Crafty-Emblies have a new little challenge going and all you have to do is take a photo of your craft work space as it is RIGHT NOW .... no tidying up first LOL  !!!!

So here is mine

Well today Crafty-Emblies new challenge has gone live ... the theme this month was 'Make something for the boys/men'    click on the link at the left side of my blog which should take you straight to the Crafty-Emblies challenge blog and have a go, its so much fun taking part....

Here is what I came up with for my DT entry ..
I made the tool box from Crafty-Emblies small postcards for the front, back and the base.  I then used chip board for the ends and for the centre handle part ... You cant see in this photo but there are 2 compartments, one at the front and one at the back ... I thought the back compartment would be good for holding either a birthday/fathers day card or even a gift voucher ... 

I gave it all a coat of red paint then rubbed it off on the edges to give it a more used look . 

For the letters I used Crafty-Emblies 'Tools' the T is 2 spanners, the O's are from the 'gears' and the L is a hammer upside down.... I then painted the large screws and placed them in the front compartment.   The tools I used for the letters are made in bigger sizes and would look great in the compartments. 

Thank you for stopping by, dont forget to go to the Crafty-Emblies challenge blog and have ago at the challenge .... also check out the other Design Team makes they have made some great thing to inspire you.
