Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Preview – Gone Fishin’

What an awesome set for guys! Perfect for the outdoorsy type! We all know bows and flowers won’t work for the men in our lives.

Nothing too interesting to say that you can’t figure out from the picture. So this is part one of this gift set…

This is part two. I used the tool box template from My Time Made Easy to make this great gift box. Inside is an instant coffee jar repurposed with a covered lid with trail mix inside. I meant to add some other stuff but I didn’t get it done in time. And even though it doesn’t include the images from this stamp set..

Here is part three! A fishing tackle box with…

…a drawer inside! I was going to put gummy worms and candy bugs inside but hubby forgot to buy them on his trip to the store. Bummer! I figure between the tool box and the tackle box you could package so many things for the guys in your life. Both boxes are large enough for a tie (of course!) bath and body products, jewellery, snacks, baked goods or candy, fishing items (not that I know what they are called beyond weights or lures) and CDs or movies would fit in the tool box!

I hope you are inspired to make something great for the guys in your life! Today is the last day for the reveal by Clear Dollar Stamps for June! But there are more posts coming up for two other great guy stamps, so don’t miss them! Be sure to visit Clearly iStamp to see the other team members who are revealing this stamp set on their blogs and to see the full set!

Enjoy, Rebecca
