Hey everyone!
Welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! 

This week is all about the man and boys in our lives. 
We want you to create anything masculine.  Whether is to celebrate Father’s Day or for a birthday as long as it is masculine…. Bring it on!!

For this week we have three great sponsors:

$15 Gift Certificate 

Winner’s Choice of 7 Images

Winner's Choice of 5 Digital Stamps (not Sets)

For my project this week I made two cute mini tool boxes to celebrate Father's Day .  One for my brother and one for my DH.  I used the SVG set My Day With Dad from SVG Cuts.   This file is so stinkin cuteeeee!!  And you will think it's difficult to assemble but in fact it was really simple.

I created the names with the MTC program.  I love how easy it is to create a word art using that program.

For the :stainless steel" parts, I used a grey cardstock and added some pearl ex in silver. This added a lot of shine, too bad that in the photo you cannot appreciate it very well.

Here is a full view of the boxes:

I am including a list of the materials you will need to create this project.  They maybe not the ones I used since I had al the materials in my stash, but I found some great substitutes.  

Besides the materials linked in this post, I used the following from my stash:

some misc charms I purchased on E-bay
A little black button
Stamp set from Technique Tuesdays - Tool Time
Memento ink in Silver

I hope you have a great day and that you take the time 
to play this week with us ;)
