Today we have a couple of quick, easy and WONDERFUL Father’s Day Gifts.
Here is a Quick and Easy Gift idea for Dad's Day! A Candy Bar Bouquet!
Dads don't usually like a bouquet of flowers...but they will certainly LOVE a bouquet of their favorite candy bar!
I used the brighter colors of the Hip-Hooray collection to accent the bright colors of my husband's favorite candy bars.
The Reeses Cups and the Mr. Goodbar "bouquet" will certainly bring a smile to his face on Father's Day!

This quick and easy father's day project doubles as a card if you choose to write messages on the green panels before adhering. This fun box uses 4 pieces of paper from the fabulous Lime Twist line.
To make this gift, cut 1 6x12 strip and 1 4x12 strip from the same paper (I used the multi-colored dot). The wider strip gets scored one inch from the edge of both sides of the shorter end. Both strips get scored into thirds on the long edge. Bend on all the creases. The widest strip should have 9 little boxes. Remove the small rectangles next to the center square so that the two squares on the ends have two flaps. I chose to cut 2 1x12 strips from a scrap I had, but you could also use the 2 inch strip left over from making the sides of the box. Both 1 inch strips get scored on the long edge at 1 inch, 5 1/8 inch, and the 9 1/4 inch marks. Fold on the creases and adhere the strips, using the 1 inch tabs to make a square. From a different paper (I used blue polka dots), cut a 3 1/4 inch strip. Cut this strip into fourths on the long edge so you have 4 boxes. From a new piece of paper (I used green stripes), cut a 3 inch strip and then cut it on the long edge every 2 3/4 inches so you end up with 4 boxes. Center the smaller boxes (green) onto the larger ones (blue) and adhere to the square made from the 1 inch strips (mine's orange). I made dividers for my cupcakes by cutting a 4 inch strip from a new piece of paper. I cut it into 3 4x4 boxes. 2 of these boxes get cut in half. Now you should have one box and 4 strips. The strips get a notch cut in the middle of the long side that goes just over halfway through the paper. the strips slide together to make dividers. The square goes in between the dividers to make space for 8 mini cupcakes. Use a hole punch to make 2 holes for handles (see picture). I used two pieces of tulle so I could tie bows on the end. Place cupcakes in the box in between the dividers (see below for the most delicious and quickest recipe), fold up the sides of the box, and place the 'strip square' around the box to hold it together.
1 box of vanilla cake mix
