H2H Challenge: Scrappy Father's Day

Next Sunday is the day we all celebrate our #1 guy...DAD!
Smiley from

And in honor of that great and glorious day, when dads get breakfast lovingly prepared by eager little handsSmiley from and another round of beautiful tiesSmiley from to unwrap, those of us at Heart 2 Heart bring you this week's challenge:

Using your scraps and/or recycled items, create a card or project for Dad.

The hardest part of creating anything for Engineer is coming up with something he would truely love from the boys. All of his hobbies seem to center around electronicSmiley from millan.netthingamajigs. I wouldn't have a clue what to surprise him with...except an outrageous bill from some gadget store.

So this year we went the homemade gift route and made him a tin of Daddy Coupons.

Stamps: CTMH Headline Alpabet Large
Inks: CTMH Desert Sand
Papers: CTMH It's A Guy Thing Reflections Kit

I had several of these hinged tins left over from past workshops that were perfect for this project. I stamped the DADDY with the Headline alphabet stamps onto some scrap chipboard sheets then cut them out. I covered them with paper from the It's A Guy Thing pack. I also made my own coordinating buttons by gluing Clear Craft Buttons to some more scraps from the paper pack and finishing them off with some Natural Hemp.

I cut a couple of quotes from a sheet in the paper pack to decorate the inside lid...

then we printed off some coupons using the Hippo font from the Expressives Vol. II.

The boys each filled out two coupons for their dad and signed them. I think we'll finish off the tin with a bag of Engineers favorite candy.

Stop by the other DT members blogs to see all the wonderful projects they've created for their special guys!
