Father’s Day Tie Treats
Ready to get started? Here is what you will need to create your very own Father’s Day Tie Treats!
You will need clear cellophane baggies. When I originally did this I think my bags were skinnier and I don’t think they had the expandable sides, but I used what I had and they turned out great.
You will also need some type of treat to fill your bags, tie knots (printable below), string, tape, and my Father’s Day Tie Treat tag (printable below).
To begin, grab your clear bags and the tape. To give your bag a tie shape, you will need to fold the bottom corners of the bag. Just take both bottom corner and fold them until they meet in the middle. Then add a piece of tape. And that’s it!
Now it’s time to fill those bags! I grabbed some taffy at the store, and thought it would be perfect for this project. But you could add any favorite treat of your choice.
Once you have filled it up, tie the top with some string.
I didn’t fill mine all the way to the top. I just added a few, tied it off and then trimmed the left over with scissors. Trimming the left over bag at the top will help the ‘tie knot’ to adhere better.
I also experimented a little with the bags that I had. Since they had the expandable sides, the ‘ties’ looked much wider. On one of the ‘ties’ I added a piece of tape onto the side of the bag, so the side couldn’t expand. Here’s a picture of one with the tape on the sides, and one without.
I guess one of them also has more taffy. If you can find the skinnier bags, I recommend using them, but if not, the other bags work just as well. 🙂
Now, you can dress up your tie by adding the tie knot! Print out my ‘Tie Knot’ printable, and cut them out. You could also cut out your own tie knots using some fun colored/patterned yardstick. One thing I did notice…I should have flattened the bottom of my tie knots. 🙂 At least that’s what I did before. But that’s an easy fix. Once you have your tie knots cut out, attach them to the tops of the bags using more tape or glue.
To go along with your Father’s Day Tie Treats, I came up with a cute little note that you could attach to each tie. Here is what the tags look like. There are 6 tags per sheet. I also included a tag without the ‘Dad’ just in case you’d like to use these fun treats for a Grandpa, Uncle or friend. Use the link below to print my Tie Knots and the Tie Tags.
What are you plans for Father’s Day? Or are you like me, and are just trying to get through the end of the school year. 🙂 I hope you enjoy my Father’s Day Tie Treats, and are able to use them. I would love to hear if you do, better yet, take a picture and tag me on Instagram or share it on my Facebook page!
