Father's Day Tag Box & Winner

Hi Everyone
It's Fathers Day here in a couple of weeks and I have been using Kaisercraft's new Hunt and Gather Collection to make some gifts

The collection incorporates heaps of outdoorsy themes such as hunting, fishing, camping but also has a good collection of general nature related prints too. 
I will be showing all the projects on this shelf (including the shelf itself!) in the upcoming weeks. There are a couple of mini-albums, magnets and several types of journal.

I am going to show one project in detail every couple of days, but here is a compilation of the other projects I have finished. All the journals and tins have little surprises in them too.

My Dad has many hobbies and is an avid collector of all kinds of fishing and insect related books and memorabilia. He is also a dedicated list-maker so I decided to decorate this box and fill it with a variety of blank notes he could use as filing slips, bookmarks etc.


The index tabs I made using plain chipboard, ATC cards and the sticker sheet are blank for him to complete (I will include a set of small letter stickers when I give it to him) and hopefully it will be both a decorative and useful item.



For the pages I have simply cut cardstock from dollar store pads to size and stamped on them with images from the Hunt and Gather stamp set. I rolled some through a paper crimper to give a bit of added texture.



I also used the beetle stamp to decorate the front of the box. I used Stayzon ink to ensure it dried fast on top of the mod-podge.


In case you are wondering how the box started out - it was a Kaisercraft Beyond the Project. They are made from MDF and come flat packed. You just decorate and glue together.


I painted the box with two coats of dark brown paint and then attempted a crackle finish which failed miserably! I then just dry brushed over the failed cream finish with a bit more brown and some black acrylic paint before individually sealing each piece with glossy mod-podge.

Normally I wouldn't do this but I wanted a shiny finish to make it look like old oak.
