Today is my "little" brother's birthday and I am sending his gift home with my mother... (hopefully he won't see this post before he sees his gift). I had a chance to play with the clock mechanisms and the metal panels and came up with this for Joseph:
I used alcohol inks and photos of his wife, Gina, and son, Brandon, and hope it will look nice on a wall at work or something. It's tough to create masculine gifts, but with these metal panels, I have found it much easier. Scroll down the blog to see the metal-cover notepad I made, as well. Add that to Jenn's magnetic gameboard (scroll down for that one, too!) and there are a number of ideas to make it easy to check off the boys and and men on your holiday shopping list by using your papercrafting stash. Have fun!
