Creative Father’s Day BBQ Ideas

Does your family have a father’s day tradition? For us, in most years, involves a BBQ dinner with delicious foods, outdoor games and great company.

As a simple gift giving idea, we created these BBQ seasoning mix jars using our Cricut Joy and a custom grill master cutting file available to you as a FREE download. Filling the mason jars with store-bought seasoning mixes as well as some homemade tomoto seasoning and adding the personalized images in vinyl will help to make the next Father’s Day an extra special one.
