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.

    Love it! My husband told me all he wanted for father's day is a tie… I might just have the energy to incorperate some of these ideas… esp. the tie pancakes- we love shaped pancakes!

  18. Kendra,
    I LOVE all the Father’s Day ideas! Do you have a tie template for the “Happy Father’s Day” banner? Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  19. Thanks for the reminder to check my own lists. I’ve been sick this week, and haven’t done what I planned though I do need to make sure I have all the ingredients.

  21. Hello everybody. I’m quite new to 3d printing and I have a lot of questions on the matter, so I hope you will not get mad at me for asking here at least couple of them. I think even before I’ll get seriously into sculpting I should focus on the software I’m going to use, and that’s what I would like to ask you about. Mainly, should I look for the most simple and crudest program there is or would it be better to look for something more complicated? I’m worried that I’ll get some unwanted habits while working on less complex software. Right now I am using some online software called SelfCAD (I didn’t have to download anything). I’ve read some good opinions about it, but maybe you could share yours as well? The second question is about the program as well: should I search for CAD software that would let me design and slice it in it, or should I use a different software for each of them? The one I’m suing allows me to do both i it. Does it even make a difference? Surprisingly, I couldn’t find the answer to that, as it seems like most blogs want to focus on the very basics (like what is 3d printing and so on), and while the answers to those questions are fine, it seems like no one wants to go into the details (it looks like some of them even plagiarise each other! I swear I’ve read the same answers to the same questions on at least 3 different blogs) but I’m getting off-topic… The last question is about 3d pens. Would it be possible to somehow convert whatever I draw with a 3d pen to a 3d model in a program? For example, if I’ll draw a horse with 3d pen, would it be possible to get its outline in a program? I’m not sure how that would even work, but the very idea sounds interesting to me. Anyway, I think I’ll stop here just in case no one will ever answer me and all of this writing will go to waste. I apologise that I’m using your content to ask questions, but I hope you’ll understand and help a newbie like me. Anyway, thank you for posting. I learned something from this and that’s always appreciated. Thank you, and I hope to hear back from you very soon 🙂
