Quilled Father's Day Ideas

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
Recently I showed a cool cat card idea for Dad, and today I have another couple of manly projects up my sleeve. Yes, shirt sleeve literally, har... well, maybe not, considering this one is apparently sleeveless.

Just the tiniest amount of quilling is involved - initials on the pocket. The collar and pocket edging are mulberry paper and the inside message simply reads, "Thanks, Dad!"

And then there's a personalized photo frame... if you happen to know a father who rustles cattle for a living. Hmm, I realize that's quite a stretch. Maybe for the dad who loves to watch old westerns on tv?
The lasso is coiled mizuhiki, which is very neat stuff, often seen beautifully knotted. It's used as a decoration on wrapped packages in Japan, and is made from washi paper that's twisted, coated with starch, and polished. Zakka Life, a favorite blog of mine, shows a lovely gift wrapping example.
The boot was inspired by a clip-art image, and I used silver-edged quilling paper to add shine to the star and spur.
