Fathers Day gifts

Took the easy option for fathers day this year, and our 3 dads have gift vouchers! cheating maybe but I dont care lol but I did make an effort and made a little wallet or 3 to put the gift vouchers in!! 

I used my nesties for the shape, embossed them with a cuttlebug folder, added a pouch and then a little flap of carr using eyelets on the front and secured with a glue dot on the back! 






I love them all, and will definately make them again, however I did have a big disaster whilst embossing them .... 

I broke my Grand Calibur, it is less than 2 months old and one of the teeth on the cogs has snapped!!! and it wasn't through any fault of my own. Got to send this one back and get a replacement again!! Grrr 

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:

Meh it's not the easy option at all... men are notoriously difficult to buy for... and there are so many man with so many unwanted ties/socks/you name it that will never see the light of day- at least they can choose what they want :)

..those wallets are awesome... you're really clever
