Just for Dad!

Monday, June 14, 2010

Please head over to Fantabulous Cricut for Challenge #14 - 
"Celebrate Dear Dad"
You are to create a masculine project for Dad using your Cricut.

I always make sports related gifts, but this year decided to make a Military Keepsake Box using an ordinary paint can. I made the tag with the Bags, Tags, Boxes, and More Cricut cartridge.

K & Company makes great military scrapbook paper. The ribbon was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I also lined the inside with tissue paper. This is a great keepsake tin to hold dog tags, military insignia, and other mementos.

 I also cut the circle for the lid using my Cricut.

I received one of these during Veterans day from teachers at my school and thought it would be fun to make one of my own to give to my Dad and several of my Uncles for Father's Day. 

Can't start my summer crafting fun yet....I'm off to a teacher training for the next 3 days that will last from morning till late in the evening!
Stay tuned later in the week to see my NEW projects!

Entered in the following challenges:
PK Glitz - "Can" challenge
Paper Cutz - #45 Father's Day
ScrapFIT -   Mini Workout #2 (tags) and Workout #21 (machines)

Have a Fantabulous Week!
