    Giggle I had a breakthrough today... so I had to put it to paper... or should I say box?

    Advertisements
    So a couple themes away from what I'm doing next, I have a "Deployment Survival Kit" theme, and I while I was looking up things for my Pirate CP I had a breathrough.

    Make the box look like a First Aid Kit so instead of wasting what I think is a pretty cute Idea I made a part for the top, so i didn't forget... because I'm usually very good at forgetting things

    And then I printed up a modified list from whats in that little Care Package thing we have, when you're on the front page, KWIM? (Well I updated it to better fit us, and to go with a boat in the ocean, instead of dry land.) and put I'm going to glue it to one of the flaps... you'll all see that when I get around to that package... but anyway, here it is:




    of course, it's going to look more like a first aid kit, I'm goign to write Deployment Survival Kit on where the Medical Cross is as well, but I just wanted to put that there so I didn't forget by the time I did that package

    be cool.

    rofl funny thing is, I didn't even think about the 4th of july

    I was going to do a "Life's a beach, and we both know those suck" (we don't like the beach) themed one, with suckers and gob stobbers and all that, along with beach stuff, and then a Christmas in July one... but now I have to brainstorm on one for the 4th, and one of those two are left in the dust

    Hmm... I'll have to think for a moment on that


    here's what I've brainstormed so far:
    the second opening flap, where the medical cross is, make that a flag instead with pop up "Happy 4th of July" on it (cut out letters in construction paper and put a little paper made spring behind it. here's a video tutorial i just found that shows pretty well what I'm talkin about if you don't know how to make one already)

    I'll add more as my brain crunches harder

    be cool.

    On orientaltrading.com they have a little beach ball that's got stars and striped on it, I'll probably end up getting something like that from a local store, and hit up the store for the 4th of july themed candy.

    Also, include a bunch of "American Past times" themed stuff, like Big League Chew (the gum with the big baseball player on it, KWIM? and BBQ stuff, like those gummy dinners, that you can get them in hamburgers fries and hot dogs, maybe even find a BBQ pack of them?

    be cool.

    lol well DF and I bought a dog for when I move up there when he's back, so I'm going to send him a mini father's day package with another box I send from our dog with his paw print (how I'm going to get the little turd to let me do that, IDK yet ) and scooby snacks and all that. For humans, i have no idea lol. Maybe do your kid's hand prints on the box, with little pictures in the palm of the prints so he knows who's print is whose, and maybe a picture of them all with a Happy Father's Day Banner?

    be cool.
