Definitely for Dudes: Father's Day Toolbox

Today I have a 3-D Toolbox for you, in my Definitely for Dudes series. It opens like the picture below for display, and it will close up with all the tools inside. Again, some of the supplies are sold out now, and others are on the Retiring List, and they will be sold ONLY thru May 31st (while supplies last)!!! Head over to my Online Store and grab what you can!


This project is based on a template I created a LONG time ago. It just happened to fit everything perfectly...it was meant to be! This project probably deserves a video, but I know I won't be able to get to it for a few days, at least, so I'm going to put the link to the old post with the template, and give you several pictures from different angles, in case you want to give it a go before then. My template for the mailbox/chest can be found HERE.



The view above shows the handle, which is made with the Classic Label Punch, which was scored in a few places, stamped with the little screw top image on each end, and adhered.


The view above shows the tools lying in the toolbox as you open up the top.


The view above shows the strip of Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive used to keep the box closed, or to keep it open in display position. You simply lay down a line and let it dry, and it is sticky enough to hold the lid closed, but not sticky enough to leave residue or tear the card stock.


The view above shows the back of the hexagon. You can see there is kind of a loop of card stock, inside which the tools are tucked. The tools are just in there by gravity and tension, they float freely so you can arrange them in line to close the box, or pull them out and separate them out for display. The lid, when the box is open for display, sticks to that tab you see above the hexagon--that's what holds the lid in place for display.


This card features the Nailed It stamp set, which is available in wood-mount and clear-mount. The Build It Framelits Dies I used to cut some of the pieces are sold out. But, they aren't that difficult to just trim around, and you can still grab the clear-mount version of the stamp set ON SALE...but it is LOW INVENTORY, so you'll want to get it before it's too late. Unfortunately, the little silver screw heads I used from the Urban District Embellishments on the project are already sold out.

The supplies for this project that will be carrying over to the new catalog are: Real Red card stock, Basic Gray card stock, Crumb Cake card stock, Silver Foil Sheets, Basic Black Archival ink pad, Classic Label Punch (handle on top), Watercolor Pencils (used with Blender Pens).

What Father's Day gifts do you have in your toolbox??
