Thankful Thursday DT : PIRATES

 Hello !! Welcome back to another Thankful Thursday hosted by Crazy About Cricut. This weeks project was all about PIRATES!!! So, what better project for my lil man and I. ( as if my teenage daughter has any interest anyways.. hehe )  Anyways, my lil man and I had a BLAST with this. He has a new LOVE for Helmar "bloo". We really made big messes, but even BIGGER memories. I got the idea HERE  but tweeked it to fit us. 
Here ya go... This will be VERY picture heavy!! I just loved them all!!! 
We printed the templates off the site above and gathered a few other materials : a box, colored cardstock, Helmar glues, scissors, and score pal. 
My lil guy colored the "hardware" from the printables. 
Colton had a BLAST with Helmar Acid Free Glue. He glued the yellow and spread while I added the black to the outside and red (velvet) on the inside.
I used 2 different sized circle puches and made "gold coins". I used Helmar Acid Free glue to adhere inside the chest.
The "KEEP OUT", key, lock, and handles are all from the printable.
What PIRATE Chest is complete without a PIRATE??
And.. the matey's...
Aren't they soo CUTE!!!

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed our PIRATE project. We had a blast with this one. Be sure to visit Crazy About Cricut and find out what kind of TREASURES you can win!!
Happy Crafting Mateys...
