Instructions:

I made the toolbox a little by accident. I started making a 6″ wide box with a rounded top and after a few modifications I ended up with a box that looked like a toolbox. To make this box, start by taking a piece of cardstock 6″ x 10 1/2″ and scor on the long side at the 1″, 2″, 3″, 4″, 5″, 6 1/2″ and 9″ marks. This will form the body of the box. You will need to make 2 pieces 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ to close in the bottoms of the box and 2 more pieces 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ that you will use to close in the top of the box. I did not want a smooth, rounded top so I folded the large piece of cardstock to the desired shape and traced the shape onto a piece of cardstock to use as a template. If you are unsure of which end is for the top of the box it is the end with the scor marks at the 1″, 2″, 3″ and 4″ marks. Finally, close up the ends on your box and decorate as desired. After the basic box was made, I covered the box in paper from the Everyday Heroes Paper Collection, added a handle and a few small pieces to make the front look like it latches. Finish decorating with a few fussy cut images from the Everyday Heroes Paper Collection and flowers from the All Geared Up Die set. They go perfectly with this collection! Finally make a quick and simple gift card holder for that little extra gift. There are a ton of different tutorials out there if you would like instructions on how to make one. Mine was a simple gift card holder with a pocket to hold the gift card. Once everything is complete, fill your toolbox with some sweet treats and present this to the lucky recipient or everyday hero in your life!

Have I mentioned lately how thankful I am to all of my lovely followers who support me each and every week?  I truly appreciate your kindness and blog friendship.

Have a wonderful day!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
