My husband plays the card game Magic. When we go out of town, he is always taking his cards with him. So for Christmas, I made him a custom magic card tote. He LOVED
it! I was pretty happy, because it took forever
to complete. But I am really happy with the finished product. I copied the backs of magic cards and decoupaged a lunch box, and a card tin for his counters n' such.
I also made up some fake cards to decorate the box. I scanned a card, added my own picture and changed the text to something funny that describes him. Here's an example (He's also real big into video games) It's the best I could do with my limited knowledge of paint, I think they turned out pretty good.
I also drilled a hole in a 20 sided die, and added it as a charm on the side he can use as a life counter.
On the inside I made dividers to separate his different decks, and the counter box I made. On the inside of the lid, I decoupaged a magnet to look like a card to hold an occasional rare card or trade, untill he adds it to a deck. It looks very realistic. when he saw it he was trying to figure out why this card was stuck to the lid. voila my husband's Christmas gift!
