Let’s face it, guys are hard to craft for. I asked my husband what kinds of crafty things guys would like for Father’s Day, and he said something for electronic gadgets, and anything made with duct tape. So I dug around a little bit and found this awesome faux wood contact paper that I purchased at the dollar store a while ago. It’s not as sturdy as duct tape, but it looks a million times more cool. Hence, an iPad sleeve made from faux wood contact paper.
DIY Faux Wood iPad Sleeve Tutorial
1) Supplies needed: Heavy cardstock (2), felt (2), contact paper, spray adhesive, needle, embroidery floss, cutting tool (not shown). 2) Cut the contact paper to the size of your device, adding a 1-inch margin on all sides. Remove the contact paper backing and adhere it to the cardstock. 3) Cut notches on each corner of the contact paper. 4) Fold over the access. 5) Spray your felt with the spray adhesive. 6) Attach the pieces. 7) Using a cutting tool or scissors, trim the access felt. Repeat this process to make another identical panel. 8) Use the needle and embroidery floss to attach three sides of the panels together.
Happy Father’s Day crafting, DIY’ers!
