Weekend Pajama Party: Father's Day Soda "Pop"

Happy Father's Day!
Father's Day is a fun excuse to spoil your dad, husband, brother...you get the drift. I decided to treat my dad to a box full of goodies along with some of these cute soda "Pop" root beer bottles.
I cut out 3x8 inch strips of paper and glued them around the middle of the root beer bottles and then lined them with ribbon.  I used my Cricut for the circle and the word "Pop".  I got a template for the mustaches HERE!
Every dad is #1, right? 
I know mine is!
Why not tell him with this cute award ribbon?  If you haven't made any of these paper rosettes, you need to.  Now.  They're seriously so easy and so, so, so cute!  Click HERE for a tutorial.  You will thank me later....I promise.  :)
Okay, here's how I made bedazzled the cute box.  I went to my favorite thrift store, Deseret Industries, and I'm pretty sure I bought someone's 7th grade shop class project for $1!  You can't beat that.
 I painted it with Krylon's Pumpkin Orange first, but it was super ugly so I painted it with Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze.  I still hated it, so I sanded the edges to distress it, and, HELLO!, the orange came through and I loved it!  Accidents like that are the best. 
Then I added some more cutie patootie rosettes...(yep, I just said that)

and loaded it up with some of his favorite treats!
I added my dad's favorite saying with vinyl lettering, "This is Livin'". 
He was a big fan! :)
I hope the guys in your life had a fabulous Father's Day too!

Keep making the world a cuter place!
Have fun!
