Verda's great tool belt card
card & Stampman's too
inspired me to make a Tool Belt Box template (though the pieces could also be used to make a card. In fact, you could make the box with some cards to go in it as a set of 'manly' cards for father's day) Or for women who work with tools, 'cause hey! that is actually MY drill in this photo, and I lurve it a lot. :0)
The finished tool belt box
is 5 6/8 inches wide x 4 3/8 inch high.
A tool belt card (standard size) is easy to make with the embellishments template
, but the top & bottom strip will need a trim (remove 1/8 of an inch off of one end.)
SO without further ado, here are the templates. Well, maybe a little ado...since they might need explanation: Many of you may find that you don't need the templates at all (these are all straight cuts.)
For you seasoned box makers (or adventurous newbies):
You may want to skip using the template like a clothes pattern and cut the parts by measurement. (The measurements are on the PDF instruction sheet.) If you're seasoned, but also very visual you may want to print the embellishment template just as visual inventory for making your cuts.
For those of you who are new to box-making:
Fear Not! It is easy I promise. You just need to know how to score & fold.
There are 3 Template attachments:
1) Main Box template (7 5/8" W x 10 2/8" H) and The Embellishments template (various measurements)
2) The Embellishments for a box or for a card (with measurements)
3) The instruction sheet (has measurements of box)
P.S. I'd love to hear what you think of this or see a link if you make it. Creative criticism is most welcome :0). Please let me know if you have any trouble.

That was a lot of ado! ;0) Here are the templates (finally):
