ScrapMart: Father's Day Box

Tomorrow is Father's Day...for me and others who have lost their fathers, it's a day of mixed emotions. So tomorrow, I will think HAPPY thoughts of mine and celebrate the day :) For starters, I created this cute box out of 7 1/2 x 10" patterned paper...I'll give you the link at the end of the post :)

Father's Day Box by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers: Tim Holtz (Crowded Attic Collection); Ink: Ranger (Distress Ink/Tim Holtz); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-048 Sprightly Sprockets; S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three and Jewel Tones & Precious Metals Premium Craft Foils Assortment); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever); Other: Brad, Sand Paper

I enjoyed this project as it uses only one 12 x 12" paper...even the band can come from the same piece of paper (this one I used from another box I made...I did alot of them! LOL!). These step outs give you an idea of how easy it was! I even managed to sneak a flower in the project ;0P




The instruction details and video came from Dawn's Stamping Studio Surprise Box Video so visit her blog! Looks like she has a lot of fun creations :)

Yes, definitely a bittersweet day for both of us, Margie. Sending you a big hug! Maybe we should each do a layout about the happy thoughts we come up with to celebrate our dads tomorrow. :) So, really only one 12x12 for this gorgeous box? Wow! It's such a cool idea and I love that you can use any paper and make it for any occasion.
