Just Us Girls {3-D/TEMPLATE} Challenge #86

Hello, my friends.  I took a short, unintentional break last week from both JUGS and the CTD, but I'm back today with the Just Us Girls challenge (JUGS86), sponsored by sweet, Andrea.  She challenged us to make a 3D project or template for Father's Day.  Easy, right?
I threw mine together fairly quickly for me.  I decided to use Lauren's Barrow of Blooms for my Father's Day template, and I filled it with dark chocolate Lindor truffles.  I used my MTME Autumn Leaves Collection 2 paper to decorate my side panels, and SU River Rock cs as my base.  I created my label cutting out my MTME Trendy Tags #4 cut file and layering my digital sentiment from the MTME For Dad set. 
There are a ton of different ways to format and print digi stamps, but I tend to use Microsoft Word for mine.  It's very easy to import the picture, crop and resize using the Format function.  I'm very familiar with graphic design programs, but Word is what I like to call "simple-stupid", digi stamps for dummies :]  Perfect for this tired mind...  I'll show you another card with a digi sentiment this weekend that shares a few other options when working in Word.
I cut out an MTME Oak Leaf cut file to use as a tag for my bag of truffles.  I tied it down with a button and some black hemp twine.
That's really all there was to my project!  I will post my very late JUGS and CTD cards this weekend sometime...they're both finished, I just need to share them :]  Be sure to swing by the rest of the DTs' blogs for some fun Father's Day projects!  You'll just love what they've come up with!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you have a safe, relaxing, LONG Memorial Day weekend.  If you watch the National Memorial Day parade this weekend, keep an eye out for me ;]  I'll be marching ♥

Awesome use of the template to make a little something for the guys in our lives. A wheelbarrow full of treats would make any dad smile.
