Father's Day Prep

Hello Everyone! Are you prepared for Father's Day?  Can you believe that it is only a few weeks away!  My flowers are blooming already and I only recently planted them. This is the time of year when Mother Earth comes to life and soon we will hear children playing and families find more time to spend together at games, picnics, and vacations.  Its a really fun time of the year.

To celebrate Father's Day I decided to give a gift that was both unique and practical.  I altered a box and created a matching mini album to put inside it.  I thought this would be a great gift especially if it is filled with personal photos and mementos.
All that would be left to do is to add a ticket for two to a Rangers Game (or some other sport). 

Knowing how most men don't seem to be very organized I figured that having a convenient place to store the album would be greatly appreciation as well as a nice conversation piece.

Well the only thing left to do is to share what I have created as a Father's Day Gift with you.



First up is a frontal side view of the box.  



Here is the inside view of the box.  As you can see the box holds a mini album designed to match the box.







Although there are only eight pages (4 front and back) in this album it can hold quite a bit of photos.  Each page has a pocket that will accommodate two 4x6 photos, a total of 16 photos.



Additionally each page has a booklet tucked away that can be used for journaling or more photos.  This gives you an opportunity to add an additional 16 photos (4 per booklet) if desired.

The front and back cover have pockets for storing mementos and other small tokens.  The album is 6.5 x 6.5 with a 2.5 spine so it can get quite chunky if needed.

Hope you enjoyed sharing this little gift set with me and I hope it has inspired or given you ideas for Fathers Day.  


Until next time
Be Blessed, Stay Safe and Seek Happiness wherever you go.
