For Dad

This week Suzanne set the challenge to make something for Father's Day+ a gift. I can tell you - thanks to Suzanne - I will be so much ahead for ones - since we celebrate Father's Day in November in Sweden *lol*.
I wanted to make something different, so I browsed the web and found this wonderful tutorial to make a box in the shape of a tie. Thank you Kimberley for the wonderful tutorial. It was superquick to make and also so fun. I decided to only use cardstock - but you can of course use DP for the lid.

The reason why I only went with the blue cardstock was that I wanted it to be looking like a clean summer-tie. I therefore only added some bling in form of Dazzlers.

Ribbon to attach the little tag/card to go with the box are from the Doodlebug Limeade set.

I used the little Itty Bitty Slice of Pie from Lockhart. Coloured with my copics and cut it out with my nesties. Added it on several layers of DP from Basic Grey - also cut out with my nesties.

The reason why I went for the Itty Bitty Slice of Pie is because my Dad loves desserts and sweet things. I plan to fill this tie-shaped box with candy - but if I do that now - well - then I think none would be left for him in November ;-))

Looking fwd to see your projects for Father's Day. Remember to upload it on PCP or SCS using the keyword "TIOT22".

Kramisar and make sure to pop by tomorrow - that's when the sneak peaks of the new Anki's Sweethearts will start. Also - check out the store blog and the rest of the DTs projects.
