Father’s Day Goody Box and Treats

Can’t think of what to get or make Dad for Father’s Day? How about a themed box of treats, or replace the goodies with any small gifts. I used fabric with an “outdoorsy” theme to cover  this box, but there are also lots of different, typical, Dad-themed fabrics and gifts wraps which could also be used.

Found One!

Step Two: Cut your fatheresque fabric or wrapping paper the proper size for covering both the lid and the box.FullSizeRender_10

Step Three: Spread glue (regular school glue works perfectly) over the box and lid. Spread it evenly with a paint brush or popsicle stick to avoid the blobby glue marks that I ended up with on my box! I rushed it a little….

Before applying the glue permanently, cut the excess fabric from the corners to avoid extra bulk at the corners.FullSizeRender_8

Step Four: Smooth it all down and wait for it to dry.IMG_0542

Step Five: Bake these sugar cookies:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Cream butter until soft. Add sugars and mix well. Blend egg and vanilla into mixture. Mix dry ingredients and blend them into mixture.

Chill mixture in fridge over night.

Roll dough out on floured surface and cut with themed cookie cutters. If you do not have shapes appropriate for your them, use a cup to cut out a ball (for example, use a shot glass to cut out golf balls). I used a moose and tree for my outdoorsy theme.
