Mr Fix It!

Hello everyone! It's me, Dena, today with a project for possibly Father's Day or any other male occasion.  I happen to have a Dad that can make anything with wood! He is the best handy man around!  So, I thought it only appropriate to make something with him in mind!

To create the tool box, simply fold a box base and then cut tags out the same width as the box for the sides.  I used my Cricut to cut out the tags and also cut out some thin cardboard to make the sides more sturdy. 

 This is what the side looks like.  I added a small strip of cardstock to the top for the handle.  You could add a dowel rod and insert in the tag holes, but I chose to make it this way since I didn't have a dowel rod handy.
All images are colored with distress inks and the paper is from Hobby Lobby with a washed wood grain look to it.  For the back I cut out some letters from my Cricut and glued them on.  The corners are half circles.

Such a cute little bear!  You can find "Mr Fix It" HERE at the Lili of the Valley shop.

Thanks for checking out the blog! I hope you are enjoying all the boy/male ideas!

Hugs, Dena
