For Christmas this year I'm working on making some gifts for some of my close familly and relatives. I decided to make a bunch of different cards for them to use over the year. This way they never need to worry about running out to buy a card at the last minute. I did this a few years ago and it was a real hit with my best friend Sylvia. She said that having the cards on hand to give to people at the office when they've been ill or have a birthday helped make her seem thoughtful. Haha! Silly Sylvia. She's already thoughtful. :)
I grabbed some small cardboard gift boxes from the dollar store last week that are large enough to fit the typical handmade cards of 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". At the moment I'm working fiercely on cards they'll like that I can fill those boxes up with. I think the key is to keep them simple. Here are some cards I've made so far;
Some cards they'll use may be;
I thought about Valentine's cards but I don't think they'd use them. You could include them in your box if you're doing the same thing. I've also made some tabs/dividers for the box so it's kept somewhat organized. I made and named four tabs;
I'll post a picture of the finished product soon. I hope that covers it, and yes, I do see the irony of having 'Get Well' and 'Sympathy' cards stored together. ;)
Have a great holiday!
