Father's Day Gratitude Faux Wallet with SVG Download

Hi all you Dandi Crafters! I am excited about this project because it is the first project that I completed as a Design Team Member for Sugar Sweet Paper Treats. The theme of this challenge was Stitches. So be sure to pop over there and visit and comment (it will make me look good!. LOL) Come'n at you today is this cute little Father's Day Gratitude Faux Wallet. The wallet is faux not the gratitude...LOL The wallet has little pockets. Each of my 4 kiddos took an index card and wrote something that they were grateful for about their Dad and a nice little extra chore that they will perform to make Dad's life easier. Then I took a snap shot of the kids and placed in the picture pocket area. The picture and filled in gratitude index cards are not shown because the kids felt those should be for Dad's eyes only. But I am sure you get the idea.

I also entered this project in My Sheri Crafts Challenge #9 which is a Father's Day theme challenge. I think it has bit of a Father's Day theme...LOL Pop over there and see the many great projects

I also entered this project in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog where you had to "create a masculine project for dear dad"
]

This is what the wallet looks like before it is assembled. Of course you will have to add the faux stitching yourself. The wallet itself is made up of 4 pieces. The wallet is made to cut out using only 2 pieces of 8.5 x 11 paper. You can cut the index cards out on what ever paper you have laying around handy. I also used cuttlebug's embossing folder, classeur de gaufrage, Spots and Dots, Pois and Point, to give it a bit of texture to add some interest.
I also used some vinyl I had around to add a super dad logo to the front. The Super Dad I made up and cut out in SCAL but the lightening bolt emblem is from Cricut Cartridge/Cartouche Paper Dolls Dress Up, page 56 Accessories 2, no shift key, in the hand book.

Add a bit of velcro to the tab area and the wallet will stay shut.

You can find everything to make the wallet in the zip folder. The exact measurements can be found in the text file along with the copyright and terms of use and some tips on assembly. Both svg and SCAL, scut files are included in the folder. The scut file was created in SCAL so it should work in SCAL 2 or SCAL 1.

The zip file also includes:
• The main Wallet
• 2 pockets a small and large. (Put the smaller on top of the larger)
• 1 Picture pocket
• 3 index cards. (The tabs are in different positions)

Loved this wallet for a Father's Day card. I made it for my Father-in-law last year. I put my daughter's soccer picture in it, and we each wrote a greeting to him on each of one of the tabs. I included a gift card to his favorite spot. He loved it and was very impressed that I made it! Thank you so much for sharing your file.

DtsArt said...

Thanks so much for sharing. I made this with brown Bazzill paper and then sanded it to make it look worn. It made a great gift for my kid's grandpa. I added a picture of them and grandpa coupons. He loved it.
