Father's Day Gift Wrapping 101

My dad is a fishing guru. I am talking serious rod and reel obsession here folks! So I had the idea to have Hudson decorate a gift bag to hold all of his Father's Day goodies in.
Here's what we did:
1st I cut out a fish head and tail from some scraps of fun foam that I had. Then I glued them to a piece of card stock.

I handed over some paper circles cut out of magazines and scrap paper, as well as a glue stick to Hudson so he could glue on the "scales"

Once all of the scales were on we glued on some googly eyes. (Hudson originally wanted 3 eyes, but changed his mind once he saw how normal 2 look).

I cut around the edges and pasted our fine little fishy to the side of a gift bag. Voila! A cute and irresistible present just begging to be unwrapped.

I love it! My Dad is a huge fisher and this would be great for his Father's Day Gift! I will add this to our upcoming Father's Day Gift post, thanks for sharing it with us. Look for it on the 17th.
