Themed Thursday - gift for Dad!

Hi everyone! Tara C. here to share a Themed Thursday with you. As you know, Father's Day is coming up this Sunday. Hopefully you all have your gifts ready to go but I have a post for you in case you need a bit of last minute inspiration.

Gift cards are always a perfect fit, especially for those men in your life that are hard to buy for or already have everything. And what man doesn't appreciate some fancy packaging!

This cute little gift card holder was, in it's former life, a spice tin from World Market but I knew it had a lot more life in it! I used my most manly Paper Wings Productions stamp set, the ever adorable and dapper Marcel, to create a Happy Father's Day cover. All of the paper is from Stampin' Up! as well as the metal accents. The bingo card is from Theresa Collins and is normally larger that this one but I resized it on my printer to make it small enough to fit the top of the tin. I stamped and then cut Marcel out and popped him off a background of his cane and bow tie and gave him a fancy little hat to wear. The banner is my favorite part and the sentiments in the set are perfectly fitting.

The card is a mini designed to fit inside along with the gift card. I used the same papers and added some die cut letters along with another banner and sweet sentiment to celebrate all the good things our dads do for us!
That's it for today! Thanks for visiting and be sure and come back next week for more exciting creations from the Paper Wings Productions Flight Attendants!
