper and stick them directly onto the container (my preferred option).

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • The free printable templates: energy drink labels | adhesive labels | tags
  • Card for tags / adhesive paper (or paper and glue) for labels
  • Scissors
  • For tags: single hole punch and string
  • Jars in varying sizes and shapes (keep them small-ish for snacks at work or on the go)
  • A variety of his favourite snacks (although raisins and nuts are kind of essential to some of the labels)

All that remains are four easy steps: Print, trim, attach and surprise dad!

Enjoy.

    • It's been a pretty slow weekend here. Hope yours has been chilled too?
    • On the blog this week, we are sharing some of our favourite digital art resources. During these times of restricted movement, it's more convenient than ever to be able to purchase artwork that can be downloaded, sent to print and frame via online framing specialists like @draftframes and delivered to your door. I'm all about the convenience factor here! Link in bio for some of our go-to's

    • I've been thinking about all the kids rooms we've designed and installed over the past few years, many of which had desks included. Unless they're kids in senior school, I usually view desks as a 'nice to have' addition if space allows. But I'm guessing those desks are getting a lot of mileage these days with Dubai schools continuing online learning until at least the end of the academic year. #crazytimes #stayhome #staysafe
    • A quiet afternoon was much needed to round off the weekend. Hope you all had a good one? Just peeking out on the left there is my new, improved @fronteriors Billy bookcase. More on that tomorrow.

    • She's been cursed with my coarse, wiry locks (that take 400 hrs to dry), if only I'd been blessed with that gorgeous colour. Suddenly wondering why I've never tried it. #hmm #maybe
    • I'm out of the house and in someone else's home and its feeling like a big adventure after so many weeks amidst the same walls. We are finally  starting to install the spaces we've designed for a family villa that we've been working on remotely for several weeks. Installation days are not what they used to be for us. This one is happening over a number of days. Fewer handymen and painters on site, masks, a safe distance and a whole lot of handwashing. Its feels strange but its definitely a step in the right direction.
    • The kitchen. It's always been the heart of the home, but over the past two months, it's been more of a command central in the home. All the cooking, baking, copious tea and coffee-making, school planning, live lesson participating, news watching (we have a TV room to the left), snack foraging.... you name it, it's been happening right here.

    • If you'd told me a few months ago that I'd spend 8 straight weeks within the confines of my home, leaving only a handful of times for essentials, I'd have laughed out loud. And that's coming from a real homebody. Life sure is unpredictable.
