classics for dad

June is always a wonderful month. It brings summer, school holidays, trips to the beach and Father’s Day. Today I have a gift project for dear old dad.

Is it just me or does anyone else find dads hard to create or buy for? I always find it so tricky. The other day I was going through my stash looking for some inspiration and came across this metal cd tin. Sorry…I’ve had it a while and I can’t remember where it came from but I’m sure a Google search would help you come up with a source. My guy is a music lover so I thought it would be fun to put all his favorites on a CD or two or three. His own personal music mix. My daughter actually made me up a CD while she was away at school this past year and I loved the gift.

Because this tin will hold classics, I went with a classic vintage style to alter the tin. The edges are wrapped with Tissue Tape and give it a fun feel.

The embellishments are made up of papers from the Boarding Pass line by October Afternoon and some chipboard accent pieces that I’ve covered or stained. Adhering them is easy with Craft Glue Dots®. Glue Dots® work great even on tough surfaces like metal and wood.

Happy creating!
