Father's Day Fun

Here’s a project that I planned on demonstrating at the Puerto Rico regional (I mentioned it in the blog), but I didn’t have one of the supplies I needed, so I wasn’t able to show it. I promised the demonstrators who attended that I’d post it on the blog, so here it is—along with more than enough step-by-step photos to show you how to make it!

Spoiler alert—Stop reading here if you’re a Gardner male: I’m going to make these for Sterling, all the dads in my life, and all my sons-in-law. By switching out the Designer Series paper, I can change the look and feel of each piece. I’m excited!

The outside front cover of the On Board briefcase.

Add Designer Series paper; trim and sand edges.

Punch out holes.

Set eyelets.

Back side of front cover; two strips of card stock cover the holes.

Assemble book; spine is made from Designer Series paper; cover both sides of briefcase with DSP.

Fold envelope flap backwards.

Adhere flaps together to make an accordion. You can use as many envelopes as you like, depending on what you’re going to give the man/men in your life. You just need one if you’re giving a gift card. I’m giving photos, so I’m going to use several.

Adhere envelopes to inside of briefcase.

Create the tag.

Finish the bottom edge of the briefcase with a strip of Designer Series paper.

Finished project!
