It's the Friday before Father's Day and I am still working on a gift for Hubby. He loved the grill box that I made the other day and has been helping himself to the Hershey Almond/Caramel chocolates even though Father's Day isn't here yet. Thanks to LD's latest release, I now have another brand new box for him that I can give him on Sunday.
The first file in the Just Toolin Around Boxes is a little toolbox gift box. Just like the grill box, I decided to make it with foil paper except that this time I used a sheet that is red in color.
Initially I wanted to use brads to attach the smaller layers to the box but I didn't like that the prongs show up everywhere inside and so I decided to use snaps instead. I had bought some from a local store eons ago and had almost forgotten that I had them. They look just like rivets once they are attached to the toolbox. Love it!
This toolbox is easy to make and I would say that the hardest part for me was attaching the snaps. Brads will be a lot easier to use if you don't mind that their prongs show up inside the box. I had to use my Crop-o-Dile to affix my snaps, and in those places where the Crop-o-Dile cannot reach, I used my manual eyelet setter/hammer. Still, I thought it was worth the trouble as I really like the look of them.
The finished toolbox is a little smaller than the grill gift box. When closed, it measures only 3.75" wide x 2.75" tall x 1.75" deep but it can hold plenty of chocolates, or in this case, plenty of .....
.....Kisses for Daddy! :)
