Happy Father’s Day! Growing up, I remember my mom putting together the cutest themed gift baskets for all occasions. She loved to pick a theme and go all out! I couldn’t wait to start this tradition with Dottie and I knew a Father’s Day gift basket would be the perfect start! Trey loves to grill (especially in the summertime) so I used the Cricut Joy to create a personalized grilling gift basket.
The Cricut Joy is am portable cutting machine that can link to your phone or computer to design unlimited creations. I used the Cricut Joy to personalize gifts made of a variety of materials such as fabric, wood, and glass!
First up, I used the Cricut Joy and the Smart Iron-On material to create a custom decal for an oven mitt. It was so easy, honestly the hardest part was choosing a font because there were so many! I used the Easypress mini iron to secure it to the mitt and it turned out great!
Next, I used the Smart Vinyl permanent to create a custom message on a mini cutting board. I added “Happy Father’s Day” and “love, Dottie” on the board for a personal touch. The Cricut weeder and scraper tools came in handy for removing the unwanted vinyl from the decal and pressing it into the board.
Next, I filled a small glass jar with his favorite spice rub. The Smart Label writable vinyl and the 0.4mm pen worked perfectly to create a custom label. It was so easy, now that I see how great the labels stick to glass jars, I am tempted to re-label my entire spice rack!
Lastly, I added in some grilling tools like a spatula and baster brush, a cookbook, salt & pepper shakers. I decided to use a galvanized bucket instead of a traditional basket to give it a more masculine touch.

It was so fun to create Dottie’s first themed gift basket and carry on my mom’s tradition. The Cricut Joy made it easy to add personalized touches customized for the occasion. I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day and thanks so much for reading!
