Tool Box

Monday, June 28, 2010
I meant to post this project last week on Thursday. However, thing didn't work as I planned. My 19-month old daughter had an emergency and was rushed to the hospital. Anyway, she's doing so much better now, and we actually had a great Fathers' Day.

Let's go back to the project. I made this tool box specially for my husband. He needed a new tool box. So, on Fathers' Day, my children gave their dad this tool box....and later on that day, we surprised him with a real one. He was very happy with 2 tool boxes.

This project isn't hard to make, and doesn't require a lot of supplies. Also, you can go above and beyond to decorate it. I chose to leave it as simple as possible.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you soon.

Fathers' Day Card

Monday, June 14, 2010
It's less than a week 'till Fathers' Day. So, a few days ago, I made this card for my husband, the father of my children :) I've learned to make the Shirt Origami from a fellow CTMH sister, Nona Pearl . It's really easy and fun.

I tried to type a pdf. tutorial for the shirt, however...I've never done something like that before...and I screwed up. So, I chose to type it here. I hope it helps.

1. Take a 4x6 patterned paper
2. Fold in half the long way
3. Then fold in each side to meet in the center
4. Turn over so flaps are facing down
5. Fold 'the top' down 1/2 inch
6. Flip back to the front side, and fold in the flaps so the corner meet in the center
7. Fold the bottom flaps out to make the sleeves
You can leave the shirt as is, or add brads for buttons

I have a couple more projects to share specially to celebrate dads. So, be sure to come back tomorrow. Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!!
