A Father’s Day Gift Idea for the Gardening/Yard Dad

And what dad isn't involved in at least a little bit of gardening or yard work?  This is a Father's Day gift the children can make with some adult supervision by Mom.  Buy some roof flashing at a home improvement store, cut it out with your big shot and an appropriate die and then hang on a stake of some sort.

This is one of my photos from the San Antonio Regional back in January where I learned to make these. As you can see, you can cut out most anything with your Big Shot and then punch a hole and hang it and stick it in the yard or in a pot of flowers or a plant.  Perhaps it will even scare off the squirrels from the garden….that's what we're trying to do in our garden!  But it is pretty and eye-catching no matter what!  The flashing has sharp edges until you run it through the Big Shot so you do need to be careful if children make this for Dad.  Use your imagination!  Once you make one I bet you'll have to make more!
