Father's Day Keepsake Box with Xyron

 Hi and welcome to the end of May, lol...with that being said it is time to start thinking of making some fun and fabulous Father's Day gifts. I am sharing with you my Father's Day Keepsake Box that I will be giving to my honey this year.
 I began by getting an old cigar box that I have hoarded forever and began by painting it with Black Chalkboard Paint from DecoArt.
 Oh how I love this "NEW" Xyron Creative Station and let me tell you why...I cut all of my Graphic 45 pieces out for the inside of my Cigar Box. (Repeated it for the outside.)  NOW....
Look how amazing this is...see how large a piece of paper that the "NEW" Xyron Creative Station can add adhesive to. AMAZING!!!
 Do you see that it is a continuous feed of adhesive or you can just do each piece at a time and use the trimmer on the back of the Creative Station to separate each piece.
 I used my Create a Sticker MAX to run all my strips through BUT I could have used the Xyron Creative Station to do this also by just changing the adhesive runner in the machine.
 Add your prepared pieces to the lid ....
 AND to the inside of the box.
 Add all fun journal pieces along with a dimensional dragonfly to the top of the box.
 A bit of metal and more journal and die cut pieces. 

Don't forget to add a knob to the top of box and some fun metal legs. I hope you are inspire to make a fun and easy Father's Day Keepsake Box for someone special in you dad, father-in-law or your honey. Hugs Pammejo
