Well I'm back from the excruciating 3-day househunting trip. We did make an offer on a house and will find out tonight if it is accepted. Please remind me never to move again, ever!
Yesterday was my Dad's birthday. He's a man of many tools, so Sears Craftsman Gift Cards were the perfect gift for him. I also wanted a neat way to present the gift cards, and since I knew that this week's Scoreboard Blog Hop die would be the Rectangle Box, a tool box leapt right to mind.
And there (in mind) has it sat since last week because I didn't have time to make the darn thing!
I had to e-mail Dad and say that his gift would be late.
But today, while listening to a new roof being installed on our house (you're welcome, future new owners!), I was able to make my little tool box gift card holder for Dad. I'm joining the Blog Hop very late, but here it is:

I found the mini tools in the dollhouse aisle at Hobby Lobby. I also found the hinges and clasp there. The rest of the supplies are from my stash: rub-ons, cardstock, glossy accents, elastic, brads, and leather cording.
You can get all the info on the Scoreboard Blog Hop by visiting Eileen Hull's blog. Here are more projects using this die:

Me: Emma, you accused your brother of something he didn't do. Apologize and get on with life. Emma: begrudgingly Sorry. Karl: She's probably stereotyping me. Me: Stereotyping you? Karl: Yeah, because I usually eat all the pancakes.)
