Mr. Fix It!

Hi guys! I hope you all are enjoying the male/boy ideas on the Ideas to Inspire Blog with LOTV.  Today is my turn to show you a little something!  I made something with my Dad in mind!  He is an awesome woodworker so this little "Mr. Fix It" was perfect for my project!


 I made a tool box gift bag to go with my card.  I started with a square box base.

The sides were made with tags cut out with my Cricut.  I cut out some extra tags out of thin cardboard to make the sides more sturdy.

I added a handle with a small strip of paper along the top.


My images were colored with distress inks and I used a worn paint paper from Hobby Lobby and MME.


Be sure to keep checking on the Ideas To Inspire blog for more male/boy ideas from the design team!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Dena

Hi Dena
How are you doing, hope all is well in your world?
I adore this, such a clever idea and very attractive. I thought at first you had done the chipped paint technique with glue and acrylic paint. That is a very convincing paper I must say.
Thank you for your support on my blog, its lovely to see your picture pop up every so often.
Hugs Linda x
