How To - Make a Candy Bar Card - Happy Father's Day!


Dear Friends,


I want to show you the card my children made for Father's Day. It is called a candy bar card. I bought quite a few candy bars and packaged candy with names I thought we could use for the card. The three children worked together and this is what they came up with. Note, you can always cover up letters you don't need and add letters to the front or end of a candy bar name.

The card reads: "Dear Mike (Mike and Ike Candy) and Dad, Even though you are a (Nerd) you are full of (Smarties). We think you are an (Extreme) (Lifesaver). Mom thinks you are a (Big Hunk) and a (Sugar Baby). You are a (Bounty) of fun and worth more to us than (100 Grand). You're a (Whooper) of a good dad. You're everyone's (Mr. Goodbar). We love you (Now and Later). So here's some candies including your favorite (Reeses). Happy Father's Day. Love, Mom, Tim, Katie and Emily

This was a favorite Father's Day gift for Mike.  He LOVED it.

Very Cute! I have done it in the past for a sweetest day card- but didn't think about doing it for Father's Day. Thanks so much for the inspiration :)

I also made some home-made Father's Day gifts on my page this year! They are way better then something from the store.

Hi! I found you over at Finding Fabulous.
What a great idea! While we were on vacation a tree in our yard fell....and our sweet neighbors chopped it up and hauled it off for us. We were wanting to get them something. We can modify your idea for a Thank You card for them. Thanks for sharing.
