Just thinking outside the Chess King Box

Afternoon All!
Take a walk down to the barber shop and get a haircut and a shave! While looking at the new kit King of the Castle I got the idea to make the Chess King Box SVG into a Barber Pole. I have another idea brewing but I won't give that one a way for a while yet! Let's get to cutting!

I cut the Chess King Box all out of white cardstock.  Using some Doodle bug paper for the 4th of July, I cut the accent pieces removing the lines and cut outs by ungrouping and deleting them. Instead of using the last patterned piece for the top outside of the box I cut another main_2_black using white cardstock and adhered that to the top of the other. I cut the octagon from the cross_white and another octagon .25 smaller than the first to put on top of the first octagon. The top of the Barber pole is made using a white pebble, a button and a spare parts knob from Hobby lobby. I adhered them to each other using Ranger Glossy Accents.
I cut the two side pieces for main_1_black out of sliver foil cardstock from Michaels and cut an extra main_2_stone out of white then embossed it with sizzix flourishes emboss folder.  The last step was to put sticky tape to a 1/4 white ribbon and adhere it around the bottom. Follow Leo's Video on how to put it all together and your all set with your barber pole.

Make this for your dad who cut your hair in the backyard or that dad who collects barber memorabilia. Either way you cut it, your going to come in looking pretty spiffy with that gift for dad and you'll be king or queen for the Day!
Happy Father's day y'all and Happy Crafting!
