Father's Day Gift Box by Jamie G.

Files Used: Vintage Framette II by Karen Taglia 0372
Materials: Cardstock, silver brads, 1/8" thick 3-D dots

My dearest husband is always so hard to buy for!! I always look for that special something for him that I know he will truly cherish and appreciate. Since he has always been VERY supportive of my crafting and gets to see firsthand the time and love I put into each item, I decided it was time to make something special for him.
I started with a basic origami style box that I created a cut file in Funtime. Then decorated the box with matching cardstock that I cut to size based on my dimensions of the box. Using the Vintage Framette II by Karen Taglia 0372, I framed the sentiment "Happy Father's Day." I also attached 4 silver brads to the corners of the vintage framette.

Using the option to use ANY pen of my choice, in the Funtime font, Architec, I "cut" out the sentiment "Happy Father's Day." Then I removed my pen and quickly put the blade holder back in to cut the rectangle out around the sentiment. So EASY and I LOVE it!! :o)  I attached the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment to the box using 1/8" thick 3-D dots for some added dimensions.

With the box finished, my daughter, son, and I will fill it with "treasures" for Daddy!! Of course, with my babies being 3 years-old and 22 months I'm sure that Dad will get rocks, weeds "acting" as flowers, and whatever other goodies we can find! :o) I know that he's going to LOVE it!!
