Happy Father’s Day Paper Wallet

odd-bird-fathers-day-sale_handmade-paper-wallet_2

Don’t these odd birds remind you of your husband?  Look, it’s taking three odd male birds to fix one leaky pipe.  Admit it, our husbands pretend that they can fix something around the house, but we all know who tells them how to do it!  Us. Yes, us odd bird ladies certainly know how to keep things under control in the household.   Sheesh, and our husbands think we are only rubberstampers!  Ugh!  I have a great story to tell you, but I’ll save that for another day as I have lots to share.  But, I might add, I would love to hear your funny story about your Mr. Fix-it.  You will find the tutorial at the end of my post.

The tutorial for the paper wallet comes from the very talented Jerry Kay, of A Touch of Grace.  I sew on all my cards, which made this card so much fun to create.  If you don’t sew, don’t worry, you can piece your wallet together with double sided tape.   My photos don’t do justice for how awesome it looks in real life.

For Jerry Kay’s tutorial click here.

Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did putting it together.  Have a great weekend everyone!
