Every man needs a wallet!




I have to say that my hubby is the absolute greatest dad I could ever ask for for my kids! He is patient and kind and loving and caring! He is truly a great dad and I sincerely hope that my kids appreciate how wonderful he is! : )

Thought I would share the crafty stuff we gave him this Father's Day! We usually get him a wallet for Christmas, but didn't buy one this past year! So I thought it would be cute to make him a paper wallet instead! I used Mel's Faux leather technique (linked below in the tool belt post!) to turn card stock into what feels like real leather ** Disclaimer!! No cows were harmed in making this wallet!** : ) . It was very simple and actually looks like a wallet when it is all closed up! Too cute! The pattern came from Jackie Topa. She has a great blog! I filled it with pictures of our kids and each kiddo wrote him a note to go with their photo!

Also pictured is a card my youngest son asked me to make for him to give to his dad! We kept it simple, but the sentiment on the inside was heart felt!
