Six Pack of Sweets: Father's Day

DON'T FORGET: If you haven't entered my giveaway...there's still time!!

This past week the family went on a week vacation to my parent's house on the coast of North Carolina. Since we would be here the week before Father's Day, I thought I would go ahead and bring Poppa Ken his gift.
I saw these cute six packs floating around blog land last year, and wanted to try it out. Turns out...really easy...and I think it turned out pretty darn cute!
I kept a six pack of hard lemonade bottles and the container they come in. I peeled of the labels pretty easily, only having to use a little GOO GONE on a few tough spots. The new Father's Day labels were made just using Word, nothing fancy. I used a little spray adhesive (Elmer's) to attach labels to bottles. After priming the tops of the bottle caps, I sprayed them with black paint. There was a text to my mom to find out my step-dad's favorite snacks...then I filled the bottles up with the said snacks, and topped them off with the newly shinned up bottle caps.
(I kind of forgot to take pic's until AFTER my step-dad had gotten a hold of the snacks...that's why the bottles don't look super full.) :)
To cover the 6 pack container, just use some scrapbook paper or card stock. Measure the sides, cut, and again, use the spray adhesive.


The Six Pack of Sweets was topped off with a chocolate bar treat, thanks to The Idea Room printable.

Hope you all are thinking (and posting! ) of fantastic ways to show your hubz, pop, or friends
Happy Father's Day!
