Golfing Card and Golf Tee Gift Box

Pin It
Hello everyone, Mondays seem to race around for me. This week we had fun making this Golfing card and gift box. The Golf Tee Gift Box is not my original idea but inspired fron a talented person from splitcoast stampers. I tried to find her original one but could'nt sorry whoever you are but thankyou so much for sharing your talent. The golf ball and backing plus box flap were embossed using cuttlebug and i didnt have a tee stamp so i made this a stamp out of some foam which worked well. The letter U if from one of my sizzix alphabet sets called Boxed Brush and the grass is a punch. I bought a pack of 100 golf tee's at a great price off ebay and just had enough for the lesson. The box is closed using a strip that wraps around the box and then decorated with the ball, tee and grass. Ive inked around all the edges except the ball, punched 1/4 inch holes for the tees to sit in and added some Crystal shred around the tees to imitate grass. It was a fun project for the ladies which I'm sure the men will love. Here's a pic of the box open.

The dimensions of the box are differnt to the original i seen because of the length of the tees i bought which were 7cm long. So you would have to take that into concideration when you make your own. Well i hope this has inspired you to do something for the men in your life as i know this can be quite hard where card making is concerned.

and a last thought

Don't you realise that you choose your owm master?
