The ManFlesh is the IT manager at a wildlife-related organization.  We got his employees, "The Nerds," these nifty little tools for Christmas gifts. 



I was hoping to find boxes of the appropriate size and just wrap them up traditionally, but the right size boxes didn't present themselves on the first try so I picked up these bags, tissue, and ribbon and then printed these copyright-free elk clip art elk on wood grain scrapbook paper.



And these are the nifty little tools we're giving them.

I think they'll go over well with The Nerds who are all guys, but also kind of into dorking out and have seemed to appreciate when I do it. Wink

Cute stuff! The scrapbook paper really does look like wood. I thought you screened it onto thin sheets of plywood.

Thank you!  I have tried more than a couple wood grain papers in my day and this one is pretty good.
