Here’s wishing you a Happy Father’s Day weekend!
Father’s Day Card & Tie Clip DIY
Here’s one of my newest holiday cards for anyone with tons of craft supplies still needing project ideas for a last minute Father’s Day gift. I got this idea from Crafting a Green World’s blog post and have tweaked it to incorporate sparkle and embossed cards! Yes, even dad’s can enjoy a little bit of glitter!! So, let’s get busy watching my Father’s Day Card & Tie Clip DIY video tutorial.
This video tutorial shows you 2 versions of an embossed neck tie and bow tie card design embellished with baker’s twine and a stamped sentiment. Inside is a handmade neck tie clip and/ or tie tack. Such a beautiful and functional gift for dad. Here is one tie template and here is the larger alien spaceship tie template.
