Father's Day Tool Box

This cute little tool box was created using the Cricut Cartridge Sweet Treats.
Perfect for a gift card for Dad for Father's Day!

Start with 2 Tag cuts of Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip from Sweet Treats button #8 at 4 ". Run them through your Big Shot using the woodgrain folder.
Cut 2 pieces of Chocolate Chip card stock to 4 1/2 x 2  1/2. Score at 1/2 each end end and then along the bottom. Do this on each one.

Cut out small squares at the corners, now fold along the score line and apply a bead of a strong adhesive OR Sticky Strip to the 3 flaps.

Now score and fold the bottom of the tags at 1" and attach each tag to the panels again with either Sticky Strip or strong adhesive such as Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. To this to both panels.
I also cut a piece of 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 to close up the bottom-NO need to emboss this one. Than attach the bottom.

Finally add a greeting, such as this one for Father's Day with a piece of cordinating paper using a Stampin' Up! Modern Label punch. I than attached silver brads and adhered to the 'Tool Box'
Don't you just love it?! And so will that handy man in your life!
