Church Father's Day Gifts 2012

If you remember from previous years, I like to do a little something extra to go with the gift cards that our church gives out for Father's Day. Since guys are notoriously difficult to buy for, let alone make things for, I am always on the lookout for cute ideas. If I find one six months before Father's Day, I make a note of it!

I found this adorable mini toolbox idea (made from an Altoid tin) at Alphamom. Since I didn't have any of those boat things (er, metal eye straps) she used for handles, I had to improvise. In case you haven't guessed, I don't know my way around hardware stores very well. :)

What I did have were sawtooth hangers (my husband's great idea), and they worked just fine. They're not quite as realistic, but everyone loved them anyway.

So, what's inside? A Lowe's gift card with a hammer image on it - what else?

Enjoy!

I'd love to hear what your church gave out for Father's Day. You know, I'm going to need an idea for next year ...
