    he finally got them!

    Advertisements
    his first two boxes!!!
    okay, i'll admit i went a little overboard on the first two. one was full of snacks and the other was full of toiletries, medicine, and other items that i knew he would love while he's away from home (ex: heating pad).
    here's the picture of the first box

    the second box was a snack box and i didn't really decorate it at all. but i wrote "being loved gives you strength, loving another gives you courage. and being with me gives you snacks!" around the top haha. he loved them both.

    so, since he is currently at location that has no coffee, microwave, or hot water for making teas and whatnot, i decided to send him my single-cup keurig. i wont be needing it as i'm moving home next week for a few months to save up some money. this is how i decorated the box that I sent all the coffee and other accessories in (including two of the sharpie-mugs from pinterest)



    im so happy they made it feeling very proud and excited right now haha

    I think the envelope on the side is so cute and I might steal that idea.

    hehe steal away! i was just going to put the letter in the box but i didn't want to risk him accidentally throwing it out. i wrote him 18 letters over the 6month period we dated before he deployed. so they are so fun to look back at and pretty special. he loved the first one and i plan to send them to him in his boxes

    I am on my fifth box and mine do not look at good as yours! I try, but I struggle with it... only kind of craft I truly struggle with. Do you use tape or glue or what to secure the scrapbook paper? Also, how did you do the letters for your package, yours are nice and neat... I usually hand write mine. I want to cut some out but haven't figured out the best way for that yet.

    For my last box I bought the letter stickers, they were perfect!
