Have a TIE-riffic Father’s Day!

Last year I created a whole Father’s Day Celebration around the stereo-typical tie theme, and I blogged about it for the Fave Crafts blog.  You can read the post here, and download their free e-book here that includes some of my instructions, and more great ideas from other bloggers.  Here are a few pictures of the many ties seen around Father’s Day, last year.
Banner (I suggested that this could be made from real ties and recently stumbled on someone somewhere in blogland that did that.  Anyone have the link?)
Tie-shaped pancake breakfast
Fun Father’s Day napkin fold
Great gift-wrapping…
…and gift!
This photo tie came from “The Picture People.”  And it was a Father’s Day gift for my husband, one year.
I’ve seen similar ties available at many photoproduct sites.  My Father-in-law is a doctor, and has gotten great use out of the photo ties we have given him.  I’m working on other fun Father’s Day posts for next week.  Have you got some fun ideas to share?  I may have a linky party–get ready.

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up party!
