Easy Father's Day Gift

It's raining in this neck of the woods today so no garage sales for moi.  =(  I'm actually kind of relieved as I have visions/plans for a number of projects that I wouldn't mind tackling this weekend.  First up is this quick Father's Day pocketwatch:
I picked up the watch piece from Michaels.  It opens in the back so you can add photos, little tidbits, etc.  This one is for my Dad a.ka. Pop Pop for Father's Day.  The boys helped me pick out their photo to use.  Then I added some black tea-stained seam binding for the "chain" and hand-stamped Happy Father's Day!!! to a small coffee tag. 

I think my Dad will love it!

So is your weekend a total rainout too?

I saw those last time I was there and thought they would make a great project. Never even thought of a Father's Day gift. Dad will love it.
