I've had a creative few days - it's really helped take my mind of a few stressful things - nothing like cranking up some music and disappearing for a while then resurfacing with something you've made! So here is my next bit of "creativeness" I would like to share with you: OMG I am SO in love with this printable template - "Milk Made" little carton & crateI was totally inspired by Lauren Meaders one - absolutely LOVE her style! You can see it here. As she did as well, I have joined 2 crates together here to make a square.
Inside the 2 cartons, I have printed off some little cards that have some "suggestions" on them. Also, I am going to include some postage stamps and some matching little gift cards (kinda got distracted making my next project so haven't made the tags yet, but I will!).
I want the gift-receiver to be able to pull out a card at any time and feel inspired to do something nice. For example I have typed up ones like:
- "Invite someone over for a coffee"
- "Send someone an I Miss You card"
- "Tell someone how special they are to you".
These little gift cards are the perfect size to send someone a little note or to attach to a gift or flowers.I have made 10 little gifts and have included envelopes in the crate as well.
I want it to be a "one-stop shop" for someone to send some love and thoughts to someone else! If only we all did this more often!
Thanks for coming to look! I hope to make 2 more of these for Charlotte's school teachers so if I do, I'll pop them on to!
