#1 Dad

Happy Father's Day to all of you dads out there.  Thought I'd celebrate by making a submission for the SVG Cuts Father's Day Challenge.  I used the following kits for this candy box:  SVG Cuts 3D Numbers Party SVG Kit, for the number 1; SVG Cuts 3D letters SVG Kit (the DAD sized at 35%); SVG Cuts All About Dad SVG Kit (for the Hawaiian shirt); SVG Cute Hula Girl Free SVG File (for the ukulele); and SVGCuts 3D Flowers SVG Kit Part II (the Queen Anne's Lace for the little flowers).

I made a small alteration on the number 1.  I did not glue the top  of the number 1 down, but left it open so that it turned it into a box.  I then added a window in the front so you could see the candy that I added. The flowers were cut in white and inked, with brads for the centers.  I started to stick the brads prongs through the buds, but after a few I started to cut the prongs off totally and just glued the brad onto the flowers.

The pattern on the front is actually from a photo I took of the back of my husband's favorite Hawaiian shirt.  I took it into Photoshop, and then printed it out on cardstock.  I then changed the color to green for the shirt, and printed that paper as well.  All cuts were made with my Sizzix Eclips cutting machine.

I will be giving this to my husband on Sunday (Father's Day).  It was really custom made for him, as he is always wearing Hawaiian shirts.  He also builds ukuleles (he pretty much lives in his garage workshop).  And, I added one of his favorite candies.  Thanks for taking a look.  Come back and see what's next real soon!

Happy Father's Day, Dads!
