Free Printable Fathers Day Poems on Greeting Cards

This post for these Fathers Day Poems Cards contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

I wanted to use some cutesy lil' Fathers Day Poems on some type of printable this year...and a card seemed like the perfect spot. So, you know, I made three. I use the term Fathers Day Poems rather loosely...they're more like rhymes. But, that counts, right?

Father's Day Cards
I've been on a black and white card kick lately (remember my graduation ones and last week's Father's Day Frame cards?). But, I just had to make a few more for dear ol' dad. These sweet little Fathers Day Poems make the cutest black and white cards. There are three designs available for you below.

How to Make a Custom Table Runner

This Custom Table Runner Post is sponsored by Acorn.
All opinions are mine.

This fun custom table runner is unique because of its size...it's a miniature version. I designed it to use the "wrong" way on the table. And then I used three of them together to add some fun interest to a simple tablescape. See how to make your own mini custom table runner below.

Table Runner
This sweet little custom table runner is a quick sewing project. I did a bit of light quilting on mine, but nothing fancy. And the quilting part is totally optional. If you need a quick way to dress up your table, this is your ticket. AND...you'll never guess what my color palette inspiration for these was!

Man, I love a nice, ceramic blue and white planter.

So many of you have purchased more than one of these sets...it was time to make it a bit easier (and less spendy)! AND, you are actually getting both 8x10" and 5x7" sizes of each of these printables (with the exception of the Kids' Summer Reading Bundle, since it's not really for framing).
