Father's Day Presents

I love creative packaging. And my Silhouette. When I get to combine the two together, it's pure love. When I saw the Strong Collection, I knew that there would be at least one Father's Day present in my future. I'm not sure however if this present will last until Father's Day, it's just a little too cute not to share early.
For the front of the packaging, I used a Mini Notes die cut, and added some black cardstock letters in a fun font. I love the newish blackboard trend, so used a white gel pen to add detail, then I smudged a white pigment ink pad on the letters to make them look like chalk had smeared on them. To give it some more interest, I pop dotted the Mini Note.
I created the box using the 3D Hamburger Box from the Silhouette Online Store. I added "hinges" using the Hinges and Tabs die cuts and a couple of brads.
Here is the open Hamburger box. Since I used the double sided Enduring paper, even the interior is decorated! I inked all the pieces with ImagineCrafts ink in Nautical Blue.
The shredded paper was create by cutting super thin strips of an 8x8" piece of Hero, which I then ran through a paper crimper.
Aren't these magnets the cutest? I used the Father's Day frames cut, but there are quit a few available files that would easily work the same. I used the Adhesive Magnet Paper from Silhouette to make the magnet backs, then cut the frame using Handsome. Add a photo in the center, and now it's a super cute framed magnet!
See the little circle magnets? Those are even easier! Those were just created by cutting circles from the magnet paper, then I added pieces of the Circle and Scallops die cuts and Zapdots.
The Adhesive Magnet Paper makes it easy to create these little gems.
I did keep the magnets pretty small so that they would fit into the Hamburger box. If I was to make them without the box, I probably would use a 4x4" photo. And the finished project all packed up and ready for gift giving.
