fathers day treat

DH was desperate for a gift for his dad and decided on an Arch Card as his dad goes to McD's everyday for a soda while he reads the paper. I hadn't made a card for him as I'm pretty sure that DH specifially said not to, but that's another story.... When I needed a way to present the gift card, I thought red and yellow (new crushed curry to be exact). Then, my thoughts turned to McD's and what else.... french fries! I had the template for this fry box and decided to give it a whirl. I printed the template onto a piece of real red, cut it out and taped it together - easy peasy! Then to bring in some of the yellow (crushed curry). I used my word window along the straight edge of a piece of paper and cut random widths and angles and attached them to a piece of scrap paper, then inside the box. The gift card is in the bag of chocolates inside the fry box. He seemed to like it and my kids were impressed :)
