    Love Sending some love around the world [IMGS!] - first care package!

    Advertisements
    So I've technically already sent DB a care package, but it was full of books and a copy of the lease agreement so he could fill out BAH forms. Well, he's yet to receive it (I it hasn't been lost because the books were really cool, if even from the thrift store!). So after seeing all these lovely ladies do themed care packages, here's mine: Sending some love from around the world.

    Flap 1: Original idea was "A Christmas in July" which was scrapped, but kept on in light of needing to send this out if he's to receive it next month!


    Flaps 2-4 have little notes and phrases of 'I love you' in various languages, with which language underneath it. Languages used: English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portugese, Mandarin, Kanji, Greek, Russian, Czech, cutesy, Arabic




    Here are the items unpacked with post-its:



    And my awesome packing skills (I totally wrapped the soda in like 12 ziploc baggies and 4 sheets of bubble wrap!):


    Items mailed to him:
    Mountain Dew (mini cans)
    Oreos
    Slim Jims
    Stride gum
    Five gum
    Kool-aid water bottle mixers (grape and blueberry single servings)
    Starbust big box
    Keyboard buttons erasers
    3 mini lint rollers
    Playing cards
    Sunblock
    Aloe rub
    Sunblock chapstick
    Stress Reduction kit
    CD with a video message from me (which I'm going to make tonight)

    great package! the soda might be a bad idea, I never sent it just because I thought the pressure on the plane would pop them in the cargo hold I dont know though...that might be a silly thought

    I've thought about it, but like I said, if they pop they are in multiple ziploc bags and bubble wrap to keep it from the other items.

    But I know there are plenty of people on here who have sent other carbonated items, and they got there in one piece, including His_Girl who sent her DB (on my DB's sub) some and it got there just fine -- with less packing...
