    Update! He got his packages today (I sent two others with towels and sheets) and he said that he loved them! He was able to take the paper out of the box and put it on his wall locker Im soooo freaking happy today!
    oh and it got there super fast, i mailed it friday!







    our

    favorite

    things



    and then bottom

    it says "but our favorite thing ever... is to be together!"

    all around the inside of the box i wrote "our favortite" things. I put our favorite restaurants, thing to do on saturdays, etc.
    In it i put his favorite snacks! pringles, fruit snacks, sunflower seeds, rice krispy treats,skittles and jolly ranchers
    Thanks for looking!

    How have I missed these scrapbooking letters? I'm a scrapping nut! I love how the paper fits nearly perfectly on the boxes. Makes it super easy!

    well these came in a "big stack" of paper..... like tons of paper lol and it had letters to punch out and sticker quotes, corners for pictures and page designs all in one "set" i guess you could call it! its helpful for my scrapbooking and REALLY came in handy lol. yeah the scrapbook paper is a perfect fit on the bottom, and for the sides its almost 1/2 a sheet of paper.

    I just use a whole sheet of paper on the sides and then the whole box is covered. I had to clip a little off the ends of the flaps, but they fit really well.
