“Love You to Pieces” DIY Father’s Day Gift

My husband’s favorite candy are Reese’s Pieces and peanut butter cups. Every year on his birthday and Father’s Day, the kids give him a pack of Reese’s, which he always enjoys. This year, I thought we could make him a special bag to hold the Reese’s Pieces to switch things up. Using a white favor bag, scrapbook paper, and a free printable I was able to make a “Love you to pieces” gift in under 15 minutes.

To make the love you to pieces gift, Download and print the “Love you to pieces” Sillhouette file. I glued the printable tag onto the bag, but you could also use a clothespin or baker’s twine to attach it.

    Hi Sarah- I tried to DL the link to the file for the Love you to Pieces and it says it cannot be opened? I Just wanted to make sure that on your end its ok, maybe its my computer? Ok thanks!

      Hi Juliet! The love you to pieces cut file is only downloadable if you have a Silhouette and Silhouette software. It is in the Silhouette format (.studio) so it will not open computers without the software. If you do not have a Silhouette, I would suggest hand cutting a paper banner and hand writing the love you to pieces message. Hope that helps!
