Happy Father's Day // Handmade and Locally Made...

Hello there,

I hope your day is treating you well. 

Today saw me get into a slight panic about 'What on earth I'm going to get my father and my babies daddy, for Father's Day!'. Although I still haven't quite worked this one out, it did make me hunt around for some local handmade items. My search unveiled some of the most marvellous cards and prints. So I've gathered a few together for you...check them out at the links below.

1. 'ROARsome Bamboo Wood Card' - $14.95 from The Little Card Boutique
2. 'New Dad Card' - $5.45 from Able and Game
3. 'Father's Day Fist Pump Card' - $4.99 from Beccy Kitty Designs
4. 'Father's Day Super Hero Custom Portrait' - $70.00 from The British Rule
5. 'Custom Father's Day Cards' - $10.00 from muska & elvis
6. 'Funny Father's Day Cards' - $4.50 from Sammie English Art

Keep in mind these are all local and handmade cards/prints. Many can be customised to the wording of your choice, be it for Dad, Pop or Granddad. This is just a taste of what these lovely makers have to offer. 

Right, that's cool card found, now what to put with it..... lotto tickets maybe!? You never know ....

Oh and spoiler alert... If you pop back in a day or two, one of these makers has created an exclusive FREE Father's Day printable for all PMB readers :)

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
