Five Friday Favorites: Father’s Day!

I love these "Dad you're rad" gift labels. Found on The Proper Blog. image via The Proper Blog

Father’s Day will be here on June 19th this year, are you ready? Ummm. I’m not. I just realized I need to get on it and figure out what we will do this year. My usual birthday or Father’s Day fall back gift is a tower of local beer. I’ll probably go with that again… because he loves it. Ha!

So, just in case you’re not ready and need some Father’s Day gift idea help, I’ve gathered up Five Friday Favorites for Father’s Day.

My Favorite Free Dessert Dingbats and Fonts

My Favorite Free Dessert Dingbats and Fonts - THEPAPERMAMA.COM

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a font roundup. I LOVE font and there are a ton to find out in the internet world. Occasionally you do have to spend money for a pretty font, which is understandable, but sometimes there are some freebies to enjoy (for personal use only). Today I gathered up 8 of my favorite Free Dessert Dingbats and Fonts! All of these are for personal use, but you can purchase a commercial license if you need one. These foodie fonts will be fun to decorate any food gifts you plan on making this summer. How cute would that “JAM” jar dingbat be on your homemade jam? So cute. Enjoy!

1) PW Yummy Donuts Font: Cute font in donut shapes!

2) MTF Sweet Dings: Lots of yummy treats here.

3) ICHIGO Character Font: This font is mostly strawberry based images (all very cute), plus a couple of desserts.

4) Strawberry Font: Fruit is also a sweet treat!

5) Sugar Coma Font: All the sugary goodness you need, right here.

6) Cookie Dough Font: Yummy font in cookie shapes.

7) Kawaii Food Font: Yummy little cute treats with little faces.

8) Jenna’s Popsicles Font: Send your loved one a popsicle message.

If you’d like to wander my past favorite font posts, you can click here.

P.S. Just a note: all of these fonts are free, but most cannot be used for commercial-use (unless you purchase a license). They should all be fine for personal use, but don’t use them in any product you plan on selling. ALWAYS read the rules and regulations of each font you download. The rules are subject to change at any time, and I can’t guarantee these will still be free in the future. Again, always read the rules for each font you download. I always keep the font rules that come with my download, just in case I need it.
