Fathers day tool box

I have been working on this project for about 2 weeks now off and on. I had started it before going to my work retreat and then I had to leave for a week and I wasn't able to actually finish it until today. I'm so excited to share it with everyone. So here goes

Well what do you think does it look like a tool box to you? I worked so hard to get it just right. For the actual box I used an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Ryan's play date. I altered the file a bit in Make the Cut so I could put drawers in the front.

Here is a top view of the box. The tag and the tool came from another SVG Cuts file called My Day with Dad.

Here it is once you open it. I tried making it look like the actual inside of a tool box. You know the part at the top that comes out. Yep you can lift this one up too

This is the first drawer. I used the curio shelf from Attic Treasures for this drawer and the tools are from Cliff's Clubhouse Cards

Here is a picture of the second shelf. Again I used the same curio shelf I just altered the file so that there were no compartments. The tools came from the same place also. I decided that this was a good spot to insert the gift card.
We are almost done just 3 more pictures I promise.

My husband actually gave me the idea for this. I thought that it looked a bit plan on the outside so I decided to jazz it up a bit. He said well why don't you get some stickers like the ones that people put on there actual toolboxes. So I went with his idea. I think it turned out cute and gave it that little extra thing it needed. What do you think?


Well that's it for me today. I hope that you all enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed making it. Please leave comments and questions I always love hearing from everyone.
