Adhesive for the Tool Box - GM4

It's Grungy Monday #4 - and a box of adhesive for Hubby
I missed last week's Grungy Monday technique because I currently don't have any Color Wash--but when I do, I'll give that technique a try.  For this week's Grungy Monday, Linda at Studio L3 has us working with Tim Holtz Texture Fades & Distress ink.  You can find the video HERE

I actually used TH new Texture Trades (Artful Muse set), which are ATC size, with walnut stain Distress ink for my tag.  I also used TH new stamp set (Reflections), which I've been wanting to use for a while--and I love it! 

I've been telling my DH I would make him a box for his MacBond adhesive...and I finally did!  I used TH Lost & Found paper stash for the box and cut out a border strip from the same paper as a box band.  The tag easily slips into the band, and stores into his tool box.  I used the two techniques on the tag on opposite sides (as shown by Tim in his video), and used one side for the title and the other side for the product info site.  

oops--please excuse the messy writing,
at least this is the back-side. lol
Guess I better go get a few more things crossed off my list.  Have a great day!   Lisa
