Helmar Father's Day Blog Hop (with a little Ruby Rock-it, too)

Welcome to the Helmar Happy Fathers Day Hop. Today we are so excited to share with you a variety of fantastic masculine projects. We've put our Helmar arsenal to good use and want to share with you some inspiration for those last minute Fathers Day gifts.

If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from Lisa Wilkinson's blog . If not, hop on back to the Helmar Blog and enjoy. Make sure to leave comments along the way, because we will have prizes up for grabs. And if the Man in your life is super lucky, We may even send him a Helmar prize pack too.

My project is a Father's Day card for my hubby, and features papers from the Ruby Rock-it "Keepsake" line.  All the papers were put together with Helmar Acid Free Glue.

These fun chipboard ties and chocolate brown tag are from the Fundamentals line.  I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry on the chipboard and ribbon.
