You're The Reel Deal!

For Louie's Birthday Giveaway, Please Click HERE


I want to show you a little gift box I made for my husband for Father's day.  I have to say, of all of the boxes I have made over the years, this one was quite a challenge!  I really wanted to make it for him, he is a fisherman AND I purposely bought a stamp set from Cards TV Stamps that had the sentiment "You're The Reel Deal" because our last name is "Real" and I constantly tease him that he is the only "Real man" for me!

Isn't it cute?  It is from Cameo Silhouette by Megan Hardy Designs, it is called "Fishing Gift Bag"  I think fishermen call it a "Kreel". The fishing lure was a challenge to put together.  

Box Recipe
Cameo Silhouette
Bazzill Paper
Fish hooks (silver paper from stash)
brads for handle from stash
Sentiment - Cardz TV Stamps - "It's A Guy Thing"
