What do you get the man who has everything for Father’s Day? My husband is really difficult to buy for as he has everything he needs. The children have been busy making cards but I thought it would be fun to make a Father’s Day crate we could fill with gifts which would also be useful for storage.
Father’s Day crate supplies:
Cricut StandardGrip mat
Cricut Black Vinyl
Wooden crate from Ikea
Cricut Transfer Tape
How to make a Father’s Day crate
Open Cricut Design Space and create a new project. Choose a font, I chose Cricut Sans Normal, and type in the words you want. I chose Dad’s Shed Box, and measured my crate to make sure the words would fit.
I then set the Cricut machine to cut the text from black vinyl.
Then I was able to trim the vinyl and weed the excess away before adding Transfer Tape.
I bought a wooden crate from Ikea which I sanded and painted in a gorgeous mustard colour. Then I carefully measured where I wanted the words to be placed, removed the film and pressed over the transfer tape with a scraper to make sure the vinyl would adhere to the crate.
Then I was able to carefully remove the transfer tape to reveal the label.
I can’t wait to fill the crate with some special treats, like my husband’s favourite bottles of beer and a Toblerone or two. When he’s enjoyed the contents he’ll be able to use the crate for storage in his shed, or to put all his bit and bobs so they don’t clutter up the kitchen!
