TableTop DIY Card Holders

So in the beginning of December my girlfriend started making a Tardis Christmas tree topper. While looking up ideas and patterns I found a DIY video by Paul the DIY Guy on how to build a card holder. He also has a lot of other cool ideas and you should check him out.

TableTop DIY Card Holders

So in the beginning of December my girlfriend started making a Tardis Christmas tree topper. While looking up ideas and patterns I found a DIY video by Paul the DIY Guy on how to build a card holder. He also has a lot of other cool ideas and you should check him out.

So after watching the video I thought Id give it a try and build one. Even tho I’ve never built anything like this before. After the video I used the measurements he gave and followed the instructions. But I found that some of the numbers were off  and had to make some quick fixes now that everything was put together.

These took a few days to do, maybe a little bit longer because I’ve never done this before haha. But once it was all done it could fit any Magic The Gathering card, even big enough to hold Fluxx & Smash UP. For Christmas got Cthulhu Dice, but it didn’t come with any bag or box. So once I was finished with the Tardis I started working a Cthulhu Box 🙂 I think it turned out amazing and it fits the game.

So once I finished that one I started working ANOTHER box, only for my girlfriend’s brother this time. Being that her brother is a rather big Pokemon fan, I found my new theme and ran with it. After a little trial and error I worked the idea of taking the Pokemon Ball and turn it into a box. It basically took me 8 hours over two days to make this. It went by so fast haha.

I had to make a custom front for the top, to give it that round button look. I think it turned out rather well and yes her brother enjoyed it :). So right now I want to make more, I’m just trying to come up with ideas. It’s an easy idea/project, it just takes time…. Lots of time haha. The measurements I used goes as follows:

You’ll need some plastic canvas. You can find this at any arts and crafts store. The way you measure is by counting the squares.

You need: TWO 22 x 8 (Front & Back Top Sides), Two 16 x 8 (Sides For The Top), ONE 20 x 26 (Front), ONE 20 x 28 (Back), TWO 14 x 28 (Sides), ONE 20 x 14 (Bottom), One 22 x 16 (Top).

So you can take this and do what you will :D. I know I had fun making them and plan on making more. Both me and my girlfriend were even thinking about opening up an Etsy Store at some point. Because her Tardis came out Amazing-Balls!! Hope you guys enjoyed this and let us know what you think!! Leave comments and ideas below.

Week Full Of Random Goings On

So we’ll kick off this post with a Christmas gift that I order a long time ago. It just got here this week…. Yeah… I order a Stargate themed t-shirt for my girlfriend because she is a nerd like that. BUT this is what I got: first picture is the shirt shown on the website.  The second picture is the shirt I got in the mail.

The shirt I got, the whole “seven-chevron” code was messed up and missing the key symbol at the end. So I wrote the company (Big Mouth Clothing) an email stating. ” The shirt that came was completely different from the picture.  Plus the “Stargate”code is wrong and or cut off. Order #106-*******-5209052
would like to know what can be done? I can take a picture and send it to you so you can see.” This is what I got in return:

I was rather shocked that they were able and/or willing to fix the problem.  I haven’t received the replacement shirt yet, so the judgment is still out on that aspect. But customer service was nice and easy to work with. 
So after dealing with all that we went out and about.  Shopping for the normal stuff, when we found out this painting was on sale.  We’ve been eyeing the picture for a week or two, just didn’t have enough money for it.

A-MAZING!! It’s been a long time sense I’ve just looked at a picture and say, “I need that.” Makes me happy!
Then the following day I found a copy of Star Fluxx! Always Love this game.

Than to basically wrap up the week me and the girlfriend started making a fat kid’s wet dream.  CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE, REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUP, BROWNE CUPCAKE!
