so, i was making my patriotic banner when i realized i was skipping a holiday that must never be skipped!
father’s day!
here is a free printable father’s day banner for you.
i think i will even tie mine to rootbeer bottles like this one here
i cut mine to the edge and just folded over the top so it could hang on wire,
but i’m sure there are lots of better ways…

the full banner says “happy father’s day”,
but i have a tiny mantle.

then i put some of my baby daddy’s favorite things on the mantle.
admittedly, it looked a lot cuter in my head….
hey, i design. you can decorate.
and yes, i know that is just a shelf.
but it’s doubling as a mantle just fine!
these are in separate files because they are so large.
if you hang them up in your house, 
please come back and leave me the link on this post 
so i can see!
it won’t take much to look cuter than this…

{edited for 2013, the new post with a new link to a tie banner in different colors is

oh, and as i was posting this, noticed that rosemary posted the
cutest printable father’s day card on her site.
