Canoe guy gift box
Oh my gosh this project was so rewarding. I was totally putting this one off because it intimidated me a little but it went together with ease and was really fun to decorate. Moral of my story no matter how complicated something looks give it a go.
SVG cut file is from Simplycraftsvgs.com. You must check out her site as there are so many wonderful designs there to choose from.
I used swiss dot cardstock by Bazzill Basics for the base of the box and the lid. I love how the dots gave it good texture and dimension.
I used a little jute string around the paddles to give it a little flare and I like the way that turned out. I wish I would have placed the paddles a little more to the left, however the glue adhearded fast and well I was then committed to having them there,but hey no body is perfect.
The fish I added are from Cricit design space and I used gray cardstock for them. I stamped the "It's Your Day" and then cut around the words to give it a wavy look. Which I thought would go with the theme of the box.
The rest of the supplies are from my scraps stash but you can find the cardstock on our website. We carry brand names such as American Crafts, Bazzill Basics and Petersen Arne. As always if you have any questions regarding our store please don't hesitate to ask. We are always happy to help.
