heres a fathers day party centerpiece and gift all in one

I hope you like my fathers day old time fish basket. I tryed to make it look as real as possible.
I love to decorate for every party occassion so no better time then fathers day. I thought this would be so neat on the table its filled with gummy worms, corks, and lures for dad
I will give you complete directions at the bottom of this post. I hope you find inspiration in our new blog for those partys for your children, husbands, holidays and so on.

this is the back of the basket, sorry lighting a little dark couldnt get it!

here is a side view of the basket you can see it is filled with goodies.

heres a lighter version of the front. We will be starting with our new blog soon. read about it under guest designer. now on to the instructions so you can make one for your dad or just a fishing guy or gal.

instructions for fathers day fishing basket

start with a strong box. cover the entire box. then cut three sides leaving back side to flip up so you can glue your lid on it.

use everyday paperdoll the fisherman the basket on there I cut mine at 8 in but it does depend on your box size you will least need to cut 4 so you can cut parts and pieces to piece together.

now cut strips I used my paper cutter faster. then glue strips across all the parts then distress with ink now add strips up and down and distress these also now you are ready to glue onto your box and add details.

thats it simple , so neat for dad, and filling it with goodies is endless. I will make one for each one of the dads and we usually have a party for dad every year. so this will be fun might even stick in a gift card. now hope you join in on the fun.
