{MANLY} Card

Last night I didn’t have a clue what to get Justin for Valentine’s day and then today my mom showed me the manly card ideas on Studio5.com.  I have to admit I haven’t watched the show all week (because I’m cheesed they didn’t pick my five dollar craft challenge entry as a finalist).  But anyhoo,  I love that this card is {FUNNY}, {FUNTIONAL} and {INEXPENSIVE}.  Seriously, you can’t beat that! 

(5X7 piece of metal for the backing of the card)

When I went to Lowe’s to pick up supplies they had a section of mini tools for $1.98.  Then over in the roofing department they have these 5×7 pieces of metal for fifty cents.  Woot! Woot!  I love an inexpensive project! The technical term for it is galvanized shingle flashing.  That’s just a little FYI for ya in case you get lost in the big box DIY store and you have to ask someone in a blue vest for help.  I’ve got to get it finished after the kiddos go to bed tonight.  I still need to find the ice pick to punch holes on either site of the wrench and secure it to the card with a twisty tie.  There were some other cute ideas and you can download them for {FREE}!  Some of the ideas could be changed around a bit and work for Father’s Day too.  I’m soo glad I have a little something to give to Justin on Valentine’s Day now!
