Father’s Day Sizzix Treat Box!

We are getting down to crunch time, so this Father’s Day Sizzix treat box will be my last Father’s Day project to show you.
My parents are going to Ireland in a few weeks, so they have asked that instead of gifts, they would like us to give money so they can purchase souvenirs, since my dad is semi-retired and this trip was kind of a surprise. Well, that’s all fine and dandy, but I don’t want to just give money in a card, so I thought I would put it in with some fun treats for him.
I loved the wood grain on this particular sheet from Bo Bunny‘s Trail Mix 12×12 Collection Pack and combined with Sizzix Bigz Pro Die – Box, Tall with Scallop Flap, it created a mini cabin look. Well, some might say it looks like an outhouse, but either way it looks rustic, so we’ll just leave it up to my dad as to what he sees. Point-there is no half moon on the front!

I used two sheets out of the Trail Mix Collection Pack. One for the box and one for the Window and sign. The lantern was hand cut out of the back side of the wood grain sheet. I wanted it to look like a window so I chose the sheet with some foilage to give it more interest and inked around the edges for dimension. I put the sign on adhesive foam squares to give it some dimention, broke up a stick that my nephew left in my car (it was the perfect size) and placed the pieces around the window as a rough frame. I glued the lantern to one side of the frame. I inked the scallops on the roof with black soot to give it a burnt wood look and to help it stand out.
