Father's Day Projects ~ No. 1

So Father's Day is just a few weeks away so I thought I would do a few projects that would be suitable for Father's Day but they would easily be suitable for any male in your life and for any occasion.

Today's is a faux coffee cup gift card holder.

It's made from a piece of cardstock that is cut in half length-wise and folded in half.  Then I just cut a section from about 1.5cm on the bottom edge to the top corner on both sides.  I used the "Mocha Morning" Speciality DSP, which, as the name may suggest, is perfect for a faux coffee, (or tea!), holder.

It was only after I had finished the card that I decided to make it into a gift card holder, perfect for a card for your coffee house of choice.

Enjoy the rest of your day..... xx
