I have to make several of these boxes - about 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 2 in size - all for male recipients. My first instinct is to put some flowers on it but that just seems too froo froo. Any suggestions on how to finish these so they a masculine feel to them?

some tool embellies? I know Jolee's made some a while ago that I used on a LO for my grandpa.

Maybe brads shaped like screws?

Male themed paper in browns, greens, tans, dark blues?

Simple ribbon with tools on it?

What about embossing with silver and then adding metal rimmed tags

I really like the embossing idea, and silver would match perfectly back to the bells I added.

they are Christmas gifts for the males in my work group. I made little purses for all the gals but kinda figured the guys probably wouldn't appreciate it too much.
