Today I am featuring the new Masculine Graphic Tee Die-namics and Stamp set. This is such an awesome set, perfect for all those men in your lives … Dads, Grandpas, Brothers, Sons etc.

I decided to do something a little different than a card using this set today, so I made a T Shirt Accordion Mini Book to give to either my husband or son in law for Father’s Day, which for those living in Australia isn’t until September.

I die cut the Die-namics Masculine Graphic Tee twice using designer paper and 2 using card stock. I sponged around the edges and stamped the image and wording I wanted and adhered the designer paper tee to the card tee.

I created the accordion part of the book by cutting a piece of card 4 inches x 10 1/2 inches. I scored across the whole 10 1/2 inches at 1 1/4 inches to create the fold up piece at the bottom to hold my tags. I then scored at 1 3/4 inch intervals to create the accordion part.

To create the tags I used one of the dies from the Die-namics Traditional Tag set which is also being released today. I stamped a word onto each tag ad slipped it into a pocket.

Here is another view of my Tee Book with the tags all out, so you can see which each one says.
