Operation Handmade Shoebox: Note card kits!
This is my last post on creating a handmade shoebox! This one is super easy! Colored cardstock folded to create cards, envelopes and a stamp and ink from the $1 bins at Michael's makes a great card kit for them to create their own note cards!
One thing I've learned through this project of creating a handmade shoebox is that not only is it created with love, it is much cheaper than going out and buying things for my shoebox.
The dolls were made from scraps I had on hand, pillowcase dresses were $1 and these kits were about $2.50 to make. The art kits were also less than $2 to make. So, for just under $5 - we'll be able to give a host of handmade goodies to create a special box. Obviously, I will include some candy treats and toiletry items - but this will be the bulk of our box.
Hope you've been inspired to put a handmade touch into your shoebox this year!
