Dear Old Dad: Father’s Day Gift Wallet with “Dapper” Collection Kit

Hello, Friends!  It's always hard to know what to get Dad for Father's Day...or birthday...or Christmas for that matter!  But today I have a project that I think every dad will absolutely love. I've created this Dear Old Dad Father's Day Gift Wallet using Authentique's Dapper Collection. The images, patterns and colors are perfectly retro, wonderfully whimsical and fabulously fun.

See what I mean about these papers?  They just capture that retro vibe so well!  If your Dad loves puzzles, then he'll love the design of this album.  Although it only measures 4" x 4" x 1/2", it opens up to 12" wide x 15" long.  Filled with interactive elements like pockets, tags, fold outs and flip pages, the design meshes perfectly with the playful feel of these fun papers. I created a belly band with ribbon and a large vintage button from my stash to decorate the top of the album.  The button echoes the design of the LP album in the focal image, which makes me very happy indeed.

 I used a Velcro closure instead of magnets as the paper is thick and I was afraid a magnet would not close.

And it just keeps on opening!  I added pockets to the center panel so that gift cards, photos, tickets, chocolates or other small gifts can be inserted. Dear Old Dad Father's Day Gift Wallet with Authentique Dapper Collection by Kathy Clement Photo 8 
These tiny tags fill the pockets, and I just loved how easy it was to pull them together using the stickers from the Dapper Collection.

This is what the gift wallet looks like when it's fully opened.  To help you get a real feel for the flow of this project, I created a very short YouTube video tour.
