Father's Day Tool Cookies -- part 2



Welcome back to Father's Day Week! 

In case you are wondering....this is still the perfect plan. I am determined that the anticipatory celebration of the holiday will only serve to increase the fun (havoc) on the actual day. So far, my children have destroyed the house in their search for those elusive ties we bought six months ago in preparation for Father's Day. They broke my husband's tape measure while fighting over who got to put the tape part back inside the case. My 5 year-old got jealous that there is a Father's Day and is now making his own plans for Children's Day....which according to him will be on Monday and my husband is expected to give him a gift and a toy and a treat. Also, due to some 2-year-old temper tantrums, we had waffles for dinner last night, instead of meat on a plate. All in all, this week has been wildly successful so far, and I just can't wait to see what the next few days bring!

At least we know that in internet-land, today brings the attachment of the toolbox pattern. (Yeay!! Cheering! Everyone's pretending to be excited with me!!) (You guys are awesome.) It's a word document. Just click on it, open it up and print 2 copies. Cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. It's like kindergarten all over again. Except this time, you can totally choose super fun patterned paper and you have my permission to use the glue un-supervised. I punched a hole in the sides and added a sucker-stick handle...but it's your craft. Do what you want.

I don't really know why I took pictures of all these tools as I decorated them. They are pretty self-explanatory. But umm...you know....here it is in case you want to look at it.

This one has a fun step though. First, outline the whole wrench with a #3 tip and fill in the ends using 15 count icing. Let that dry for a couple of hours. Then under fill the middle section with the same 15 count icing. Run a toothpick around the edges to separate it from the sides. Let it dry and think that you are cool. Or, at least, don't ruin it for me. I mean, you could totally stop at step 2 and that would be just fine. I'm just here to enable, not to judge. 

Don't forget we are going to have a Father's Day link party on Friday-ish. This whole living on the other side of the world kind of messes with my time frames. "Time frames?" Does that even make SENSE to anyone?
