Hey guys! Today, I'm sharing an awesome Father's Day project that I made for Lori Whitlock's blog. I used her brand new cutting file called 4 Candy Drawer #1 Dad Sports (link below) and made a gift box for my #1 Dad!
It's perfect for small gift ideas like his favorite candy, collectible coins, fishing lures, a key chain, golf ball markers, golf tees, a swanky new pen, cuff links, or a tie pin. You could even enlarge the size & add golf balls!
This simple design includes a rectangular box (or drawer) and four small square boxes that fit inside. The #1 Dad sleeve slides over it and keeps everything contained. I love the cut-outs on top. Such a fun and clever way to present a gift.
Here are a few tips for assembling this project. First, use a medium weight card stock for the boxes and the "drawer"... probably less than 100#. If the card stock is too thick, it might make the drawer a little tight. I used Bazzill 80# (Jade) and it worked perfectly.
Tip #2: If you fold all of the score lines on the little boxes correctly, as in the photo above, you will hide all of the glue tabs and end up with a nice solid base.
The 4 little boxes inside act as dividers and they're removable. You can use them all or just some of them, depending on the size of your item(s). I love this design, but ... Lori also has other styles so, be sure to check those out and pick the one that's best for your father.
I hope you like this fun gift box idea. Since Father's Day is Sunday, June 18 you still have plenty of time to get your crafty pants on! 😉
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and happy crafting.
