This is a fish tackle box (somewhat funny story about it below).
What else could I possibly use but the fabulous Cosmo Cricket? The Boyfriend line was just perfect. All the papers are from Cosmo Cricket as well as the sentiment. The sentiment is on the Antique Label from CC&M. Terry at CC&M has a fun new die cut, the Scalloped Rectangle Frame that I had cut in velvet! I also had the Moose cut in velvet. If you need specific colors let me know...I can definitely track them down! The velvet was very fun to work with and added a little flair.
I plan on filling it with little candies, but thought I'd wait a little closer to Father's day so they would be fresh!
I hope you enjoyed my project today! This was very quick and easy to do! I think they make great gifts for any occasion or even just because! I saw one filled with paper clips, erasers and such for a teachers and thought that a great idea!
Now for the funny story, or at least I find it funny. A handful of years ago Chris let me know he got us tickets to the Ducks Unlimited fundraiser dinner. I wasn't sure what to expect, but ended up having a lot of fun. It was my lucky night, not only did a win a fishing tackle box (who would have thought you could win scrapbooking storage containers at a Ducks Unlimited benefit?), but I also won a G.L. Loomis fishing rod and a rifle! Yep...all those and all it cost me was $5 to play one game (which won me the rifle)! I was his lucky charm! I told him he needed to take me back every year so HE could win more toys! :)
If I don't post again before the weekend, I hope everyone has a fantastic and SAFE Memorial Day weekend!
