Father’s Day Paint Swatch Card

Father's Day Paint Swatch Card | Our Rosey LifeHello!  Are you scrambling for a gift to give Dad this year for Father’s Day?  Well, look no further!  I’ve got an idea that’s precious, thoughtful, simple and inexpensive.

Last year, we made Mr. Rosey a Father’s Day paint swatch card.  I’d say it is his FAVORITE Father’s Day gift so far.  In fact, he keeps it in is bedside chest drawer, where he keeps other special mementos = treasured!

It was so easy and fun to make.  The Girlies and I went to Home Depot and they each picked out a handful of paint swatch cards.  To keep the overall card uniform, they had to pick from the same paint manufacturer and I helped them select colors that were complimentary.  Keep in mind the kiddos will be writing on the paint swatch, so you probably want to stay away from really dark colors.Father's Day Paint Swatch Card | Our Rosey Life

When we got home, they each wrote different sentiments with a Sharpie marker (so it didn’t smear) on each card.  Father's Day Paint Swatch Card | Our Rosey Life

Then we punched a hole at the top of each card, threaded a jump ring (which you can get at any office supply store) and tied on a pretty ribbon.  Even for Dad, a pretty ribbon makes all the difference (insert smiley face).  If you don’t have a jump ring, you can also thread some ribbon through the hole and tie a bow.Father's Day Paint Swatch Card | Our Rosey Life

And that’s it.  Precious – 100%!  Thoughtful – For sure!  Simple – Yep!  Inexpensive – Check!  The Girlies had fun making their Father’s Day paint swatch card and Mr. Rosey loved receiving it!
