A Father's Day Gift

This is the top of a box I've made to give as a Father's Day gift.

It will be filled with handmade cards.

Most men don't do like the task of getting cards for special occasions, (at least in my experience), so that was the premise behind this gift.

They get the gift of not having to go purchase cards for a while!

Here are some other angles of the box, then I'll post some of the cards and how I created them.

This is the inside of the box that will hold the cards.

I used Sahara Sand CS and some of the Nautical Expedition DSP.

These are pix of the side and front of the box. I braided some of the Cherry Cobbler/white Baker's Twine, and used it as the tie closure for the box. I had a little piece left over, so adhered it to the box's side. I also adhered some linen thread tied in various knots.

And here are the pieces I prepared before going on a card making spree!

I stamped the images from The Open Sea in Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Early Espresso on Confetti Vanilla CS and then proceeded to cut a good many of them out, or use them with punches. I liberally added brads and Baker's Twine and Linen thread, and any other thing I could think of! LOL

And here are some of the cards I created!

I love working with this stamp set and DSP. They just so EASILY create a lot of card ideas!

I hope you enjoyed the photos of this project. If you have any questions about dimensions, leave me a comment!

Thanks for stopping by - come back soon!
