Father's Day ~ FCCB Challenge Me Monday

Good Morning Everyone! It's Monday! I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.

Mondays mean it's time for another Challenge Me Monday challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is all about Dad. Our sponsor this week is Whimsie Doodles. The winner of the challenge will get a gift certificate to their online store.

Some of the designers are using images from Whimsie Doodles. I decided to use the Happy Father's Day sentiment for my simple project. I don't know about you but making something for a guy is much harder than making something for a gal. For my project I decided to make a gift box for the special dad.

For this box I used an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Tied Surprise Gift Boxes. You can find the SVG HERE.

Here is a side view of the box.

And one more picture in the bright sunlight.

I used kraft cardstock for the base of my box. As you can see I kept it very simple. I selected what I thought was a masculine print from DCWV's Rustic Stack for the flap.

My sentiment, as I mentioned easlier, is from Whimsie Doodles. You are getting a special preview!

I cut the tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More.

I used Crinkle Ribbon in Golden Harvest. I purchased this from My Craft Spot. I love Kimberly's Crinkle Ribbon!

Everything was inked with Ranger's Distress ink in Tea Dye.

I hope you'll stop by Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful inspiration my fellow design team members have put together for you. I know you will be inspired to create something and join us this week. Can't wait to see what you create.

I'm adding this to the Linking Party with Alex!

Happy Crafting!

Wow, what a great way to package your gift! I love the use of kraft paper and your patterned paper is just perfect for a guy. The inking and crinkle ribbon are both great it!

Such a great project! I'm right with you...I'm terrible at making masculine projects. Yours is AWESOME, though.

Hi Saundra!

This is one of my favorite boxes from that set! I love how you made the base with kraft and I need to get some of Kimberly's crinkle ribbon. I never can decide which colors to get.
