simple fathers day gift

I used to love making fathers day gifts as a child for my Dad  so I thoroughly enjoyed making this quick sinple fathers day gift that the kids/grandchildren could do ...its a choc bar wrapper .I used the new papers from Docrafts Heritage press range and I love how it turned out ...The buttons are from my huge button stash I have had for a very long time .
