He'll be hooked the moment he sees the package! Whatever you put inside... 

{maybe these DIY Rustic Coasters, for example?  
}

...part of the fun of gift giving is the presentation!

Can you believe this is paperless gift wrapping?!
This chip board box held Earl Gray tea, but turn it inside out and now you have a blank canvas. See how in the paperless gift wrap tutorial *here.*

Make a major splash by embossing just three simple images: a fish, a fishhook, and a sentiment you like. The embossing tutorial is *here.* Embossing is a simple and quick process.


Tackle the fish by using two different colors of embossing powder. Sprinkle a green embossing powder on the fish tops. Tap off the excess and pour it back into the container. Repeat for the blue embossing powder on the bottom of the fish. Don't you love the two-tone effect?!

You can really set a mood with just a few well-chosen stamps that you use again and again. Check out the woodgrain gift box *here.*

The fishhooks are embossed with a brown distressed powder to make them look rusty. Attach the metallic embossed sentiment with a piece of wire to simulate a fish hook.


And of course here is a coordinating card! Also for guys, you can *check out a different card here.*

Take the bait and try embossing for yourself! It's fun to see that design raise up. It's easy to tackle, yet looks so professional.
