Quick and Easy Father's Day Project

I saw this in Family Fun magazine and thought I can do that. This is a very fast, very easy and kid friendly too. Casey and I made this in about thirty minutes. I followed the directions given but after doing the project, I got to thinking that this would be so cute for any occasion really. Instead of covering the box, you could make your own in any size. Change the paper and tag and you could make it for anything.

Imagine a birthday celebration with this. You could fold and tape (non-permanent) money together. What a surprise that would be to the child as they pull more and more money out of the box. If you did this you probably would not tape it down on the inside of the box.

What about an “over the hill” card. For instance Steve will be 40 this year; I know that’s not THAT old but it is an example. I would cut the number 40 out several times using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine #113439 and the exclusive Stampin’ Up medium sizzlit die Timeless Type Junior Alphabet #115951. I would stick them to a piece of cardstock, with the message, and roll it into the box.

There really are a lot of possibilities with this box, more than I thought when I first saw it.

Basic Black Cardstock #106532
Brushed Silver Cardstock #100712
Summer Sun Cardstock #107097 (while supplies last)
Sticky Strip #104294
