It's nearly the weekend and we are already halfway through April.
Today we have another Gone Fishing project, this
time from Neil.
Neil says -
Fishing is a pretty popular pastime for many men in this country,
so I thought I'd use my Shoal book cover kit to make something
that could be useful when out fishing. (And something that I enjoyed
making as a crafter too!)
I bet you think it's a book don't you? Well you would be.........
I thought I'd make a box, ideal for your fisherman to keep some of
his tackle in.
Begin by cutting one of the covers into strips using the enclosed
spine as a guide. This will give you 8 pieces in total.
Add some double sided tape to the laser cut element.
Trimming the edges of the strips as needed add them to the element
to create the lid of your box. Reinforce with paper tape or similar.
Repeat this process with the base and the remaining strips to
create your base box. Remember to keep the inner box smaller
than the the outer lid. You want to be able to close it.....
Paint the box white and then add some colour with the green.
Cut some paper to size to line the base of your box and your lid.
Seal your box with a matte medium to protect it and your box
is complete and ready to be filled with fishy treats......."
What a lovely project for the fisherman in your life
and don't forget Fathers Day is not far away, this would
make a lovely gift!
So, this is what Neil used -
Thank you Neil, a brilliant project from you as always!

project, this time from none other than....Moi!!
