Anything But A Card at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week we want to see Anything But A Card with a masculine theme

I had a couple of ideas for this and then a week or so ago I went to a card class at Tulip Crafts in Ringwood. It's a lovely little shop right on the market place and the class it very small and friendly. This was my first week there and I'd seen the little watering cans that had been made previously and was so pleased when this is what we made. It was a printed template so all cut by hand as you can tell (apart from the circles for the spout).The sample was flower based but I knew I wanted to make it for OH's birthday so decided to to do a vegetable theme and finish it off at home. Unfortunately other events have meant that I couldn't make the 3D veggies I wanted to put on top so a quick solution was not to put the top on and fill it with mini chocolates. For the decoration I've used a pack of garden ties and a garden label with a birthday greeting on. When I make it again I'll it the silver card on the spout through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder

I'm also entering this into Miriam's Crafting Challenge which is Containers

We'd love to see what you come up with but please make sure it is masculine
