A Father's Day Gift with Guy Greetings

Today I have for you something a little different to share.  No card involved, but there is a little bit of stamping. :)  My cousin's wife posted on facebook that she was looking for an idea for a Father's Day gift and her friend suggested something called a Man Crate.  Well, let's just save you time from going to the website and just point out that those are pretty pricey!  I did like the concept though and decided to team up with my hubby for a project.  We ended up making our own - filled with what his dad really likes for a fraction of the cost!

We took some scraps of wood big enough to make a box to hold the goodies we picked out at the store.  Here's our middle son helping out. :)

Snacks ready to go!

After the box was ready and packed, it was my turn (and Andrew's turn) to help decorate the box.  I would suggest maybe decorating the wood pieces first... it was a little inconvenient to stamp upright.
Andrew did a great job sponging.

I stamped the Happy Father's Day sentiment and the "guy" from Guy Greetings and then added some splatters from Gorgeous Grunge.  

I also added "please deliver to" with the new Labeler Alphabet but the ink ended up bleeding more than I would've liked.  The Happy Father's Day (on top) and the name were made using the Layered Letters Alphabet.

And you need a tag for a gift, right?  This was a quick and simple tag to make.  Love this sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set.

I ended up videoing him opening the gift so I had to take a still shot of the video.  He had to use a crowbar to open the gift.  It was a fun gift to make and I know he really enjoyed it!

I also made my husband a gift, but nothing as involved.  Here's a simpler version.  I forgot to take a picture of the cards the boys stamped.  I'm always impressed by how well they do!

I hope that you all had a great weekend and a great first day of summer here in the US.

Thanks for (always) stopping by!  Remember, stamping can be more than just a card! :)
