Gadgets Caddy

Hey friends! Happy Friday! Hope you have a fun crafty weekend in store! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft for the Craic and I’m stoked to share my GD inspiration project for the June Father’s Day/Masculine but Not a Card challenge! I’ve been playing with my Scan N Cut again, and used the awesome 3-Pocket Caddy cut file from Creations by AR to create this fun little Gadgets Caddy for my hubby’s desk. I’m so tickled with how this turned out! What a great little Father’s Day gift! ;)


One amazing thing (among many) is the ability to scan something into the Scan N Cut and then cut it out, which is what I did with the letters spelling ‘gadgets.’ I enlarged the AR Christy font to 58 pts in Word which I printed on cardstock, scanned the sheet and cut the letters out.  I adhered them to the oval which is actually one of the negative-space pieces from the handle! Yep, I use those scraps whenever possible! I added a tiny paperclip and adhered the oval to the front with foam strips. ;)


The paper is from the Crafters Companion Just For Men Urban Collection 6×6 paper pad. I inked the edges of all the paper pieces with Walnut Stain distress ink.


This caddy has three pockets (partitions) which will be great for holding all the little gadgets on my hubby’s desk. Can’t wait to give it to him! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
