I don’t know if it’s the warm weather, that my husband doesn’t have a job and I’m stressing over it, or that I’m just not motivated, but boy, I’ve sure been having a hard time being creative lately. I sit down to create and it seems to take me for.freaking.ever to get a project done, then take the pictures and get it posted. It shouldn’t be this hard! So bear with me over the next while and I’ll do my best to get project shared with you. 😉 Even though I’ve been having a hard time creating, I was able to sit down and put this cute little Father’s Day Garland together, and I adore the way it turned out. It’s the perfect decoration for Father’s day. You can hang it as a banner or use it on a serving table for a Father’s day get together.

Father’s Day Garland Supplies:
- Custom Tee Stamp Set
- T-Shirt Builder Framelits Dies
- Classic Stampin’ Pads (I used a variety of colors)
- Cardstock (I used a variety of colors)
- Clear Block C
- Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine
- Mini Clothes Pins
Stamp your images onto the cardstock that you’re using. These stamps were so fun because I was able to place the t-shirt image on the block at the same time as the shirt stamp and stamp them together. The little lines on the sleeves had to be stamped separately, but that was so easy to do because the stamps are clear!
I also stamped some shirts onto the white. I love that I can create a dress shirt with this set. I stamped all the images I needed to create the dress shirts, and then cut them out so I could use the framelits on them.
I used my Cuttlebug machine to cut the stamped images with the framelits. This is my very favorite thing to do with the Cuttlebug! (I would recommend the magnetic platform for this, it would make it 10 times easier!)
Once all of the dress shirt parts are cut out, use your adhesive to put them together.
Once you have all of your shirts made, use the thick Baker’s Twine and small clothes pins to put your garland together.
I knew I wanted to hang mine on my self, so I spaced them accordingly, but they are super easy to move since it’s the clothes pin holding them on.
I love the way this little banner turned out, don’t you? I used a punch, and punched out some little banner flags out of the same colors as the shirts, and hung it with it. I felt like the shirts hanging by themselves, needed a little something more.
Look how cute all of these shirts are!
The clothes pins are the perfect way to hang these too, right?
Where would you use this cute little banner for Father’s Day?
I’ve currently got it hung on my self. I’m trying to make my shelf look a little masculine, but I’m not totally sure it’s working for me. What do you think?
