Happy Birthday Matey!

Ahoy! Roberta here from TXScrapperMom. I've been very busy crafting the last few days, but tonight I crafted for a special event - my nephews birthday! I made a little gift set to go with his present, which includes a card and a little treasure chest filled with some sweets...yum! This is actually my very first ALL Imagine project, so I was especially excited to share with you all today!!



Here's a closer look at the card...


With this being a fairly new cartridge, I thought I'd give you a

quick tutorial on assembling the chest...

These are all the pieces in the cut...

Fold all the tabs along the edges...


Assemble the bottom first (that's the easy part :));

then adhere the half circle to the tabs...

And voila!! Cute, huh?!

Thanks for stopping by! Comment are always greately appreciated - I LOVE to read them! And fyi, I am fairly new to the world of tutorials, so if it totally doesn't make sense, let me know :)

Yo ho ho to you! You did an amazing job and wish I had a boy to make it for. Maybe next time as we will soon have 3 granddaughters.LOL Getting close to an Imagine on rewards. I can't wait after seeing this great project.

ROTFLOL!!! I don't have any "little" boys but when I saw the chest I had to have the cart!!!
I made one too...but how did you get it to stay closed? At first the little pin worked but after that I couldn't get it to stay closed.
Hey SUZANNE- when you get your imagine just lay girly designer cardstock down and have the imagine "CUT ONLY" and then you'll have a GIRLY HOPE CHEST!!!

Great project and tutorial!! I keep telling myself that I don't need that Imagine cartridge but every time I see a project made with it, my resolve weakens! :-)
