Father's Day, Scrapbook Style!

Honestly, how do you craft for a guy? It's not easy and I pretty much think my husband placates me when he says "Oh that's very nice honey". But I tried out this experimental project and he was my "victim". I just had to try this when I saw it done in a scrapbooking magazine. It's really simple... just an old frame, some corkboard, fabric, ribbon, & embellishments. The fabric acts as a pocket while the corkboard can support thumbtacks so it's great for an off to college gift or just as a fancy way to hold your grocery list. I had a great time trying out something different. Fabric is definitely a medium I don't get to work with very often.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there... many of whom are loyal readers of the Jeune Girl Crafts blog because we all know that men secretly pine to be scrapbookers. (Little known fact: my own hubby thought up the name of my little craft business.) Here's a shot of him and the girls just before going to church.
