I thought about making a masculine version for Father's Day. Instead of using the scallop circle for the cover, I used another Top Note Die. I also used a shorter piece of cardstock for the handle.
For the enclosure, I poked a couple of holes and inserted a piece of elastic cord which I tied on the back to secure it. To hide the holes, I used one of the labels from the Matchbox Die and placed a sentiment on it. The cord goes around the large brad and keeps the case closed. You could also use a large button, but this was all I had.
Here's a picture of the back and top. Everything I used for both projects are from Stampin' Up except the large brad on the briefcase.
