A Crafty Care Package



Our church is sending care packages to our students away from home.  They have been collecting pop corn, KD, hot chocolate, Chap Stick, noodles, and any other little thing that a student might need.
When I heard about this project I wanted to be involved! I was quite homesick when I was away at school so I loved the idea of sending them a care package, letting them know that we are thinking about them.
Here are some pictures of what I came up with to add to it...







All the males will receive the same card...lol!!



A “Hot Chocolate Holder”
This little book holds two sleeves of hot chocolate.

In the back of this picture there are some Post it Note holders that have been embossed and monogrammed with the students initial



The paper I used is from Recollections, K & Company- the Amy Butler Collection, Classic K Design paper and a pack from Costco.

The Cuttlebug Embossing folders that I used are: Victoria, Swiss Dots, Tiny Bubbles and Floral Fantasy.

The cuts for these projects are from the Create A Critter, Elegant Edges, Gypsy Wanderings and Sentimentals Cricut Cartdgrides. I also used a Spellbinder die- Fancy Tags for one of the cards.

The stamped sentiments are from My Pink Stamper, Scrappy Moms and the monograms are from Martha Stewart.



The hot chocolate holder was a great idea I got from watching a video by Sara at mypinkcricut.  Here is a link to her viedo. She will give you the instructions on how to make this cute little book...How you decorate it are up to you!!



I have left the cards empty on the inside so that people at church can sign them and write little notes to the students :)



Thanks for stopping by,
Cheryl

  1. Cheryl those are wonderful, and what a great idea. That is very nice for the church to do that for the kids. It is an awe full feeling to be home sick. Keep up the great work. I have to apologize you posted on my blog awhile ago and never received it until now. I really enjoyed this post thanks for the link to the hot chocolate packages and keep up the great work.
