Father's Day FREE Printable from DearieDesigns

I love to design things on the computer.  At my old job, one of my fave parts was creating the brochures, postcards, and invites for the various ministries and events I worked with there. 
I generally use My Digital Studio for a lot of what I create.  However, due to the copyright laws from Stampin' Up, I am not allowed to sell [or give away free] a duplicate-able PDF.  I can create it on MDS, print it out, and mail it.  I may start offering themes and custom orders on etsy in the near future using this option.  Though using MDS, makes it much easier, it was also fun to do this from scratch.
I am weird like that. ;)
I have seen a lot of free printables on other sites so I thought I would create something for my readers {friends}, too.  I created the background design along with the actual items to punch or cut out on the computer, the Pages Mac program to be exact.  No one else's designs but mine.

Click to see full size and print.  Couldn't get it to post right from a pdf.
Please feel free to post on your blog, my friends, but have a link back to me, if you don't mind. :)

Supplies needed:
Sharp scissors, small preferred
Glue gun and toothpicks for the cupcake topper
straw or toothpick and a dab of hot glue for quick assembly
1 3/4 inch scallop circle punch or circle punch, string & skewers for the banner
Cake, cupcakes, pies or sandwich and a happy appreciated Dad!
Sandwich {or cake/pie} banner

Hope you can see how I split the skewer a bit, tied a know, and I added just a dot of hotglue for extra sturdiness.  I used fishing line.

Drink Flags

This is using a 2 3/8 scallop circle punch, which is slightly larger than I would suggest but my 1 3/4 scallop circle punch is missing.  Work with what ya got!

Other Options: 1 3/8 circle punch with the printables and the 2 3/8 scallop circle of deco paper OR{center} 1 3/8 circle of printable and 2 3/8 scallop circle punch of Chocolate Chip Cardstock.  The left and center picks have a finished look since the toothpick is in the middle of 2 pieces of cardstock. 

Hope your father or husband enjoys! 
I got the seal of approval from John, so I guess we are good!  ha
Let me know if you have any questions!
This sweet little boy turned one and his mama asked me to make the cake banner.  So you can see what you can also do with a custom order..
