Go Fish!

Yay PTI release night! I love this night.. all the sneak previews leading up to it.. so much excitement. I want everything! :)

Today's project was something I put together for the May Guest Star Stamper contest. I love Lauren's Timeless Templates, it makes gift packaging so easy. We see so many great gifts for sisters or moms or friends, but not so much for guys. So I tried to think of something that would be appropriate for a man's gift - simple, easy and no-fuss. My brother is a big fisherman, and I thought it would be a great gift to put together a little something for a fisherman.

I used the Captured Card Case to make a Go Fish box!

The base of the box is Soft Stone, the lid is Spring Moss. I stamped one of the images from Background Basics: Retro over the entire lid - I thought the pattern resembled fish scales! Then I added a simple strip of Ocean Tides cardstock. I used the little fishies from Pond Life and the Fresh Alphabet to create the main image. It was stamped on a Top Note that had been cut from Soft Stone.

I created a divider for the inside and lined it with some paper filling, then I added some fancy fishing lures to complete the gift! What do you think? Know any guys that would love the opportunity to hit the water with these? I thought it would make a great Father's Day gift. Thank you for stopping by - hope to see you on the PTI forum tonight for the release!
