Homemade Father's Day Gift Idea "Dad Is The Best"


A Pringles Can in disguise.  This is a really simple idea that I got from a good friend.  
Wrap a Pringles can with the printable wrapper included in this packet, 
attach the printable gift tag and surprise your dad by putting it on his desk.  
Option:  Dad might not like Pringles, so why not empty the can of Pringles and make 
his favorite cookies or treats and place them in the can. 
Dad won't even know that it was originally a Pringles can.  
Note:  Be sure to use the original flavor only.  Spiced Pringles don't mix very well with cookies or treats.
