60th Birthday

My Brother in law is turning 60 soon and I wanted to make 'something different' he's a real kiwi bloke so I knew it had to be very masculin oriented. Having made the star box on Crafters Anonymous I thought I would put a similar concept into being and cut out a 6 and a 0 and see if I could make a box out of the 60. Well this is what I came up with. Using the Disney Mickey Font I cut 2 6's in DSP and 2 6's in plain card stock, I did the same with the 0's. Then I decided the lid would be 1.5 iches and the bottom would be 5 cm I do swap between measurements (sorry). Then I just put them together. Well I used hide contour for the bottom pieces so they didn't cut the holes in the middle. and on the top holes I used plastic to have a see through top on the boxes. I used the Cricut Handyman Lite cartridge to cut the tools on the top, some ribbon I had in my stash and some Happy birthday stickers from a day I went to some 2 years ago.


  1. It is really a special present! Happy birthday to your brother.

  2. I love it - so cute and practical too!
