Many of you already know that my husband is deployed right now for 9 months and Connor and I have had a lot of fun putting packages together for him. We have been sending him a package every two weeks and it really has helped this deployment go by faster for all of us. In a recent email, my hubby mentioned that a lot of people on the ship haven’t received any care packages and most likely won’t.
I was a little shocked by this. So after talking to my mom and my aunt, we decided to create Christmas care packages for some of the sailors.
My husband sent me the names of 10 sailors and we got to work on filling the boxes with items they needed and wanted.
Then I thought it would be fun to decorate the inside of the boxes to make it as festive as possible. I used EZ Start Printed Packaging Tape, scrapbook paper, and holiday stickers to add a little Christmas cheer to each box. This way when they open the box they will see pretty ornaments or peppermints.
I love the way they turned out and I can’t wait to hear what they think of their care packages.
I also had a lot of EZ Start Printed Packaging Tape left over and thought it would be fun to make holiday pencils for Connor. I cut a strips of packing tape the length of the pencil and wrapped the tape around the pencil. Then I found these erasers at AC Moore and Connor added them to each pencil. We kept a few at our house and gave the rest to his teacher to give out as prizes in the class treasure chest.
Now I’m looking around for more stuff that I can wrap in EZ Start Printed Packaging Tape!!
