Something for Dad...

This is the only thing I have made for Father's Day, time has really not been on my side these last few weeks so Father's Day has been almost 100% bought - including all cards - shame on me hey...? We are off to see the new Superman film tomorrow as part of my OH's Father's Day pressie. He's also got a photo mug, a coaster, a t-shirt (Superman), chocs and a keyring. Ohhhh and the new Dan Brown book :-) We are meeting up with my brother and his family and my mum and dad for lunch on Sunday, will be a lovely catch up with all of us together.

I've bought my dad something a little different this year. I usually go for a shirt or something for the garden but I've bought a voucher for afternoon tea for two at a manor house near where he and my mum live. The voucher arrived and it is slightly smaller than A5 and on paper. It looked rather boring so I decided to jazz it up a bit and made a folder envelopey type thing to put it in. I then made a band to slot over the folder to keep it flat, I think these are called belly bands but I could be mistaken. What do you think...?

 Here's a pic of the inside...
