Give Dad some treatsor for good old Dad

This is a project that my stamp club gals made at the end of May.  For this project the ladies tried out the Color Spritzer tool to give the box an aged/distressed look.  They had fun puffing away with that tool to get the little specks of ink on the finished project.  The box is easy-peasy to assemble, since all of the hard work is done by the Sizzix die.  I used More Mustard in 12×12 to cut the box; I was able to get two boxes per sheet.  You can cut it from 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, just line it up over the die to shorten the tab that you glue to hold the box together.  The Cajun Craze band was cut from 11" cardstock – the overlap is hidden behind the sailboat image.
