Cutting Cafe Wednesday- All about the Boys

Our little grandson has a birthday coming up soon.  He's all boy...he loves sports, tools, exploring, airplanes, fishing, Spider Man and everything his Daddy does.

I just fell in love with this All About Boys Colored Background Set from The Cutting Cafe

Regina has designed  this background to match all the SU colors perfectly.  I paired it with one of my favorite templates...The Pencil Box.  I just printed out two copies of the lid template and popped one on the bottom of the box for extra color and dimension.   I added zig-zag and straight stitching to reinforce the box and add more color.  The "happy birthday"  sentiment is from the Happy Birthday 40 Ways set. 

Fun and colorful...just like a boy!  Any ideas what I should put in the box?

Paper - SU Night of Navy, The Cutting Cafe
Accessories - SU retired ribbon, brads, Spellbinders Ribbon Tag die
Technique - Stitching

Pin It!
