Retro Father's Day Printables

I’m pretty convinced that the black hole in my dryer that chooses to eat our socks is the same hole that consumes “time”. Seriously, can you believe it is going on June already? That being said, it’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day and what to get good ol’ POPS! I’d thought it would be fun to design a printable to share. All you need to do is add some of these retro inspired soda labels to a few vintage pop bottles and you’ve got one groovy gift for daddy-o! {Okay seriously, how did people in the 50’s and 60’s take each other seriously talking like this?}



 Download labels here. You can print them on plain or self-adhesive paper.  There are 4 labels on each sheet and the labels are 3.5 x 5 inches in size, which should cover most average 12 ounce soda bottles.

Cut your labels and adhere to the glass bottle {You can remove the retail label with Goo Gone or do what I did and just place the retro labels right over them}. If you used regular paper instead of the self-adhesive paper you can adhere the label with double-sided tape.



Toss the soda bottles in a gift basket and make this present a little suh-weeter by adding some of Pops favorite retro candy treats.  You can continue to play on the dad theme by throwing in some Pop Rocks, Sugar Daddies, and Tootsie Pop suckers! Dad doesn’t have a sweet tooth? No problem, tie a gift card from his favorite hardware store or coffee shop onto the neck of the soda bottle.



Here are some of my favorite spots to pick up vintage soda:

World Market
Target
Whole Foods

I'd love to hear if you use these for your Pops or hubby!

Thank you so much for the awesome idea. My dad isn't much of a soda drinker, but my husband would love the customized labels. He's obsessed with different kinds of root beer.

And I totally know what you mean about the black hole that socks go into. I have a drawer of singles with no explanation.....grrr.
