Have you got the best Tool Box? WOW project.


I thought I would share this project with you even though the Occasions catalog from which most of these supplies came from is gone and the products are retired and no longer available.

If you are are regular follower of my site you know that I have been posting a lot of projects made with the Urban Underground suite that was in the Occasions 2017 catalog. I had not yet shared this project because I was not going to give a how to on making it. There will only be one!

I have seen similar ones pop up on Pinterest over the last five months. I made mine back in early January and just never got pictures taken nor shared it. Life happens. But it is still a cute project and still worthy of sharing, especially with Fathers Day coming up in the US on June 18, 2017.

I did start with a retired box from Stampin' Up! and put a few empty green glue bottles for weight inside.

It was a fun project, and took me about an hour to make. Not a lot of time, but a lot of brain work to make it. And I love the pop of blue, Pacific Point, on the handles of the tools against the black and gold of the tool box/tool chest.

Supplies: Urban Underground product suite from Stampin' Up!, Build It framelits, Urban District, Nailed It, gold foil paper, Layering Ovals framelits, etc.

I wish you luck if you decide to make a similar project. It took a very steady hand to get the gold foil edging on the drawer cut straight and glued on straight. Precision work is not my forte. But I can suck it up once in a while to do it for such a cute project.

Now what do I do with this? Save it? Not sure of the fate of the cute little tool box.

Thank you for stopping by and following along with my daily adventures on my blog. I appreciate my loyal audience!

Keep being creative, Sandy

 Some depth to the box.

 It's in the details!

 A "framed" sign for the top of the box for inspiration.

Side view, you can see the depth I added.
