Morning Peeps!!
It's Lou here with a little bit of inspiration for you this morning!!

I have been thinking of Fathers day cards for my Dad's! and this one is my fav so far. I wanted something a bit different so went for this folded tag album card.

They are so much fun to make. 

All you need to do is print out your fav paper on some thin cardstock.If you want the inside to have a pattern on too, pop it back through the printer and print on the other side too.

How you do the pocket inside is up to you, I had fun making different pockets for this one! I love the shirt and tie one!! 

I added a bit of string and saw charm to the second pocket, rolled the edge of the next over and added an eyelet and some punched Alpha's from the Steam Funk download. For the last pocket I punched a little out of the top of it and then printed out the tools image from the Colour me Happy workspace.

Then it was time to do the tags. I cut my tags from kraft paper and I was really careful with the little scalloped circles. I looked all over my texted paper and picked out some cool Dad describing words from it and then punched them so they would be clearly seen on the bottom of the folded over circle. I chose Smart, Slick, Knowing and Skill!! how fun is that?!!

Thank you for popping in on us
