Something For Dad

It’s Handmade Monday so of course I’m running very late. I actually had the project mostly done yesterday but I wanted it to dry completely before I put it together which means I couldn’t get my final photos done yesterday, which means I didn’t do my write up –etc etc etc (please read that with Yul Brynner’s voice from The King and I, it’s far more effective…).

Anyway. It’s Father’s Day next Sunday, and I have to get this done and in the mail. My Dad makes the most wonderful cards for people for their birthdays. He’s also difficult to get presents for, so I thought maybe he would like something to help him organize his cards. I’ve been working on it for weeks, and kept running into snags. Finally, it’s done!

I think it turned out well. I’m not going to say this was simple or easy. It combined some things I enjoy with some things I really don’t like to do at all, but I think a lot of projects are like that (sewing –cough cough).

It also gave me an idea for something else I’m going to make, which I’ll share later this summer.

So, let’s head on over and look at how I made my Daddy a Card Keeper. 🙂
