Happy Father’s Day

For Father’s Day, I wanted to do something a little different. So, like I do with many of my projects, I combined products from several different companies to come up with a unique Father’s Day “Card.”

I started with the Lifestyle Crafts Folder with Insert die. I used Real Wood Paper by Creative Imaginations to keep it masculine. I folded on the scored lines and added a bit of Distress Ink to the edges. Then, I used Memory Book Glue Dots to adhere the pieces together, making a little folder with pockets. Memory Book Glue Dots are perfect for this project because they are so thin, you don’t even notice they are there.

Next, I stamped the image (Crafty Secrets) on Cryogen paper, using Memento Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used Memory Book Glue Dots to adhere it to a piece of cardstock and then to adhere that to the cover.

I added Robin’s Nest Dew Drops with Micro Glue Dots. They fit perfectly and hold great.

Inside, I handcut a cardstock liner to serve as the background and added a cardstock label (part of the die set). Then, I tied some May Arts string to the charm (My Mind’s Eye) and adhered it to the label with Craft Glue Dots.

Then, I added a few pages (again, part of the die set) where messages and photos can be added. They can be tucked into the folders.

Finally, I adhered a photo to the folder with Memory Glue Dots.

I love the way it turned out!

  1. This book is really adorable! I never would have imagined that Lifestyle Crafts folder die could be so cute. I love the fact that it was cut from the wood paper. Very nice!
