How to Make
Cut a piece of kraft card to 27cm
x 12cm, score it at 9cm and 18cm to get the fold for your card.
Cover each panel with patterned
paper. We picked the cream check paper from the Dovecraft Back to Basics True
Blue paper pack for our card.
To create the belt for your
folding card, cut a 4cm x 29.6cm piece of kraft cardstock and add double sided
tape on the bottom before sticking to the top of the card to ensure the tape is
not visible on the back.
To make the two pockets, we have
used cut out two 8.2cm squares from the repeat arrow paper and cut the bottom
corners diagonally. Use double sided tape to stick the sides and bottom of the
pockets and stick to the first two panels of the card. With textured cardstock,
die cut ‘Best Dad’ with the alphabet die set and stick to the first panel
On the third panel, we created a
hammer loop by cutting a piece of kraft card to 2.7cm x 6.8cm and covering it
with the arrow patterned paper which was cut to 2.3cm x 6.2cm. Use tape to
stick the sides of paper and stick 2.7cm down from the top of the tool belt.
To finish, we have added faux
stitching around the card and decorated with some adhesive dots to the belt and
We have used the free printable
template from the tool box gift box tutorial and enlarged it on a word document
to fit in the tool belt pockets. Use the kraft paper to make the handle of your
hammer and make the remaining tools with silver mirror card.
