{everyday party} a father's day pack-a-picnic... 11 Jun 2012


With Father's Day just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to make some pack-a-picnic cutlery pouches for having a day of fun in the sun with your favorite guy. It's also fun and easy way to display cutlery at other outdoor events—whether you have a set at each place setting, in a basket on a table, or in a picnic basket camped out in the grass...
