I've seen a couple of images floating around blog land for a seriously cool Father's day gift and I knew it was the thing we had to make this year.
Tori over at js.com made this super elven kit for her husband. We are BIG TIME LOTR fans around here so I was happy to see such a geeky twist on this idea.
Every Thursday is Hybrid Thursday and it is really inspiring. I just love seeing what the gals come up with!

So, being the super geek that I am, I decided to make my own nerdy version for Colin. We are big fans of Star Trek (I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it before!) and that was the theme we went with. It's a UFC ration box packed by 3 very special little cadets for Captain Crowley's long road ahead during the Borg war.
I know everything looks similar and it's definitely not as cool as the previous two, but it is supposed to be a ration box. I wanted it to look a bit uniform and standard issue-ish. :)
We're driving to Legoland in the morning so I'm going to sneak this into the car and we'll surprise him with it on Sunday morning.
This isn't his only gift, though. For his heroic efforts during the Borg invasion, the Klingon high council has bestowed quite an honorable gift upon Captain Crowley. Only the finest warriors are given the Boar Flagon.
I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day on Sunday!
