After I cutout the first version of the FREE Slanted Gift Box SVG Design, it kind of looked like a tool box. I thought…I bet I could all a handle on the top and it would look like it. Sure enough. This is why I made this version and I wanted an excuse to use this Tim Holtz Idea-ology license plate paper.
I added the panels before I assembled the box.
I used my piercing tool to poke holds for my twine. I tied a not inside on each end to hold it. This twine is more rigid. I love it and have a few rolls of it from Ikea. I never saw it again, but it was a holiday item. I also added a large Fastenater staple to the front of the lid opening. If you have been around awhile, the Fastenator was a thick scrapbooking staple with stapler manufactured by EK Success. It has been discontinued. I still have a lot in my craft supplies though.
That was it! It will make a great gift box for one of the guys in my life. I hope you enjoy the free file!

Since this is the first stop in the Blog Hop, let’s get started with a Father’s Day Side by Side UTV box.
The Side by Side UTV SVG comes with square flags, but I wanted something different for this box. So, I created 2 triangular flags you often see on 4WD toys. This is easy to create within any software with basic shapes. I used triangles to make the flags with a union command from the software I was using, eCal 2. I used the Print2Cut feature to add the text. I cut and painted 2 skewers (like you get in the dollar store) black to wrap the flags around.
I also created the Happy Father’s Day label using Print2Cut in eCal 2, which is similar to the Print and Cut features in other software, like Cricut Design Space and Silhouette Studio. Then a melted perler bead, compliments my crafty sister, to the middle of the steering wheel, for the horn. A few black rhinestones form the middle of the tires.
I wanted to break up the color in the back, so I added a strip of black and white striped washi tape. I used white glitter cardstock for the front headlights and metallic red cardstock for the back lights.
As you can see, the back open up for a place to add a gift card or some Father’s Day goodies!
