Tool Box

As you may know we are an active duty Air Force family currently stationed in Germany, which can make shopping hard.  We do a lot of our shopping online, but the wait for it to get here is killer.  For Christmas I ordered my husband some things that he wanted from Harbor Freight's website, but was pretty sure that there wasn't enough time for them to get here by Christmas.  So I decided to make a craft project to tell him what he was getting!!!  I had SOOOO much fun making this project!!!!!

My husband is a Vehicle Mechanic in the Air Force and out of the Air Force.  He is one of the very lucky people who has a job that he absolutely LOVES.  I envy him for that, not too many people are that lucky!!  When he's not at work he loves to be in the garage working on his car, a friend's car or whatever he can find.  So I saw it fit to make his project be a tool box.

The lid is held down using a hair tie and an album binding post.

I used my Storybook cricut cartridge to cut the letters out of black Bazzill cardstock.

My husband has many things that he would like to have, his "I want.." list.  So I used some black alphabet stickers that I had to write "I Want..." on the inside of the lid and then I printed out pictures of different things that I knew he wanted, including the items I got him.

Inside the toolbox I made several little mini albums and added pictures to them of our family.  (Each mini album will have it's own separate post.)

In the very bottom I used my black alphabet stickers again and wrote "I am Getting..." and then I put pictures of the two big items that he was getting that weren't going to be here in time for Christmas.

Bazzill cardstock - Red and Black

Like I said I had soooo much fun making this project, and my husband absolutely loved it too!!!!  Please come back and view my posts for the mini albums once I get them posted!!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!
