I made a dozen of these suckers. They are part of a grand plan for table decorations for the oldest son's Eagle Scout reception. The pattern for the knife came from a Klutz book about Mini-books. The red part of the knife is covered in red duct tape.
If you haven't checked out Duct tape recently it comes in a bunch of great colors and has lots of good altering and scrapping possibilities!!
I made the scout emblem using ink jet shrinky dink "paper". Fun, fun, fun. If you haven't tried it .. I totally recommend it. I felt like a kid.. peeking in the oven window watching it curl and shrink- flashbacks of Easy Bake Oven days for sure.
Personally, I think my favorite part are the brads that look like real screws. Why oh why do things like that make my day?
Anyway- I didn't have to run to the store for a thing... guess I was "Prepared".
