    Open When...

    Advertisements
    Okay, so I am doing Open When.. cards for my boyfriend. He's really down right now and I think these will cheer him up (: also he deploys in March /: so I figured these would be perfect for that too since he'll be gone for at least 18mo. ): Does anyone have any ideas on some cards though? I want to make as many as possible! Here is a list of what I have completed so far:

    Open When..

    You have had a bad day
    You need to know how much I love you
    Your birthday ( I added balloons and confetti)
    You need to know Jesus loves you
    You need a smooch
    You miss me
    You Want to know what I love about you
    You need a laugh (I added some of his favorite comic strips)
    You are bored (I made a personalized crossword and added some other stuff)
    You are tired

    I did these for last deployment. I think DH forgot about them, because they're currently sitting on his dresser unopened...

    But a couple I did that aren't on your list are
    when you miss home
    if you get sick

    Ooh thank you! (: Haha I can already hear him now for the "when you get sick" one...my immune system is invincible, I don't get sick. (He does because when he got back home after coming to see me he got sick lol). So I am DEF gonna do that one! Haha.

    I remember a few threads about this already, here are a couple I found that might help you get some more ideas.

    I've written a letter or a note for every one of them and I've tried to add something fun or sentimental to them too...like for the when you are bored one I went online and made personalized crossword puzzles and for the bad bay one I added a piece of bubble wrap...for his birthday I he actually has two cards lol a real bday card and then the one with confetti and balloons. And I just made one that says when you need some cheering up and I made two personalized CDs with some of his favorite worship music and another with a bunch of peppy songs.
