Looking for the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for dad on your list? Look no further than this 6-pack filled with all of his favourite treats. This gift is fully customizable for both his tastebuds and his interests. Any guy would love to receive this 6-pack on Father’s Day.
You only need a few simple things to make this 6-pack snack pack:
- 6-pack of empty bottles with lids
- Fun paper
- Treats to fill each bottle
- Tape or glue (I used double-sided tape)
- Scissors/exacto knife/paper cutter (you can get by with just scissors)
I purchased the 6-pack from Michaels but I’m sure you can find something similar at just about any arts & crafts store. The set included the bottles in the carton. The lids were separate. I also picked up a pack of superhero-themed scrapbook paper. Here is where you can tailor the gift exactly to the receiver. They make scrapbook paper in every theme under the sun. If you are buying individual sheets of 12×12 paper, you will need 3 in total.
I suggest giving the bottles a rinse before filling them and allow them to dry completely. Once that is done, fill them up! My hubby has a major sweet tooth so all of the goodies fall into that category except for the peanuts. A piece of advice: make sure you buy things small enough to fit in the neck of the bottle. I bought some red berry gummies and they didn’t fit (this is the real reason there’s peanuts in here!). I included the peanuts, yogurt-covered raisins, m&ms, Skittles, jelly beans and Reese’s Pieces.
Set the bottles aside and open up the carton. If buying from a craft store, it should be designed to fully open. Measure your front panel (the piece with the superhero in my photo) and the centre piece with the handle. Mark the sizes on the back of your paper and cut them out. I also traced the handle hole onto the paper and cut out with an exacto knife. Once those are ready, stick them onto the surface with your adhesive of choice. Reassemble the box, pop in the bottles and voila!
