For our second feature today, Erin is sharing a Father’s Day Card & Gift Set:

Father's Day Card & Gift Set

Erin here, summer season is coming and it’s time to think about giving those special Fathers in our lives a gift to say thanks.  My project today take a set of bbq tools, gifted to me by my insurance agent, and gives them the ribbon treatment to create a unique Father’s Day present.

Father's Day Card & Gift Set

To start with get some basic bbq tools, May Arts burlap ribbon and burlap string, scor-tape and some scissors.  Start by adhering a layer of scor-tape to the base of the tool and then wrap the burlap around it twice, adding an additional layer of tape to each layer.  Next lay down a smaller section of tape (the burlap is 4 inches wide, so I’d recommend somewhere between 2 ½ inches to 3 inches of tape.  Start the burlap string on one end and wrap around the tool until you cover the section of tape.  If you didn’t want to use as much string, I’d recommend a smaller section of tape.  Finally tie the string in a knot and hide under one of the many strands, tucking in the loose end.

Father's Day Card & Gift Set

No gift is complete without a card!  For this card I took pieces from the Authentique Strong set, May Arts woven burlap ribbon, burlap string, distress stain and some stamps.  Start by cutting your patterned paper into pieces and finding the right accessories from the paper set.   Add some white stain to the kraft piece of paper and stamp the postmark details before adhering the ribbon pieces to the card stock.  Assemble the pieces together, using a few foam dots to gibe a bit more dimension to the card.

To complete the project create a coordinating tag and wrap the bbq tools together with tie it all together with the woven burlap ribbon in a square knot.

    These were both super projects!!  I always wonder about coloring those ribbon roses and this shows me how great they can look.  I am also getting ready to make a "pocket" album for a Father's Day gift and love the idea of wrapping jute around a piece of burlap on the front instead of a piece of ribbon.  Well done, ladies!

    The card is very masculine.  I'm sure dad will appreciate the BBQ tools and the card – they were made by his daughter for him.    That always makes things more special.    Love the flower at the top of the post.    I've got that on my "to do" list.

    I'm over from PCL and enjoyed your projects over there. I love the technique for dying the ribbon to match the project.  I adore your card.  The accompanying tag you showed on the PCL post was lovely, too.  What a great way to "man-up" this bbq set.  Gotta love burlap!!!  Gotta get me some.  Nicely done!
